Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars are added to your I-card and specifically reserved for on-campus food purchases.
Your campus ID card (I-Card) will be credited with the amount of Dining Dollars corresponding with your purchase. Hand the cashier your I-card each time you make a food purchase and your account balance will be reduced by the cost of your purchase. You can use your Dining Dollars to purchase food any time our retail dining facilities are open and as many times a day as you like. You decide when, where, and how to use your Dining Dollars.

Where can I use them?

From national restaurant chains like Chick-fil-A to specialty restaurants like Campagna, there are many on-campus food options.

How many Dining Dollars do I need?
Your personal preferences, eating habits, time of day, and venue choice help determine the amount of Dining Dollars you will need. The average cost for a typical meal is approximately $7.50. Try considering your daily routine. Do you eat three meals a day? Will your class schedule, studying, extracurricular activities, and social events interfere with dining? Will you miss dinner due to employment or evening classes? Anticipating the answers to these and similar questions will help you to select a level that best fits your lifestyle and needs.
