Summer Special Group Dining

Included in the Room and Board Fees, each Summer Special Group participant is automatically given Dine In Dollars, which can be used to purchase meals at DHFS-run dining facilities. The amount of Dine In Dollars will vary depending on the session.

How Dine In Dollars Work

Dine In Dollars are loaded onto the participant's UT ID/access card. The UT ID/access card is swiped at the dining center to purchase meals. The Dine In Dollar amount used is deducted from their balance once it is swiped, much like a debit card. If a participant needs to add Dine In Dollars, more can be added by cash or check at the main DHFS office.


Dine in Dollars are accepted at DHFS-run dining locations, which are located throughout campus. There are two types of dining centers: buffet dining centers and a la carte dining centers. When eating in our all-you-care-to-eat dining centers and paying with Dine In Dollars, participants are charged the reduced residential price for meals. Pricing in the all-you-care-to-eat dining centers for Summer 2015:

  • Breakfast: $3.90
  • Lunch: $4.60
  • Dinner: $5.00
When eating in our a la carte dining centers, participants are charged for only what they are buying, along with a 10% discount on food or drink purchases when paying with Dine In Dollars.

Healthy Dining

The DHFS Dining Facilities offer many healthy options for on-campus dining. Weekly menus are always available, along with nutritional information and healthy suggestions. Should you have any questions about nutritional goals, allergies, or healthy eating, you may contact our registered dietician Lindsay (Gaydos) Wilson, MS. RD. LD.
