Great food is a requirement of any successful gathering of the minds, and there is no better way to enjoy a meal on UCO's campus than with a meal plan. These plans save customers sales tax on each purchase and are a discount each time you swipe into a dining location.
Meal plans are comprised of a combination of meal swipes and Dining Dollars. Meal swipes can be used at Ayer's Kitchen, or traded for specially marked combos at 1890 Metropolitan Cafe, Jack & Olive items at any Market location and Sidelines. Dining Dollars are accepted like cash on campus at any campus dining location, are never charged sales tax, and are held in a declining balance in an account tied to your campus ID card. Additional Dining Dollars can be added to your account any time in increments of $25, $50, $100, and $250.
What meal plan is best for you? Consider these things when choosing a plan:
- How many meals a week do you regularly eat?
- Will you want to eat on campus during nights and weekends?
- How often will you want to grab a small snack or drink during the day?
Rates pending Board of Regents approval.
Meal swipes can only be used once per period in Ayers Kitchen, Sidelines Sports Grill, 1890 Metropolitan Cafe, or for Jack & Olive products in the Market locations.
