Meal Plan

Students will be enrolled in a comprehensive meal plan with a flexible spending account (Ole Miss Express) loaded on their Ole Miss ID card.

  • 42 Rebel Market meals (2 meals a day, Monday-Friday)
  • $120 Ole Miss Express cash (flexible spending)

Rebel Market. Students will use their meal plan at the Rebel Market, an all-you-can-eat cafeteria with a variety of food stations, including Asian fusion, grill, home cooking, pasta and pizza, and a salad bar. Gluten-free and vegan options are also available.

Ole Miss Express. Express cash is a flexible spending account with a declining balance that students can use for a variety of purchases. Express cash is recommended as a supplement to the meal plan for small meal purchases, such as breakfast. Express cash can also be used for books, laundry, vending machines, and restaurants on campus and select locations in Oxford.

Weekend Meals. Meals on the weekend, off campus meals, and snacks are not calculated in the above meal plan. Students will need extra food money to eat off-campus and/or while on weekend trips.

Health and Safety

The welfare and safety of all of our students is the Office of Pre-College Programs and the University of Mississippi's top priority. We take safety very seriously and have policies and protocols in place that aid in the prevention and in the occurrence of emergent situations.

Health Care
For non-emergency health care, Summer College students have access to the V.B. Harrison Student Health Center located on campus. The Student Health Center is open Monday-Thursday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Fridays 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

"Urgent Care" clinics are located throughout Oxford and are a good option when the Student Health Center is closed (e.g. weekends and after hours).

For emergency health care, students will be transported to the North Mississippi Baptist Memorial Hospital Emergency Room. Non-emergency and emergency contact numbers will be provided at orientation.

LiveSafe APP
LiveSafe is a free safety mobile app that the University of Mississippi (UM) provides to all students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni, and visitors. This app provides a streamlined way for you to communicate directly with UM safety officials to better protect you. By leveraging the community's eyes and ears, LiveSafe aids in keeping the campus safe. We strongly encourage Summer College students and parents to download this mobile application before arriving on campus. More information will be given at orientation.
