A Meal Plan Just For You

Weekly Meal Plans give diners a bank of weekly meals to use around campus. These plans range from a Basic 7 with 7 meals a week, to a Prime 19 offering 19 meals per week. Meals are reset weekly on Sunday and expire every Saturday at midnight. They also come with Points that expire at the end of the academic year.

The Apartment Club is a block plan that gives diners a bank of meals that are valid throughout the semester. Meals are added to the plan at the beginning of each semester and expire at semester end. If you ever run out of meals you may purchase additional meals in blocks of 10 meals for $55, 30 for $165 and 50 for $275. 

Dining Dollars is a program where students, faculty and staff can deposit funds to their UH ID to use at our many retail dining locations like cash. Dining Dollars do not expire except after 24 months on inactivity. Deposits of $50+ earn 5% in bonus dollars and deposits of $100+ earn 10% in bonus dollars. With Dining Dollars you can budget your food money, earn extra funds for food, and make life easy.
