Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars allow residential and commuter students, faculty, and staff to purchase food and beverages at both on and off-campus locations via a declining balance attached to their Mobile OneCard. Through MMC’s special partnership with Grubhub, you can use your Dining Dollars to buy food from hundreds of restaurants nationwide, as well as from our on-campus Café, The Nugent Lounge Coffee Shoppe, and the 55 th Street C-store. Dining Dollars can also be used in the Griffin Gear School Store!

Benefits of using Dining Dollars:

Convenience: As an MMC student, you will always have your Mobile OneCard with you for building access and library usage, so there is no need to worry about carrying cash or a credit card. You can quickly access your Grubhub app on your phone to place an order for pick up between classes, or before you go home for the day. You can also track your spending or check your current balance in the OneWeb page.

Save Money:  Through MMC’s special partnership with Grubhub, you can purchase food and beverages on campus with no added sales tax, no delivery fee, and no Grubhub transaction fees! You also save money by purchasing off campus, with all delivery fees waived at  restaurants that are part of the Grubhub+ program, free through graduation on orders $18 and above.  

Easy to Add: Running low on Dining Dollars? It’s easy to add (or have your friends and family add!) Dining Dollars to your account. To add additional Dining Dollars to your account, please visit the Center for Student Services (lower level of Nugent Hall).

Carry-over: Any funds not used by the end of the academic year will be carried over until you graduate or withdraw.

Helps with Budgeting:  The tiered options are offered so that families can better budget for the student’s planned Dining Dollars usage. The amount initially selected will be added to the student’s billing statement so that it can be included in any e-cashier monthly payment plan budget.

Residential students can choose from three Dining Dollar amounts for each semester:
  • $1545 (minimum required for residents)
  • $1850   
  • $2350   

Note: MMC Dining Dollars are not a traditional meal plan, and are not meant to cover three meals per day for the entire semester. Rather, Dining Dollars is a declining balance option to purchase food at the below locations. Dining Dollars are supplementary to the kitchens all residential students have in their residence hall apartments.

Grubhub Dining Dollars Locations On-Campus

Hours may be adjusted for large campus events, holidays, or college closures/breaks.  

Grubhub Off-Campus Vendors

In addition to the on-campus dining locations, MMC’s special partnership with Grubhub allows students to order from participating restaurants on the Grubhub app using their Dining Dollars, credit, or debit cards. As an MMC student, you’ll receive a Grubhub+ Student designation, which grants you unlimited $0 delivery from off-campus restaurants that are part of the Grubhub+ program, free through graduation on orders $18 and above.  

Residential Students

All residential students are required to participate in the Dining Dollars program with a minimum charge of $1545 for the fall semester and a $1545 charge for the spring semester. When applying for housing, residents select the desired amount of Dining Dollars. Residents who do not make a selection will automatically be enrolled in the minimum required amount of $1545 per semester. The Dining Dollars amount the student selects for the fall semester will automatically be charged to the resident’s account for the spring semester. Should the resident wish to change their spring semester Dining Dollars amount, the student must fill out the dining dollar change request form before the add/drop class date for each semester. There is no minimum required for commuter students, but the College does encourage all students to maintain a Dining Dollars account because of the benefits (see above).

Additional Info About Dining Dollars  

The College will carry-over any remaining Dining Dollars in a student’s account at the end of the fall semester and add them to the required Spring Semester Dining Dollars amount, and at the end of the Spring Semester, any unused Dining Dollars on the card will remain available for future use. Students who remain in housing will continue to be charged the required minimum of Dining Dollars each semester unless the student opts for more Dining Dollars. For all students, balances will continue to carry-over from semester to semester until the student graduates or withdraws from the College at which time any remaining Dining Dollars funds will be forfeited.

The College works with Grubhub, and restaurants on the Grubhub platform will accept Dining Dollars; however, the College reserves the right to change vendors without notice. Dining Dollars cannot be used to purchase alcohol or tobacco products. Fall and Spring Dining Dollars will be available on the published check-in date for the residence halls. Should a residential student with a medical condition wish to apply for a reduction or exception, they must contact the Office of Disability Services no later than October 1 for the fall semester or no later than March 1 for the spring semester.

Dining Dollars are non-transferable, and students using a Mobile OneCard that is not theirs will be in violation of the Student Code of Conduct. Students are responsible for all charges to their account and are encouraged to frequently check their usage and balance. If a student believes their card and/or ID number have been used fraudulently, they should contact the Center for Student Services for a list of charges to review. The report can only be investigated up to 4 weeks after the initial fraudulent charge. MMC will investigate to the best of our ability but cannot guarantee restitution.
