Dining Dollars and Guest Meals

You get dining dollars and guest passes with some meal plans.

Spend your dining dollars for an extra meal at the Marketplace or buy food or beverages at the Spencer Grill or Global Café.

You can also use your Dining Dollars to purchase food and non-alcoholic beverages at these local merchants: 

McNally’s, Jay’s Deli, Saint's Rest Coffee House, and (coming in spring of 2024) Dari Barn!

Use the guest passes to feed friends, family, or even your favorite professor.
