Commuter Meal Plan

Dominican University's commuter meal plan allows you to eat in either the Dining Hall or the Cyber Cafe. Meal exchanges, snacks, and to-go options offer commuter students convenient, affordable meal options that work with your busy schedule. 

A swipe registers as a purchased meal. Each swipe allows you full access to our all-you-care-to-eat Dining Hall.

DU Dollars

DU Dollars are similar to Meal Plan Dollars, however they have the added benefit of not expiring. Similarly, when paying with DU Dollars, you receive the benefit of not having to pay tax. DU Dollars can be added to all meal plan options for commuters and residents in addition to the Plan Dollars.
