Apartment Dining Options
Dining at UT Arlington is convenient and valuable by choosing a meal plan best suited for your eating habits and schedule. With five meal plans to choose from, you can enjoy all-you-care-to-eat dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Connection Café. You receive a set number of meals per semester based on the plan you select. When you eat at the Connection Café, a meal is subtracted from your meal balance. In addition, each meal plan comes with a certain amount of Dining Dollars that can be used at the Connection Café, the Plaza food court, Starbucks, The Market and other on-campus Dining services locations. All students are eligible to sign up for a meal plan. We even offer a commuter plan specifically for our apartment residents.
Your meal plan is loaded on your Mav card. “Meal” swipes are used in the Connection Café, and Dining Dollars can be used at any of our locations. You may swipe in only once per meal period at the Connection Cafe (breakfast, continental breakfast, lunch midday meal and dinner), but you may swipe again to use Dining Dollars if you would like to treat a friend to a meal in the Connection Café. Dining Dollars are dollar to dollar, much like a debit system, and the balance will roll over from the fall to spring. Please note that Commuter Meal Plan Dining Dollars do not roll over from semester to semester.
If you run out of Dining Dollars, you can reload your card with Mav Money, which is also dollar to dollar, online through your MyMav account with a credit card or at the Bursars Office with credit card or cash. Our meal plan program is completely separate from the Mav Money system. Please inquire with the Mav Express Office for more information about this program.
Stop by the Housing Office in the E.H. Hereford University Center to sign up for a commuter meal plan.
LIVING ON CAMPUS
TWICE THE FUN
They say the friends you make in college are the friends you make for life. Get a jump-start by choosing to live with a roommate. With a roommate you don’t have to navigate college life on your own. You’ll have someone to eat dinner with, go on late night runs to the store, and someone who can share living costs. It’s a win-win decision: good for your wallet and perfect for a meaningful social connection.
