Dining Plan Frequently Asked Questions

Dining across campus is just a swipe away! When you filled out your housing contract, you would have selected your meal plan so when you arrive on campus your Duquesne Student ID will be preloaded with the meal plan that you selected. If you did not select a meal plan prior to arriving, you will automatically be enrolled into the Gold Plan. You can change your plan within the first two weeks of each semester in the DU Card Office. If you are experiencing any problems with the meal plan or FLEX portion of your Student ID when you arrive, please contact the Dining Services Office or visit us in the Duquesne Student Union - Suite 333.
