HOW TO USE MY MEAL PLAN

What is the difference between Board Swipes and Meal Equivalency Swipes? Where can I use my Meal Plan swipes?
We’ve got you covered with tons of options to satisfy any craving - wherever and whenever it hits you on campus.

BOARD SWIPES
The Board Swipe function of your Meal Plan gives you access to both of our dining halls, including the Esposito Dining Center located inside Johnson & Hardwick (J&H) Hall and Morgan Dining Hall.

MEAL EQUIVALENCIES
This function of the Meal Plan allows your student the option to choose a convenient meal in one of our retail locations like Chick-Fil-A, Panda Express, Cosi, Saladworks, Bento Sushi, and more. Each Meal Plan includes a certain number of equivalencies that can be used weekly or per semester, depending on the plan purchased. The meal equivalency gives a cash value towards each purchase. The breakfast equivalency rate is $6.71. The lunch and dinner equivalency rates are $9.25. Meal Equivalencies may be used in both dining halls where you can use a board swipe, and meal equivalencies can be used at the additional dining locations in the Student Center Food Court and Morgan Food Court.

DIAMOND DOLLARS
The Diamond Dollars program is Temple's campus-based debit card solution that eliminates the need to carry cash.  Everyone who has a Temple University OWLcard, has a Diamond Dollars account. Depending on your Meal Plan, you may have Diamond Dollars added to your account that can be used for things like covering a balance when you spend more than the meal equivalency rate at one of our retail locations. For example, if you’re using your Meal Plan and decide to order lunch at Saladworks in the Student Center and your order totals $9.75, the meal equivalency rate ($9.25) will be deducted, so your balance is now $0.50 and can be covered by asking the Cashier to use your Diamond Dollars. Additional Diamond Dollars can be added by visiting Temple’s Diamond Dollars website.  

AM I REQUIRED TO HAVE A MEAL PLAN?
If you are a first year student living in on-campus housing, or a transfer student residing on-campus, you are required to purchase a minimum Meal Plan of 10 Meals Per Week.
