UT Arlington offers dining options that are convenient and valuable to every student, whether they live on campus or commute. 

With three on-the-go meal plans, you can also enjoy all-you-care to eat dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You receive a set number of meals per semester based on the plan you select. When you eat at either the Connection of Maverick Cafe, 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 Plaza food court, Starbucks, The Market and other on-campus Dining services locations, in addition to UTA's cafes.

Please note that On-the-Go meal plan Dining Dollars do not roll over from semester to semester. Leftover Dining Dollars will be converted to Mav Money, the primary debit plan offered by UTA and accepted at all campus retail and dining, printing and various off-campus locations. 

If you run out of Dining Dollars, you can reload them on your card or add Mav Money to your card.
