Campus Dining Services
For information regarding the university's response to COVID-19, including credits for meal plans, visit the coronavirus webpage.
Campus Dining Services provides the UCO community 10 dining choices in five different locations across campus to visit for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a quick pick-me-up. Supported through a partnership with Chartwells, all locations offer a range of options to meet the dietary needs of every person that steps foot on the UCO campus with a commitment to delicious, nutritious, and sustainable cuisine.
The easiest way to take advantage of this promise is through the purchase of a meal plan. Accessed via your campus ID, meal plans replace cash in all locations and result in stress-free savings with every use. Maximize these savings with a mix of meal swipes and Dining Dollars in your meal plan; meal swipes offer a guaranteed rate lower than the daily price of Ayer's Kitchen entry rate and Dining Dollars are never charged the 8.25% Edmond sales tax!
Make your meals go further by trading a swipe for a combo at 1890 Metropolitan Cafe, Sidelines Sports Grill, or for select Jack & Olive products in one of our Market locations. Just remember your meal periods, designed to help you budget your swipes to last all semester.
