Dining plan options for Faculty & Staff
In this Section

Want to enjoy fresh, convenient food and get a discount at the same time? You've got it! University Dining has two flexible dining plans for faculty and staff that make eating on campus easy and enjoyable. Read below to learn about the BlockPlan and Campus Cash account options. 

Campus Cash Logo

Campus cash is an additional debit account that is used for other campus purchases. Most faculty/staff find they will need some amount of Campus Cash funds at the start of the semester. Each plan holder chooses an amount to deposit based on anticipated needs. Students may deposit more funds to Campus Cash throughout the semester, if necessary. A Stout BlueCard is used to access all account funds thereby eliminating the need to carry cash.

Where can Campus Cash funds be used? 

  • Residence Halls Laundry Facilities 
  • Vending Machines (soda and snacks)
  • Copy Machines 
  • Service Center (tickets, printing)
  • Stoutfitters (supplies, clothing, gifts)
  • Health & Fitness Center (membership, aerobics passes)
  • Stout Adventures (climbing wall membership)
  • Intramurals (participation fees)
  • University Housing Mailroom (stamps, mailing supplies)
  • Instructional Resources 
  • Robert S. Swanson Library Learning Center 
  • University Dining Service 

How much Campus Cash will I need? 

With many locations on campus accepting Campus Cash funds, most faculty/staff find they will need some amount of Campus Cash funds. We recommend that plan holders start with $150 of Campus Cash as it rolls over every semester and you can adjust it every semester. 

How do I check my Campus Cash balance? 

  • Balances can be checked online
  • Readers display balance after Dining Dollars transactions. 
  • Deposit Stations display balances upon request. Locations in Price Commons, Robert S. Swanson Library Learning Center, North Point Dining Center and Memorial Student Center.

BlockPlan meals are purchased in blocks of 100, 50, or 25 meals which can be used at the Fireside Café, Blue Devil Market, Harvey Express, and Jarvis Express retail locations also offer daily BlockPlan specials. 

Can I use my BlockPlan for guests?

BlockPlan meals can be used to pay for others as long as the owner of the BlockPlan is present with their Stout BlueCard for payment. You can use any number of meals in a day.

BlockPlan meals will carry forward from Fall semester to Spring semester. BlockPlan meals are forfeited at the completion of the Spring semester, so use them up! Our BlockPlan Choices chart above can help you determine the plan right for you.
