MIT Dining for Academic Year 2021-22


Block plans have a set number of meals to be used throughout the entire semester. The balance will decrease every time you swipe for a meal and you can use any number of meals per day. For reference, the 225 Block is approximately 14 meals per week. You can use meal swipes for guest meals.

The Any 19 plan has a set number of meals for each week (Sunday – Saturday) and the plan resets every Sunday. The plan comes with 8 guest meal swipes that can be used following the Change Period. This option is best for students who are confident they will use all meals every day consistently throughout the semester.

Fall meal plan period: Saturday, September 4, 2021 through Friday, December 17, 2021
Spring meal plan period: Saturday, January 29, 2022 through Wednesday, May 18, 2022

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.
