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.

First year/Freshman students living in a Drexel Residence Hall are required to purchase one of the two weekly plans for the Fall 2018, Winter 2019, and Spring 2019 terms. Sophomore students and above have the option to sign-up for the desired plan that best fits their needs.

You have until the end of the second week of the term to change your dining plan. After the first two weeks you may still upgrade and add Dining Dollars to your dining plan.

Meals swipes are the backbone of your dining plan and are accepted at the all-you-care-to-eat Handschumacher Dining Center (Creese Student Center). Meals Swipes can also be exchanged at The Cafe @ PCJL or Urban Eatery (34th & Lancaster) dining platforms: Downtown Grounds, Downtown Grounds Smoothies, Greene St., Vespa, Ignite, U.C. Veg 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 the Handschumacher Dining Center (Creese Student Center), Urban Eatery (34th & Lancaster), Starbucks (Gerri C. LeBow Hall), ThirtyOne41 (Main Building), The Cafe @ PCJL and Northside Dining Terrace featuring Chick-fil-A, Subway, Sushi and The Market (34th & Race).

Meal exchange allows a meal swipe to be exchanged for a complete meal combination at The Cafe @ PCJL or Urban Eatery (34th & Lancaster) dining platforms. Meal Exchange options are listed on each locations menu board.

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.
