Dining Dollars

Hey there, students! Did you know about the ultimate money-saving secret on campus? Say hello to Dining Dollars! These bad boys are loaded right onto your U Card and can be used to satisfy those hunger pangs at Superior Dining, the Food Court, The Grind, The Gadget, Studio 1208, and of course Northern Shores Coffee Shop (because let's be real, caffeine is a must).

And here's the best part - if you're living on campus, you automatically get $100 in Dining Dollars. That's right, it's all included in your housing contract so you can feast worry-free, even if you don't have a meal plan. Plus, Dining Dollars are tax-exempt, which means you're saving nearly 10% in sales tax compared to using your credit card. Score! But wait, there's more! 

Off-campus students can also add Dining Dollars to their U Card. That's right, you don't have to miss out on all the delicious food options just because you've got a sick off-campus living situation. 

Now, here's the catch. Dining Dollars are like milk - they have an expiration date. Dining Dollars roll over from the fall semester to the spring semester but then at the end of the academic school year, they disappear. So make sure to enjoy them while you can and don't forget to use them all up when spring finals week hits.  Happy dining, everyone!
