What is a Meal Plan?

A Meal Plan unlocks delicious meals, coffee, snacks, and more, at 30+ locations across campus. Your Meal Plan includes Meal Swipes and Flex Dollars, conveniently loaded onto your UK WildCard ID. No need to carry additional cards or cash!


Meal Swipes

Meal Swipes give you access to both of our all-you-care-to-eat dining halls, Champions Kitchen and Fresh Food Company.

Weekly Meal Plans:
Meal Swipes do not roll over and expire at the end of each week on Saturday night. 

Block Meal Plans:
Meal Swipes expire at the end of each semester.


Flex Dollars

Flex Dollars may be used at any of the dining locations on campus. Visit our locations page for location information, including all-you-care-to-eat dining hall menus and hours of operation. Unused Flex Dollars will roll over from the Fall semester to the Spring semester, if you have an active Spring plan. All unused Flex Dollars expire on the last day of the Spring semester.
