As a student living on campus at Oregon State University, you are required to have a dining plan. You can choose from one of four dining plans, which give you Dining Dollars to spend at any of the restaurants, cafes, and stores operated by UHDS.
The per term Dining Dollar amounts are billed to your OSU student account and added to your OSU ID Card at the beginning of each term. Dining Dollars are flexible; you may spend as much or as little each day as you wish.
As a campus resident, you never pay full price for food. Residents who use their dining plan dollars on purchases at dining center locations will receive a 20 percent discount. This includes restaurants in Marketplace West, McNary Dining Center, and Southside Station @ Arnold.
Residents who use their dining plans get a 10 percent discount at other UHDS locations and markets: Off the Quad in the Memorial Union, Bing’s Cafe at Weatherford, EBGBs at Marketplace West, Cascadia Market & Café at the International Living & Learning Center (ILLC) and Mainsqueeze and Raintree at McNary Dining Center.
If you do not spend all of your Dining Dollars during one academic year, Rollover Dining Plan funds will be automatically rolled over on your OSU ID card for the following year.
Residents can make changes to their dining plan by visiting MyUHDS. For the first three weeks of each term, you can select a larger or smaller plan. After the third week, you can adjust to a larger plan only.
Orange Cash is a separate account that allows you to receive a 10 percent Orange Rewards discount at additional food locations on campus, such as coffee shops in academic buildings and food locations not operated by UHDS. Anyone affiliated with OSU may have an Orange Cash account.
Students who are assigned to campus housing by the beginning of Fall Term are automatically enrolled in the Orange Cash program, with a one-time-only $100 deposit to their Orange Cash account. Orange Cash can be used at all dining locations across the OSU campus by presenting your OSU ID to the cashier.
