WHERE CAN I USE MY SWIPE & SAVE DINING PLAN?

CAN I CARRY MY DINING PLAN FORWARD PER YEAR OR TERM?

All taxable meal plans can be carried forward from semester to semester but expire when residences close in April. Please check with our food service office or Student Accounts for complete details.


IS MY MEAL PLAN REFUNDABLE?

Residential dining plans are only refundable if you withdraw from residence or from the university. The cost will be pro-rated based on the number of days in residence from move-in day until the date of withdrawal noted on the Academic Withdrawal Form. Some exceptions do apply. Please check with Residence Life for full details. 

Taxable Dining Plans are only refundable if you withdraw from the university and an administration fee of $40 is applied. Any bonus dollars, complimentary incentives and guest passes are not refundable. Your plan is valid September through April and does not transfer to the following year.


CAN I TAKE FOOD OUT OF THE DINING HALL?

Sorry, you are not allowed to take food out of Wheelock Dining Hall. These plans are for food that is consumed in the dining room only.


WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CARD IS LOST OR STOLEN?

The security of a card remains the cardholder’s responsibility. Cards should be treated like a credit or debit card. If a card is lost or stolen the cardholder is responsible for all charges made to that card until the card is reported lost or stolen. Report your lost or stolen card to Security in the Students’ Union Building so the missing card will be deactivated and a new one issued.


WHAT HAPPENS IF I FORGET MY CARD?

Your activated student card is the key to the whole dining plan system. If you forget it you will have to pay cash to gain access to the dining hall.


CAN I LEND MY CARD TO A FRIEND OR PURCHASE A MEAL FOR A FRIEND?

The Healthy 80, Convenient 60, 35 Meal Deal, and 10 Meal Sampler are based on swipes of the card so if you would like to use a swipe on a friend we would welcome the opportunity to serve them. The 5 and 7 Day plans are tax exempt therefore can only be used by the subscriber. Use your Swipe & Save Dollars or Dining Dollars (attached to some 7 day plans) to pay for your guest's meal.
