There are times when a resident student is not feeling well and it may be unwise for them to come to a dining hall for a meal. In that case, complete an online Sick Meal Request form and send a representative to collect a Sick Meal on your behalf. You cannot come yourself, and we request that your representative wear a mask. If you are experiencing severe, repeated or extended illness (more than three days), we strongly urge you to go to the Health Center for assistance.
This service is intended as a stop-gap for a resident student who is staying in their room for a short period of time and provides basic nutrition.
SPECIAL SICK MEAL ACCOMODATIONS FOR STUDENTS ISOLATING IN THEIR ROOM DUE TO COVID
After reporting your positive test at return.umd.edu, students on a Resident Dining Plan may request sick meals using the form below. Due to the extended period of isolation:
- You or someone you designate may pick up the sick meal from the cashier.
- If you are picking up the sick meal, you must wear a N95 or KN95 mask. When coming to get your meal, do not go past the cashier.
- You may continue to get sick meals until your isolation period ends.
- As with all sick meals, we need at least 30 minutes notice prior to pick up.
If you need food or supplies from one of the on campus markets while you are in isolation, please have someone go for you. As long as you have reported your positive test results to return.umd.edu you can allow the person going to the market for you to use your UMD ID to access your Dining Dollars or Terrapin Express. Do not go to into a market or any dining location while in isolation
