Housing Options


Credits are the currency used at the Sycamore Dining Hall and on weekends after 1:30pm in the HMSU Commons at select locations. In the Dining Hall, students pay one price at the door and can eat all they like during that meal. Use of credits in the dining hall is the best use of your meal plan money. 

Commons Cash is currency which can be used at all ISU Dining campus locations. Commons Cash has a dollar for dollar value.

Students select meal plans in their Housing Portal.
