Pay as you go. FlexDine works like a debit card - it's safe and convenient for all students, staff and faculty. FlexDine can be used at any residential restaurant or campus restaurant. There is no need to carry cash because your purchase is deducted from your account balance. PLEASE NOTE, beginning Fall 2008, FlexDine balances remaining on your U Card at the end of each semester will carry over to the following academic semester.

When using FlexDine in residential restaurants just present your U Card for entrance to the dining center. The greeter will swipe your card and the price of the meal will be deducted from your balance.

You can also use your FlexDine like a debit card at any campus restaurant. Simply present your U Card to the cashier so they may deduct the cost of your purchase from your FlexDine balance. FlexDine may be used at all University dining locations, except: Continuing Education and Conference Center (formerly Earle Brown Center) and West Bank Office Building Cafe.
