By using reusable containers, participants will join others in the effort to reduce waste on our campus. Last year, we saved over 150,000 containers from ending up in the landfill.
Participation is FREE to all meal plan and declining balance customers. All participating customers must have a valid UB Card to check containers in and out. All containers must be returned by the end of the spring semester ($5 fee for each container not returned).
For meal plan and declining balance customers, all you have to do is ask your cashier for a reusable to-go container and the computer will recognize you the first time you check a container out.
Reusable to-go containers can be used at both Governors and Goodyear dining centers.
Participants can have one (1) container checked out under their name at any given time.
UB Dining Plans may be charged to your UB Student Account (subject to terms of the Office of Student Accounts). You may also pay with cash, check or credit card. Purchases may be made in person at the UB Card Office, or through Meal Plan Select at various times throughout the semester.
The meals included in your plan are for your consumption only. Our Any 19, Any 14 and Block Meal Plans each contain guest meal passes for you to bring a friend or family member to the dining hall. If you do not have guest meals Campus Cash can both be used to purchase an extra meal at the dining halls if you wish to take a guest with you.
Dining centers have various closing hours up to 8:30 p.m. each night. You can also use a meal exchange at many locations along the Spine and Ellicott. You may also use meal exchanges late night at several locations. A full list is available at Dining Locations.
