Elevate is a great option for students. The food is WAY better then all options offered by my school and for a much better deal.
Samantha Alto
I am so thankful I switched from my campus dining plan over to Elevate meal plan. The value, taste, and ease of ordering at delicious restaurants around Richmond is a phenomenal experience. Thank you Elevate!
Allison Chan
I love how convenient elevate is! It’s a much better value than the school dining plan and the food is so much better! I would highly recommend to anyone considering.

Common Questions

How do I add meals to an existing account?

During checkout, enter the student's email used to login on the Elevate app. The meals will automatically get added to the student's existing account.

Can I purchase with a 529 plan?

Yes! Typically, you can use your Elevate receipt for reimbursement. We recommend checking with the whoever is managing your 529 account to confirm what they will need. Email us if you need to pay via check or if you have any questions.

What happens after I purchase?

You'll receive an order confirmation, and instructions to create an account where you can order using the Elevate app (available on iOs, Android, and the web).

Are Elevate plans only for one semester?

When you purchase an Elevate plan, you’re really purchasing a pack of meals. If you run out before the end of the semester you can add more anytime, and if you have extra meals at the end of the semester your meals will rollover until you graduate.
