MDining Meal Plans offer choice, flexibility to Wolverines on the move

MDining meal plans give busy Wolverines access to seven residential dining halls across campus, where healthy, nutritious options are always on the menu. 

Plus, each plan also comes with at least $25 in Dining Dollars each semester, which can be used just like cash at more than two dozen locations across campus, including pantries, cafés, and markets located in libraries, Palmer Commons, and University Unions buildings. 


If your student runs out of Dining Dollars, they can upgrade their meal plan at any time or supplement it with Blue Bucks

Parents, guardians, or others can also instantly add Blue Bucks to a student’s account at any time (a handy feature when a student is running low on cash) by visiting GET.
