Swipe and Save

These savings are calculated using the average price you pay for breakfast, lunch and dinner door rates, plus sales tax you would pay at Lincoln Dining if you did have a meal plan.

NEW!! Check out our new Dining Plan. The plan includes 200 swipes to be used exclusively at Lincoln Dining and $50 in Dining Dollars to be used any any Chartwells location on campus. *Reminder all swipes and dining dollars must be used by the end of the semester.

Dining Dollars with Added Bonus

Dining dollars are accepted like cash in all dining locations. It is a declining balance account that works like a debit card. Each time you make a purchase, that amount is subtracted from your balance. You can use your dining dollars to purchase beverages, snacks, or even a full meal. Dining dollars roll over from the fall to spring semester, but any unused funds will be forfeited at the end of spring. You can purchase extra Dining Dollars as needed right here on the website, just choose from below.  Upgrade Bonus: Add additional value and purchasing power to your plan with a Dining Dollar upgrade. The Dining Dollar upgrade is perfect for the occasional latte, lunch with a friend or a late-night snack.
