Meal Plans

Meal plans at Miami provide flexibility and value to match our students’ needs. They are flexible, transparent, and simple to use! Our Meal Plans are a combination of meal swipes and dining dollars. Learn more about your meal plan options and costs.

Diplomat Meal Plans

Meal plans are available to all Miami University students. Menus include a wide variety of freshly prepared and made-to-order items that have become Miami’s hallmark.

Meal Swipes

In order to help students manage their meal plans during the semester, and to get a better value, meal swipes are divided per week each semester. Depending upon the level you select, you'll get a specific number of meal swipes added to your card each week. Your meal swipes will reset early on Saturday morning of each week. If you have any unused meal swipes at that time, they do not carry forward. Our Minimum, Plus, and Standard levels also come with a "Bonus Week" of meal swipes. This means that those plans come with an extra week's worth of meal swipes, which DO roll forward each week. These are available to be used if you use up your normal week's worth of meal swipes.

Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars are can be used at any open dining location on campus. This offers students flexibility for on-the-go food and beverage options. You can also use Dining Dollars at the Dining Commons if you don't have swipes.

For continuing students, any unspent Dining Dollars will remain available for you to use as long as you are enrolled at Miami. If you're planning to graduate, or not return next year, unspent meal plan dollars are not refundable or transferable when you leave. We encourage you to monitor your balance regularly, and budget carefully if you're considering future deposit amounts before the end of the semester.

Account Balance

Each time you use your meal plan, your account balance is displayed at the register. Be sure to check out our Frequently Asked Meal Plan Questions page for helpful info about the plans.

Meal Swipe Flexibility

For quicker on-the-go options, our market locations offer Meals To Go that can be purchased with one meal swipe. Meals To Go are available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and include a York Street entrée, fruit, and bottled Miami water.
