Dining Plans

Penn Dining brings you flavorful, nutritious food and helps create community across campus. Dining plans are valuable to have because they give you easy access to conveniently located, great tasting meal options right on campus. Hang out with your friends and enjoy the array of tastes, fun events and the flexibility that truly makes a dining plan worth having.

Dining Dollar$ Discounts

Dining Plan holders will enjoy a 5% discount at Houston Market, Gourmet Grocer, Mark's Café, New College House, McClelland Express, Joe's Café, and Accenture Café when using your Dining Dollar$.

Need to Know Info

Fall 2017 Dining Plans begin on Tuesday, August 29th - the first day of class.

New students (freshman, transfer, and exchange) arriving for NSO on August 25th are provided with most meals through an NSO Dining Plan which is part of the New Student Orientation experience.

All students on a Dining Plan have the option to change their plan during the first 3 weeks of school - August 29th - September 19th.  Dining Plans can only be changed one time per semester.

All freshmen dining plans provide a specific quantity of swipes to the all-you-care-to-eat cafés for the semester. These can be used at any time during available meal periods. All plans also include Dining Dollar$ for use at any of our Penn Dining locations.

Upperclass and Graduate students can choose between traditional plans that contain both Dining Dollar$ and swipes or choose a Dining Dollar$-only plan. With a Dining Dollar$-only plan, you can still dine at the all-you-care-to-eat cafés at a discounted rate.

Students can sign up for a dining plan or add visits or Dining Dollar$ to their plans at any time throughout the academic year by using Campus Express.

Please note: Swipes and Dining Dollar$ are split by semester, so you will receive one-half of the allotted amount of swipes and Dining Dollar$ in the Fall, and the other half in the Spring.

Unused meal swipes do not carry over from the Fall semester to the Spring semester. Dining Dollar$ will roll over from the Fall semester to the Spring semester, but not from one academic year to another.

Cancellation and Change Policy

Cancellations are not permitted unless you are leaving the University for one of the following reasons: Leave of Absence, Withdrawal, Study Abroad, Graduation, or Fall Exchange Students (cancellation for Spring semester only).

All students will have the opportunity to log into Campus Express and make one change to their dining plan during the Fall Change Period.  The Fall Change period will run from August 29-September 19, 2017.  Students will also have a second opportunity to change their dining plan during the Spring Change Period, which will run from January 10-31, 2018.  Please note: any additional charge or refund due as the result of a dining plan change will be based on the current rates regardless of whether the initial sign-up was during a promotional period.
