All residents who reside in the Uptown Residence Hall must sign up for a meal plan. If you live off campus or are a resident of CIA's Euclid 117 apartments, you also may choose to sign up for a meal plan.
CWRU’s CaseOneCard, or CaseCash, is an option that allows you to add money from an existing checking account to your ID. It also is available with any meal plan in $100, $200, or $300 per semester denominations. CaseCash can be used at retail dining locations and retail shops in the University Circle area. In addition, it can be used like cash at the University bookstore, snack shops, and selected copy, vending, and laundry machines. You can carry a balance all four years you are at CIA and unused Case Cash carries over from year to year. Dollars can be added with a credit card at any time through the CaseCash website or by using cash-at-value transfer stations on campus.
Hours of Operation
You may make changes to your meal plan up until the end of the first week of each semester. After that week, you will be unable to make any changes until the following semester. All changes go through the Director of Student Life and Housing.

Your CIA identification card is a very powerful tool. You are required to carry it at all times for identification in the academic buildings. It also has many other uses. For instance, if you live in the residence hall, it serves as your outside door key. If you want a meal plan, it is your food ticket.
