Apartment dining account

Student shoppers in District Market

We recognize your needs may differ from students who live in residence halls. That’s why we offer a special dining account for students who live in on-campus apartments.

The apartment dining account:

  • is optional
  • offers low cost options
  • provides you a 10% discount at District Market
  • can be used at all campus dining locations

How to sign up

You can choose your dining account level, the amount you want to spend each month, when you apply for housing.

Go to MyHFS homepage

How your dining account works

It’s easy to keep track of your balance—look for it displayed on the cash register when you make a purchase. You can also track your dining account balance online.

Many locations on campus do not accept cash, so if you think you may run out of dining money before the end of the quarter, you can add money to your Husky Card account.

Unused account balance

Your unused account balance rolls over from quarter to quarter until the end of your agreement period. Dining funds are nonrefundable and nontransferable. We recommend you monitor and adjust your dining account level each quarter to avoid having a balance left over at the end of the year.

Summer and Early Fall Start

If you are living on campus during Summer quarter or Early Fall Start you can find dining account information in the Early Fall Start Housing Application Guide and the Summer Housing Application Guide.

Select a dining account level

The average cost of a meal on campus is between $7–$11. We broke the levels out into daily budgets to help you decide what works for you.

As an apartment resident, you can select from any of these levels, including the Returning Resident (RR) level.

Quarterly payment $200 $400 $600
Daily budget (approx.) $9 $10 $11
Quarterly payment $1,005 $1,064 $1,208 $1,354 $1,498 $1,788 $2,381
Daily budget (approx.) $14 $15 $17 $19 $21 $24 $33

Make changes to your dining account

Selecting the right dining level to match your lifestyle isn’t an exact science. If you want to change your dining account level you can. You may change to a lower dining level for an upcoming quarter by making your request before these deadlines:

Autumn quarter by August 31, 2021
Winter quarter by November 30, 2021
Spring quarter by February 28, 2022

If you have any questions about your dining account, please contact us. We are happy to help!
