MIT Dining for Academic Year 2021-22


Dining is implementing the new meal plan structure recommended by the Meal Plan Working Group in early 2020. This action was put on hold for the 2020-21 academic year due to the pandemic. There are two primary components: 1. Dining dollars have been removed from most plans to reduce the top-level price, but remain an opt-in; and 2. The class year plan minimums are changing in a phased rollout beginning with the Class of 2025. No current students are impacted.

Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars are optional, except for the 225 + $150 plan. You can add any amount to your account: http://mycard.mit.edu. Campus retail locations, house dining, and several off-campus locations all accept dining dollars for food and beverage purchases. Dining dollars come with a 5% discount (each $1.00 in purchase costs you .95 cents in dining dollars) at on-campus dining locations. Unused Dining Dollars roll over from the fall to spring semester, as long as there is a spring contract. If there is no spring contract, a credit goes to your account for remaining fall dining dollars. All dining dollars expire after commencement on May 27, 2022.  Dining Dollars will be the default tender, followed by TechCash, in campus retail dining operations, except LaVerde’s in W20.
