Dining Plan Options

NEW! 2015-16 Dining Plans

Students living with UHDS can use their dining dollars at any of the more than 15 restaurants, cafés and stores operated by UHDS. Dining Dollars are added to your OSU ID Card at the beginning of each term. Present your OSU ID card to the cashier to pay for your food. It's like using a debit card. UHDS Dining Dollars are flexible, allowing you to pay for what you choose to eat, when you choose to eat it.
