Meal Taps

Students eating at the PHC dining room

The PHC Dining Room offers buffet-style dining and has the most variety in Heritage Commons. Residents with meal plans living in Heritage Commons primarily use their meals here, but anyone can dine at the PHC by paying at the entrance. Meal plan changes will only be accepted during the first two weeks of the semester and can be made in Housing U. Have dietary concerns? For most people, we have a solution! Visit G8 in the PHC Dining Room where meals are prepared without the eight most commons allergens.

Flex Dollars

Students purchase flex dollars as a part of their meal plan. Flex dollars work as a declining debit balance loaded on to students' University ID cards so students can purchase food and other items at the locations listed below. Flex dollars transfer between semesters but are no longer usable at the end of the academic year. Flex dollars allow students to access a wider variety of food options, plus students can eat at locations all over campus!

Meal Transfers

Students utilize a dollar value of a meal from your meal plan at another location on campus to purchase food and drinks. If food and drink purchases are over that amount, residents can use flex dollars, dining dollars, cash, or debit/credit for the remaining amount.

Dining Services has partnered with Starship to launch its innovative food delivery service, using autonomous personal delivery devices (PDDs). Starship’s service will operate during the opening hours of local campus dining services.

Customers can order and pay for food for delivery from the Starship app. Orders will be prepared and placed in the robot for delivery to an outdoor pin drop, provided by the customer.  The customer will open the locked delivery compartment with a code that is exclusive to that order. The Starship robot will return to select food service location for additional deliveries until service hours end.
