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, Juniper Flip Kitchen located in The Corner Market and 727 Eats located in The Reef. 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.

Students MUST request their USFCard online at least two days in advance of their move-in appointment in order to pick up the card during their move-in appointment time.

Requesting Your USF ID Card

For new students picking up their first USF ID card:
New students should request their initial USFCard through MyBullsPath, or directly at the USFCard Request Site. Your Oasis account will be charged $10 for your initial ID card. 

For returning students who already have a current USF ID card:
No action is needed. You can continue to use your existing USF ID Card for all services.

For returning students needing a replacement USF ID card:
To request a replacement for an existing card, please enter your request at the 
USFCard Request Site and email to notify the Card Center that you would like to pick up your card during the grand opening check-in process. Your Oasis account will be charged $15 for your replacement ID card.

Don't forget! You must present a valid government-issued photo ID to receive your USFCard.

Residence Hall Access

A USF ID is not required for a student to check in and receive their keys. HOWEVER, a USF ID is required in order to gain access to a student's residence hall.

Students arriving for move-in who have requested their USF ID at least two days in advance of their move-in appointment will be able to pick it up at USF ID Card Services during their hours of operation. Residents should plan to pick up their ID either before or after checking in and receiving their keys. Students who have not requested their USF ID in advance are still required to complete the online request. Once approved, students can expect their card to be ready for pickup in 2-3 business days.
