Together, we can devise the casual or formal experience you desire for your guest, taking advantage of the great culinary teams of both Miami Catering and Miami University's Dining Services. Your Miami Experience can include banquets, concessions events, delivered meals in all university and Oxford spaces, specially themed menus, or simply delicious food you pick up and serve to your guests on your own. Our planners are ready to assist - call, email, or complete our RFP to begin the planning process.

Miami Campus Dining Cards

Miami departments and offices can receive assistance coordinating dining in Miami's various operations for campus guests from Conference Services. Meal cards can be programmed for use in a la carte and/or buffet locations and are flexible options to best fit each budget and event needs. Guests present these meal cards as a form of payment at cashier stations in each operation on campus. Careful coordination with Miami Dining makes the service seamless for your guests. Campus Meal card use can be combined with any catering event, concessions, or vending to create a flexible plan that is right for you and your guests.
