Parent involvement is encouraged, but child care options are available. CONTACT US for details.

Meal passes are a very convenient option for those attending the Institute. Meal passes to the University Dining Service’s Food Zoo are $108.00/person/week. There is no charge for children ages 3 and under.

A lunch-only pass may be purchased for $31.00 for the week; Wednesday lunch is not included. This is a good option for people not staying on campus.

Meal passes begin with supper on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. Purchased meal passes provide 15 meals (starting with dinner on Sunday through breakfast Saturday). Lunch and dinner on Wednesday are not included (afternoon off).

Meals may also be purchased individually at the walk-in price instead of purchasing a pass for the week.
