Summer Term 2014 Dining Plans

Fall Term 2014 - New Student Dining Plans

Fall Term 2014 - Returning Student Dining Plans

 

Introducing DBA Rollover

Starting with Summer Term 2014, up to 100 dollars of DBA can rollover to the next term within the same academic year.  DBA carried forward from a previous term will be available during the subsequent academic terms as an addition to the meal plan. Any amount of DBA carried forward will not alter any meal plan pricing or requirements. Any unspent DBA will expire with the end of spring term meal plans on Commencement Sunday.

DBA Rollover & Leave Terms: Any DBA rolled over from the previous term will be available anytime meal plans are active, including a leave term. Unused DBA from a leave term will continue to roll forward until the end of the academic year. All unused DBA expires on Commencement Sunday regardless of spring term enrollment.

For example: a student has $105 in DBA left at the end of summer term. $100 would rollover and be added to the DBA included with the fall term dining plan. The same student then ends fall term with $75 in DBA and is not taking classes or living on campus during winter term. This student would have $75 of DBA available during the leave term for visits to campus. If the student does not use any of the $75 during the winter term, that $75 would again rollover to the spring term meal plan. If that student had any DBA left at the end of spring term, it would expire on Commencement Sunday.

Components of the Meal Plans

Meal Swipes: Each meal swipe is designed to give you access for one meal at the Class of 1953 Commons, Dartmouth's all-you-care-to-eat dining hall.

Meal swipes can also be used in exchange for the daily special at Collis Café, Courtyard Café or Novack Café. The daily special is an inclusive meal including an entrée and beverage.

Meal Swipe Equivalency Exchange: Although the best value will be to use meal swipes at '53 Commons or for the daily special at one of the cafes, a meal swipe can be exchanged for a set value towards any purchase at Collis Café, Courtyard Café, Novack Café and the East Wheelock Snack Bar. The dollar equivalencies are $5.25 for breakfast, $7.75 for lunch, $10 for dinner, and $5.25 for late-night.

DBA (Declining Balance Account): Dining DBA is part of the meal plan designed to supplement the meals. DBA is accepted at Collis Café, Courtyard Café, Novack Café, the East Wheelock Snack Bar and the King Arthur Flour espresso bar. Although it is a better value to use a meal swipe, DBA can also purchase all-you-care-to-eat meal at '53 Commons.

Other Forms of Payment

DDS Charging: DDS Charging is an additional account available to students through which they can make purchases not covered by their dining plans. If the term's allotment of DBA is exceeded, DDS Charging can be used for any additional dining purchases.   This account also works at the Collis Market, the on-campus convenience store, which is not part of the dining plan.

The amount students owe to their DDS Charging accounts is applied to their college bills each month.

Dash Discretionary: DASH Discretionary is an all-purpose spending account that is part of the Dartmouth ID card. Students choose when, if, and how much to deposit into this account. DASH can be used to pay for a diverse range of services across campus, such as laundry, printing, vending machines, tickets and computer supplies. While this account is not part of the dining plans, it can be used at any DDS dining facility, at King Arthur Flour, and at Collis Market. Dining locations use meal plans by default, so if you would like to use DASH, please tell the cashier before the purchase.

Cash/Credit: Students as well as outside visitors can make cash purchases at any DDS dining facility, at King Arthur Flour and at Collis Market. Visa and MasterCard are currently accepted at '53 Commons, Novack Café, King Arthur Flour and Collis Market.
