Dining Options

We asked what you wanted from campus dining. Now you have it!

Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars are accepted at all dining locations throughout the campus. Similar to Lion Dollars, Dining Dollars can be managed through the Student Portal. A Dining Dollars benefit is paying no sales tax on purchases. It’s like a built-in discount on every purchase!

You can use Dining Dollars for a variety of things:

  • Adding dessert to a meal combo at Chick-fil-A in Spellmann Center Dining Hall.
  • Grabbing some toothpaste at Lion's Pride Market at 10:00 p.m. when you realize you’re out.
  • Grabbing a coffee at Lion's Pride Market before your 8:00 a.m. class.
  • Paying for a guest to join you at Evans Dining Hall while you use a meal from your block meal plan.

Meal Plans

Resident Meal Plans

  • Traditional 19 (required for athletes & freshman): 19 meals per week + $50 Dining Dollars
  • Flexible Value: 140 Block Meals + $150 Dining Dollars
  • Most Flexible Value: 100 Block Meals + $350 Dining Dollars

Commuter Meal Plans

  • Commuter 50: 50 Meals + $50 Dining Dollars per semester (Cost: $425)
  • Commuter 25: 25 Meals + $50 Dining Dollars per semester (Cost: $250)

Because we know your favorite study partner is Starbucks coffee, Lindenwood University commuter students will receive $50 Dining Dollars to spend at on-campus food and beverage outlets, starting in the fall 2019 semester! In addition to Starbucks, you can enjoy a delicious Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich, a Qdoba burrito, or items from the Lion’s Pride Market. The $50 will be charged to your student account.

Any unused Dining Dollars at the end of the semester will not roll over to subsequent semesters and will be forfeited by the student. If you have any questions about the commuter student dining dollar update, please email
