MEAL SWIPES

Use your swipes at our dining hall locations, where you can choose as much as you want to eat and dine in with us.  The dining halls are also the best place to eat if you have a food allergy or intolerance. We have a variety of stations that accommodate vegan, vegetarian, and other specialty diets.

Flex Bucks

Flex Bucks are very flexible and can be used at all of our locations. They spend dollar for dollar  – and you get special discounts throughout the year while using them on campus.

CASH EXCHANGE

If you purchase an Unlimited Orange 450, the Unlimited Blue 250, or the Unlimited 5-Day 375, you also get Cash Exchange swipes that can be used at select locations on campus. You can use one swipe per day for $6.50 at these locations – giving you swipe value in retail and saving some of your Flex Bucks.
