Dining Hall ID Card Policies

E. Dining Hall Information and Policies

  1. Dining hall meal service begins on the official opening day and ends on the last day of final examinations.
  2. Food served in the dining halls is available on an “all you care to eat” basis and cannot be taken out. Violation of the policy can result in a $25 fine and/or loss of dining privileges.
  3. Students are expected to conduct themselves in the dining halls in a manner conducive to quiet enjoyment of meal times by all. Cooperation with stated procedures such as the self-bussing of dishware is expected. Misuse of food is grounds for disciplinary action.
  4. Removal of dining hall property is prohibited.
  5. Lost Cards
    1. A charge of $25 is made to replace a lost, stolen or damaged photo ID card and $10 to replace a lost, stolen, or damaged non-photo dining card.
    2. Lost or stolen meal cards must be reported immediately to the Dining ID Office (603) 862-1821 or suspended instantly at www.unh.edu/dining. Only the balance of accounts on the card at the time the card is suspended can be protected. No temporary cards will be issued. Until your ID card is replaced, you will not have access to your Dining Dollars, guest passes or Cat’s Cache (the hand scanner eliminates the need to use your ID card for admission into the dining halls when you own one of the Anytime meal plans).
    3. Your University ID card is strictly nontransferable. The owner of ID card is responsible for its security and proper use and subject to a $25 fine for its unauthorized use.
  6. Guests may be brought into the dining hall by using a guest pass, Dining Dollars, Cat’s Cache, cash, Master Card, Visa, Discover or American Express.
  7. Dining Dollars
    1. Anyone may purchase Dining Dollars in any amount.
    2. Dining Dollars are accepted at Philbrook, Stillings, Holloway Commons, Union Court, Wildcatessen, Philbrook Café, Gables Con­venience Store, Dairy Bar, Zeke’s, Albert's, and Dunkin' Donuts (no discount).
    3. Dining Dollars are valid during the academic year of purchase only. A remaining balance from semester 1 will carry over to semester 2 but expires at the end of meal service in May. Unused Dining Dollars are non-refundable.
  8. Students with specific nutrition concerns or medically restricted diets should meet with the registered dietitian and executive chef to review options for dining hall accommodations. It is the responsibility of the stu­dent with food allergies or other specified nutrition concerns to make the final judgment on whether or not to question the ingredients of a food item or to choose to eat the foods selected.
