Dining Dollars Explained

What are Dining Dollars?

Dining dollars are preloaded on our Crimson Flex, Blue Flex, Rock Chalk All Access, and 425 plans on your KU card. Dining dollars spend dollar for dollar at any of our retail locations, and they are great when you need a Starbucks coffee between classes. They also work at residential halls - you’ll just pay the discounted flat rate. Dining dollars can be added to any plan if you run short! Why are dining dollars better than cash or using your credit card at KU Dining locations? You save 15% on every purchase when you use your dining dollars.
