Meals associated with the meal plan may only be used by the student who purchased the meal plan. You may use the Dining Dollars that come with your meal plan to purchase a meal for your guest.

Dining Dollars can be used at all University Dining Services venues and at both convenience stores located on campus!

Dining Dollars associated with meal plans are exempt from sales tax with one exception. The purchase of non-food items in the convenience stores, such as health and beauty items, newspapers or magazines, will be charged 7.00% tax. Food items purchased at University Dining Services locations will be exempt from tax for students only. For more information about your Mav Cash, which is not exempt from tax, please contact the Residential Life office. Additional Meal Plan FAQS from Residential Life
