When you go away for college, you’re responsible for feeding yourself three square meals a day. Cooking by yourself can be challenging–and since you’re a broke college student, you can’t afford to eat out every night. What are the meal options for people who live in a student apartment?
Do Student Apartments Come with Meal Plans?
Most student housing in Baton Rouge doesn’t come with a cafeteria or a meal plan. As far as meals go, you’ll have to eat in your university’s cafeteria or cook for yourself in your apartment. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t score free food from your apartment complex once in a while. Student apartments host a variety of events throughout the semester where you can socialize and grab free food that was cooked by the staff members or catered by a local restaurant.
Your apartment is also fully furnished with state-of-the-art appliances, so cooking for yourself is a breeze. If you’re in a pinch, you can throw a frozen dinner in the microwave or heat up some packaged ramen. But if you have the time, you’ve got everything you need to cook a hearty meal for yourself and your roommates.
