Did you know MDining has three convenient MDining to Go locations on the Ann Arbor campus? The “M-Dining To Go Express Meal Stations"  are an extension of the dining halls. Your student can choose from three different meals choices offered daily. 

Students with meal plans or Blue Bucks can use the Express Stations. The three locations are in: the Michigan Union, South Quad, and the Central Campus Recreational Building. A map for the site is here.

In addition, MDining has been re-adjusting its menus to include even more fresh vegetables, vegan and vegetarian options. Grilled chicken, pasta, pizza, mac & cheese, oatmeal and more have been added, with additional options coming soon.

To enhance your student’s MDining experience, staff suggest:

  • Don’t see something that’s for you or have a question? Ask a manager or chef in any location and fire away with questions. The Dining team appreciates student input.
  • For guests with special dietary requirements or specific religious preferences, make sure your student talks to a manager in a location or reaches out to one of the dieticians via to help them navigate MDining to maximize their experience. 
  • Use Dining Dollars or Blue Bucks at any Cafe or Market across campus. Find a convenient location here.  
  • Consider enjoying a meal at off-peak times. Stop by before 9 a.m. for breakfast and before noon or after 1:30 p.m. for lunch. For dinner try arriving before 5:45 p.m. or after 7 p.m.
