What is a Meal Plan?

A Meal Plan unlocks delicious meals, coffee, snacks, and more, at 14 locations across campus. Your Meal Plan includes Meal Swipes and Dining Dollars, conveniently loaded onto your student ID. No need to carry additional cards or cash!


Meal Swipes

Meal Swipes give you access to our all-you-care-to-eat dining hall, the Fresh Food Company, located in the Thad Cochran Center.

To-go meals: simply request a to-go box when you swipe in at The Fresh Food Company!

Bonus Bucks
Bonus Bucks come with the purchase of certain meal plans and may be used at any USM Dining location. These expire at the end of each semester. Visit our locations page for location information, including dining hall menus and hours of operation.



Dining Dollars

If you run out of Bonus Bucks, you can reload Dining Dollars. Dining Dollars may be used at any USM Dining location. Dining Dollars are used just like cash and one Dining Dollar is equal to one dollar. Unused Dining Dollars roll over from fall to spring semester. Visit our locations page for location information, including dining hall menus and hours of operation.
