Our Dining Plans were designed with you in mind. If you are looking to enjoy a meal with friends or just a snack on the go – we’ve got a plan to fit every appetite. 

We’ve kept what’s most important to you in mind, building in the convenience, flexibility, quality, value and healthy options you deserve. Explore our meal plan options to learn more about what would be the best fit for you.

As a reminder, First-Year students living in a Drexel Residence Hall are required to purchase one of the three First-Year Dining Plans for the Fall 2019, Winter 2020, and Spring 2020 terms. All other students interested in registering for a Dining Plan may choose from any Voluntary Dining Plan option or First-Year Dining Plan option – whatever works best for them! 

You may change your Dining Plan selection (First-Year students must elect one of the three First-Year Dining Plans) during the first two weeks of each term (by October 4, 2019 for the fall term for example).

Meals swipes, also known as meal exchanges, are the backbone of your dining plan and are accepted at the all-you-care-to-eat Handschumacher Dining Center (Creese Student Center) , The Café @ Perelman Center for Jewish Life and at Urban Eatery (34th & Lancaster) featuring the following platforms: Downtown Grounds and Smoothie Bar, Greene St., Vespa, U.C. Veg, Ignite and Street Fare.

Dining Dollars supplement meal swipes and are included with each dining plan. They work just like a debit card. Dining Dollars can be used for purchases at all Drexel Campus Dining locations including Northside Dining Terrace (featuring Chick-fil-A, Subway, Sushi & Hot Bowls, and The Market), ThirtyOne41 and Starbucks (at Gerri C. LeBow Hall). 

Don’t worry - simplicity and convenience are all within reach. Once you have a dining plan, your DragonCard works like a debit card. Just swipe your card and the meals and points are deducted from your dining plan account.
