What Is a Meal Plan?
A Meal Plan unlocks delicious meals, coffee, snacks, and more, at over 30 locations across the Tampa and St. Petersburg campus. Your Meal Plan includes Meal Swipes and Dining Dollars, conveniently loaded onto your USF ID that you can use on BOTH campuses. No need to carry additional cards or cash!
Meal Swipes give you access to any of our all-you-care-to-eat dining halls: The Hub, Juniper Dining, and The Nest.
You may also use one Meal Swipe per day at Flip Kitchen, Bay Coffee and Tea Company, or Restaurant Rotation, located in Argos Exchange. The Meal Swipe includes one entrée and one fountain beverage.
Dining Dollars may be used at any USF Dining location on both the Tampa and St. Petersburg campus. Visit our locations page for location information, including dining hall menus and hours of operation.
