Auburn University Dining Services


On-Campus Dining Plan

Basic Plan: $995 in Declining Balance per semester (Fall and Spring)*

(This should cover about half your semester's food budget)

Off -Campus Dining Plans

Basic Plan: $300 in Declining Balance per semester (Fall and Spring)*

*The appropriate plan will appear on your student bill.

How it Works

All students participate in either the university’s $995 or $300 plan, depending upon whether they live on or off campus. Declining Balance Dollars are accessed using your Tiger Card and may be used at any on-campus dining location, including all the Tiger Traxx food trucks.  It works like a debit card, and your balance appears on your receipt after each purchase.  Unused Declining Balance Dollars roll from fall to spring and spring to summer and expires at the end of the summer term.

Optional Dining Account

Additional Dining funds may be added to an Optional Dining Account online or in the TigerCard office.  These declining balance funds, in excess of the dining plan, never expire.  They roll from semester to semester and can be refunded should the student not enroll for subsequent semesters or graduate.  Visit for additional information on the dining program.

Benefits of Your Dining Plan

  • Never worry about carrying cash – your TigerCard manages your dining options
  • Easily manage your funds with the GET program
  • Fresh, quality meals at convenient on-campus locations
  • Socialize with friends and stay on campus to eat

Bonus Dollar Promotion

You can earn $10 more purchasing power for each $100 deposited into your Optional Dining Account. For example, if you add $240 to your optional dining account, $20 will be placed in an Extra Optional Dining Account that is accessible once all your Basic and Optional dining funds have been exhausted. While all Optional dining funds are refundable, bonus dollars are nonrefundable, and may only be used on campus.
