You can also check your current balance of Dining Dollar$ and swipes when you log-in to Campus Express Online and click on ‘My Dining’.
Students may purchase Dining Dollar$ online in any amount at Campus Express or by visiting the Penn Dining office.
When you present this card to the cashier at a dining location, your swipes or Dining Dollar$ will be deducted from your account.
Due to certain University closures during the year, dining locations are closed as well and therefore neither swipes nor Dining Dollar$ can be used.

Students have until June 20 to select a plan, if you have not signed-up by that date we will automatically assign freshmen to the Best Food Fit dining plan, our most popular plan.
We encourage students to "test-drive" their dining plans for at least a week after classes begin, before deciding to change plans.
If you would like to add visits or Dining Dollar$ to your current plan, you may do so at any time. They are funds on your Penn Card used to purchase items at any dining location.
Our dining plans were designed to provide maximum flexibility for students to enjoy our cafés.
In addition to offering a variety of dining options, our all-you-care-to-eat facilities help foster a sense of campus community by allowing students to dine together.
