Where to use your Dining Dollars

A handy guide to on- and off-campus eating options for the fall semester

Construction of restaurants on the ground floor of Gallagher Student Center (GSC) is projected to continue through the 2018 fall semester.

In anticipation of increased traffic because of construction and the record breaking size of the class of 2022, Hoff Dining Commons will have communal style seating arranged during construction in GSC. More tables and chairs have been brought in.

Xavier Dining Services has arranged additional dining opportunities to increase food accessibility for students with meal plans with restaurants. Additionally, Dining Dollars from the 2018-19 school year will roll over to the 2019-20 school year.

On-campus dining options will continue to accept both Dining Dollars and X Cash as usual. University Station and other off-campus dining options that normally only accept X Cash will also accept Dining Dollars during construction. The University Station Starbucks will accept both Dining Dollars and X Cash indefinitely.
