Your Cardinal Card is accepted at numerous locations, both on and off-campus.

Meal Plan Account

Meal plans are mandatory for on-campus residents and full-time commuters (taking at least 12 credit hours with 9 or more hours on the Belknap Campus). Meal plan funds consist of meal swipes and flex points and can only be used for purchases at on-campus dining locations. (Cardinal Towne restaurants do not accept meal plan funds).

Meal swipes expire at the end of each semester; flex points expire at the end of the spring semester.

You save 6 percent every time you use your flex points.

If you run out of funds, simply add more with Cardinal Card Online. Any deposit above $100 earns a 10 percent bonus. Example: a $150 deposit give you $165 to spend
