Dining Services

Dining Services at Cheyney University are designed to furnish the healthy and delicious dining choices students expect, along with the flexibility to meet their hectic schedule. We realize that dining is an important part of college life. Dining on campus should provide an opportunity to connect with friends, stay healthy and relax and refuel. From the quality of the food, to the comfort and convenience of the dining setting, our goal is to enhance each customized student dining experience. We are committed to constantly improving our offerings and services and staying on the cutting edge. There are two dining venues on campus – the Snack Bar in Marcus Foster and the larger, full-service cafeteria in Ada Georges.

Dining Flex Dollars & Meal Card

“Flex Dollars” are a major part of the dining services program. Students are able to use monies paid into their account through the meal plan of choice. The student identification card is used as a debit card at either dining location. Each time students use Flex Dollars to make purchases; the prices are subtracted from the balance on their accounts. Flex Dollars can be purchased in increments of $300, $250, $200, $150 with the purchase of the meal plan.

All Dining (Flex) Dollars will be added to the students’ accounts by the Bursars Office. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Bursar’s Office directly at (610) 399-2224 or Students are permitted to use their Flex Dollars whenever they like and as often as they like, as long as they maintain a sufficient cash balance for purchases. When Flex Dollars have been exhausted from the account, students may add increments of $25 or more to the account to maintain it throughout the semester. Unused Flex Dollars may be carried over from the fall to the spring semester. Unused monies, at the end of the spring semester, are forfeited to the university. Students matriculating through the university during the fall semester who do not return for the spring semester, or decide not to reside on campus or purchase a meal plan, forfeit any remaining monies on their Flex accounts.
