Meal plans are comprised of two different forms of payment: meal swipes and dining dollars. Meal swipes are allotted either weekly or per semester and can be used in two different ways: to pay for an all-you-care-to eat meal at The Den or for a “meal transfer” at our retail locations on campus. Dining dollars work just like cash with the bonus of being tax-free! They can be used to pay for food and other items at any of our dining locations on campus.
You must have your Wildcard with you to all meals and retail transactions. Your Wildcard can only be used by yourself. Meal plans are not transferable and can only be used by the original meal plan holder. You cannot use meal swipes to pay for your friends to eat.
Any Shepherd Union restaurant, The Den, The Store, 626 Marketplace, It's A Wrap, and Starbucks will accept Dining Dollars.
*All dining dollars for student plans expire at the end of the spring semester.*
They are carried over from the fall to the spring when a new meal plan is purchased in the spring. They are not carried over from year to year, as all dining dollars for student plans expires at the end of the spring semester. They cannot be refunded. They do not expire for faculty/staff members unless you are no longer working at the university.
If you live off-campus, you can purchase a traditional meal plan at the Information Desk in the Shepherd Union or online.
If you live on campus and have a meal plan, you can use your meal swipes at multiple locations, including The Den, our location made for resident diners, Waldo's Cheesie Grill, and others. See the full list of locations here.
That depends on the meal plan that you are on. It can be anywhere between 7 to 19 per week, unless you are on a block plan.
We are always available to discuss a personalized program to make sure your dining experience is delicious, nutritious and safe. Visit in person at the Dining Services office in the Shepherd Union or call (801)626-6323 to get started. We would love to meet you and discuss your options.
