Meal Plans

How Do I Pay?

Meal Plan

Most residential students are required to purchase a meal plan. There are several meal plan options available to you. Each meal plan consists of Meal Swipes, Old Gold Swipes and Food Dollars. Choose the one that best matches your dining lifestyle. For more information on plans and pricing, please visit

Food Dollars

Food Dollars work like a debit account. Each time a purchase is made, the amount is deducted from the balance in your account. Food Dollars can be used at any campus dining location. Add Food Dollars to your account at any time at or by visiting the dining office located in Reynolda Hall, Room 12.

Meal Swipes

Meal Swipes are used to access the Fresh Food Company (The Pit), the Magnolia Room and the Hilltop Market. These locations feature a variety of stations, including a deli, salad bar, made-to-order Mongolian grill, Southern kitchen, pizza and made-to-order pasta.

Old Gold Swipes

Old Gold Swipes are included in your total number of meals and serve as enhancements to the traditional meals. A portion of your Meal Swipes is considered Old Gold. In addition to their usage as traditional Meal Swipes at any residential dining hall, these swipes may be used to purchase combo meals in the following locations: Chick-fil-A, Einstein’s, Forest Greens, Legal Grounds, Magnolia Room, Moe’s, Shorty’s, Starbucks, Subway, Village Juice and Zick’s.
