Meals and Meal Exchanges

When you use one of your meals in a Residential Dining Center (all-you-care-to-eat), one meal will be deducted from your weekly allotment. You then have access to the all-you-care-to-eat menu. If you use all of your meals before the end of the week, you may use your Dining Points to purchase a meal. The meal plan week resets every Saturday morning at 3am.

If you choose to use a meal at any UB Campus Dining & Shops restaurant, café or food court, that meal exchange has a dollar value assigned to it based on the meal period. That value will be credited towards your total purchase amount. Any remainder may be paid using your Dining Points. You can use up to two meals per meal period, however only one meal exchange may be used per transaction.

Meal period times are listed below. However, please check each location for availability and unit-specific times.
