Meal Plans

With all of TU’s dining options, students can pick the meal plan that best suits their needs. Each meal plan includes Dining Dollars that can be used at any of the on-campus dining venues. They are accepted for food and beverages and in most vending machines. All Dining Dollars are assessed per semester. Dining Dollars must be used within the academic year, as they do not transfer to the following year and are non-refundable. Please review the first- and second-year housing and dining requirement.

Meal Trades

Meal trades are an added convenience that allow you to use a meal swipe from your TU dining plan on a fixed-price combo at any eatery in the Student Union. This additional option along with a meal swipe at Pat Case Dining Center for all-you-care-to-eat food allows you maximum flexibility with any meal plan.

There are two ways to utilize this meal swipe trade at eateries:

Mobile:Open your Mobile Ordering app from your mobile device (Apple Store & Google Play), scroll to find the fixed-price combo at the desired eatery and view eligible and customizable options. When confirming your order, click “Auto SV” and select “meal trade” in the pop-up box. This will pay for your meal as a meal trade instead of utilizing other forms of payment like dining dollars.

In-person:You are also able to use a meal trade at eateries when ordering in-person – signs at each venue specify the pre-fix combo. Once at the register, ask the staff member to utilize a meal swipe trade and you are all set!

Dietary Needs

Our Campus Dining Services Program can accommodate your special dietary requirements. For more information, please contact the Housing and Dining Office at 918-631-2516.
