How Your Meal Plan Works
Use your Lehigh University ID card at specific Dining Services locations to access your meal plan. There are three components to your meal plan to provide the maximum in flexibility and convenience:

  • Meal - All You Can Eat is available in three areas: University Center Cort Dining Room, Rathbone Dining Room, and Brodhead Dining Room. (Brodhead Dining Room is available to residents and guests only). All three locations offer All You Can Eat during each meal period. All Plans are designed for one meal swipe by the plan holder per visit. However, Carte Blanche and Block Plans will allow for multiple visits during the same meal period. Meal period is breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
  • Meals To-Go - Your student has the convenient option to get their meal to-go if they are in a hurry. They can take part in Dining Services new Eco-Takeout program simply by requesting to do so at any of the following student restaurants: The Cort at Lower U.C., and Rathbone. To learn more about our Eco-Takeout program, please visit our Sustainability page.
  • Dining Dollars - This declining balance account can be used exclusively at all Lehigh University Dining locations. Dining Dollars are non refundable, nontransferable, and will carry over from Fall semester to Spring semester only. (This is the only option in a Category V plan.)
  • Cash Equivalency - An option based on using a food value credit from unused Student Restaurant meals in designated Retail Locations on Campus. Some restrictions may apply depending on meal plan selection.
  • Cash Equivalency Periods
    Breakfast.......................7:00 a.m. - 10:29 a.m.
    Lunch............................10:30 a.m. - 4:29 p.m.
    Dinner...........................4:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
    • Please not that this does not mean every location is open during these hours.
    • Cash Equiv may only be used at Hawk's Nest and Common Grounds on the Carte Blanche meal plan.
