Meal Plans

University of Miami meal plans provide:

  • Convenience: Meal plans provide you the convenience of not having to worry about cooking, shopping for groceries or allotting a certain amount of money for food each week. They are easily accessible via your 'Cane Card.
  • Variety and flexibility: Meal plans are designed to meet your needs, there are many places to eat on campus to include national, regional, and local brands. Use your Dining Dollars to compliment your meal swipes when you're in the mood for a change.
  • Options for students with dietary needs: Vegetarian, vegan, food allergies and sensitivities, and healthy options are available in the dining halls and at many of the retail locations. Visit the "Know Your Food" section on Dine on Campus for the different icons we use to identify our menu offerings or schedule a time to meet with our Registered Dietitian for nutrition counseling.
