MIT Dining Meal Plans

2022-2023 Meal Plans


Welcome!
 

Interested in learning more about meal plans through MIT Dining?  You've come to the right place!

These options were developed with student feedback and in collaboration with the Meal Plan Working Group composed of students, faculty, and staff from MIT Dining and the Division of Student Life.  

Our meal plans seek to optimize plan value and flexibility, encourage the use of meals, and ensure the dining program’s long-term financial sustainability.  All MIT students are welcome to enroll in a meal plan (including graduate students!), although undergraduate residents of buildings with in-house dining programs are required to enroll in a meal plan.  These residence halls include Baker House, Maseeh Hall, McCormick Hall, New Vassar, Next House, and Simmons Hall.

ENROLL IN A MEAL PLAN

 


Meal Plan Options
 

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.  Click the link above to visit your MyCard account to enroll in a meal plan.  

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. This option is best for students who are confident they will use all meals every day consistently throughout the semester.

Dining Dollars

 

Say hello to Dining Dollars - an easy, convenient way to pay for food on campus and at surrounding locations!  Campus retail and in-house dining locations, as well as several off-campus locations accept dining dollars for food and beverage purchases.

And who doesn't like a discount?  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 June 2, 2023.  Dining Dollars will be the default tender, followed by TechCash, in campus retail dining operations, except LaVerde’s in W20.

Your Health & Nutrition Are Our Priority

 

MIT wants to ensure that no student is struggling with food security, and we have established several resources that can help you easily access food.

Please visit MIT's DoingWell website for additional food resource information. Also, searching for food and grocery options on campus just got easier. Check out the MIT food and grocery map, a tool meant to showcase a wide-range of local dining and shopping options for members of the MIT community. Explore these local options and discover which are best for you and your needs! 

If you are struggling at all with accessing food, please contact Student Support Services. All students can also reach out to the Accessing Resources MIT (ARM) Coalition whose mission is to alleviate financial hardship by connecting students to campus resources.
