Meal Swipes

Meal Swipes give you access to our all-you-care-to-eat dining hall, the Main Cafe.


Declining Balance (DB)

DB may be used at any TSU Dining location. Visit our locations page for location information, including dining hall menus and hours of operation. DB rolls over from the Fall to the Spring semester, however, unused DB from the spring semester will not roll over.

Sign up for Auto Declining Balance Dollars Reload and have your balance automatically replenished with less stress! To get started ensure that your TSU Student ID is linked to your CampusDish Account and then sign up for Auto Declining Balance Dollars Reload. You can pause or adjust your reload settings at any time.


Meal Exchange

You may also exchange one meal swipe per meal period at select dining locations like our P.O.Ds or Rudolph Grille. See our dining brochure to view a full breakdown of where, what times, and what options are available for meal exchange.
