Convenience. Flexibility. Good Food.
There are many advantages of purchasing a dining plan because you will get the added convenience, value and flexibility of being part of the campus dining community.
The dining program at Carnegie Mellon is unique. There aren’t one or two dining halls where you have to eat but rather 20 locations representing over 30 concepts and menu options. Students are able to explore different tastes and interests through our diverse dining program.
Students can find a dining location close to their classroom or in their residential neighborhood. Hours vary based on the location but you are sure to find something to eat on campus at all times throughout the day.
Our meal plans allow you the value of a traditional dining program with the convenience and variety that you find on our campus. Purchasing a meal plan enables you to control your costs while enjoying great food. In addition, the DineXtra plan gives you the extra bonus of 1% for every $100 you deposit into your DineXtra account, up to 10%.
Of course we have the normal college fare of chicken fingers and fries, but we really try to encourage students to choose options that are healthy and nutritious. Our menus offer a wide variety of freshly prepared foods that taste great and are good for you.
Locally grown food, local businesses, recycling, composting, fair trade and campus education are all the things that we have incorporated into our dining program. We are continually looking for ways that we can save energy, purchase responsibly and give back to the environment in a meaningful way.
Our dining locations are great places to meet up with friends in the midst of your busy day. Many of our dining locations offer comfortable dining spaces to relax and enjoy your meal. Special events like theme nights, coffee house entertainment and trivia contests make eating with your friends an even more enjoyable dining experience.
