Faculty & Staff Meal Plans

We also offer a Faculty/Staff Meal Plan to current DU faculty and staff members. This meal plan can be used in Centennial Halls and Nelson dining halls.
The plan provides 10 all-you-can-eat meals for $59. You can purchase additional blocks of 10 meals for an additional $59 at any time.
To purchase the plan, just stop by the ID Office with payment, and your meals will be available for use immediately. Alternatively, you can deposit $59 to your Flex account online, and send us an email with your name and ID number, requesting to purchase a Faculty/Staff Meal Plan with your Flex account. We will notify you when the transaction is complete and your meals are available for use. More information on meal plans can be found here!

Important Info

Meal Plan Cash

The Meal Plan Cash included with each meal plan can be used in any of the dining locations on campus. One Meal Plan Cash dollar is equal to $1 in cash. Meal Plan Cash purchases are exempt from sales tax. Meal Plan Cash is a declining balance account. The amount attached to the meal plan selected is the balance at the beginning of the academic quarter; each purchase is deducted from that account. Meal Plan Cash expires at the end of each quarter and is non-refundable

Flex Dollars
Flex Dollars may be added to your Pioneer ID card at any time and be used at any dining location on campus.  When you use Flex Dollars at dining locations on campus, you will receive a 10% discount and you don’t pay sales tax – a savings of over 18%.  Flex Dollars roll over and can be refunded upon graduation or at the end of an academic year.  To add Flex Dollars to your card, please visit
