Community Dining Plan

HDH offers a Community Dining Plan for staff, faculty, and students without a Housing contract.

For a minimum deposit of only $25, this new account will give you a 20% discount at the registers of ALL Housing • Dining • Hospitality (HDH) restaurants and markets. That is 20% off EVERY time you make a purchase! The plan is easy to use, too—it’s linked to your campus ID card, so all you have to do is:

  1. Find something yummy to eat
  2. Tell the cashier to use your “Community Dining Plan”
  3. Swipe of the card, and… you’re done!

Eating and shopping at our locations helps keep costs low for our resident students. On their behalf, we thank you!

Where can I use my Community Dining Plan?
