Roaring Return

Lindenwood Dining

Lindenwood Dining is working closely with the university to ensure all students, faculty and staff receive the best service and food while providing mobile and contact-free ordering options.

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 a coffee in Harmon Hall 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 freshman): 19 meals per week + $50 Dining Dollars

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! In addition to Starbucks, you can enjoy a delicious Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich or a QDOBA burrito. 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
