Meal Plans at Marymount

Our Meal Plans here at Marymount aim to provide all students with a plan that will best meet their needs for eating on campus. Check out some of the information about how our Meal Plans work, where they can be used, and what are the requirements and costs of having a meal plan at Marymount.


What are Meal Plans made of?

What is a meal plan swipe?

Meal swipes provide the greatest value and access to our MU all-you-care-to-eat meals at the Gerard Dining Hall.  Meal plan swipes expire at the end of each semester but, for block plans, 25% of the value of unused meal swipes are converted to Bernie Cash for use the following semester.

How does a meal exchange work?

Our new block plans are flexible by allowing you the opportunity to “exchange” a number of meal swipes for an equivalent meal at either Lola’s, Bernie’s, or the Ballston Café.

What are Bernie dollars?

Bernie Dollars replace Dining Dollars as a convenient, cashless way to make purchases using your Marymount ID card, both on campus and at many popular off-campus businesses, including GrubHub deliveries when using the Marymount app.  Like using a debit card, funds are deducted as purchases are made.  Bernie Dollars unspent at the end of a semester roll forward until the student is no longer enrolled at the University, at which point the balance may be used for MU branded merchandise in the Bookstore or may be donated to the Saint Swipes program. 

Meal plans consist of two very kinds of payment; a Meal Swipe and Dining Dollars. Both of these kinds of payments can be taken at multiple dining locations, but it is helpful to know how to get the best bang for your buck with this system!
