Where to Use Your Dining Dollars Image Image Image Image

Dining Dollars are included as part of your meal plan.  The meal plan that you chose informs you how many Dining Dollars you have to spend this semester.

You can spend your Dining Dollars at all University Dining locations across campus, including Chet's Place in Carkoski Commons and the 1872 Grill in Julia Sears.  Use your Dining Dollars by presenting your MavCARD when you make a purchase.  Your purchase will be deducted from your account and your new balance will be shown on your receipt. If you are unsure of your balance, just ask a cashier to scan your MavCARD (balances can be displayed without making a purchase).

Taking Your Meal on the Go


University Dining Offers Convenient, Reuseable To-Go Containers for Students who Want to Take a Meal Outside the Dining Hall.

You can use your meal plan to take a meal out of Carkoski Dining Hall instead of eating it in the dining hall.  In order to take your meal out in a container, you must put down a $5 refundable deposit (you can use your Dining Dollars for a deposit if you wish).  When you bring your used container back, you can get a new container or get your $5 back (which will be credited to your Dining Dollars balance).
