What's New & Happening

Dinner Meal Swipes Opportunity

All meal plan holders who do not use their dinner meal swipe(s) during the scheduled dinner meal period (4:30–8:30 p.m.) will be able to use their swipe(s) until midnight/1 a.m. at any Dining Services location open until that time. This means dinner meal swipe(s) can be used at Husker Heroes at Abel until midnight and in any Herbie’s Market, most of which close at 1 a.m. Regular lockout procedures still apply.

Learn About the New NEBRASKA Experience

Residence Life staff have developed a new approach to co-curricular learning that we’re calling the Nebraska Experience. The Nebraska Experience will intentionally guide programming in the residence halls to give student residents meaningful learning experiences in five key areas. Find out more here.

C-Stores Cash Equivalency for Meal Plan Swipes

Cather C-Store will be the first to offer a cash equivalency for a meal plan swipe. From 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., students with meal plans can purchase food items up to $8 at the Cather C-Store that will be equal to one meal plan swipe. Pay with cash, credit/debit, or NCard for the difference over $8. There is no change for transactions under $8. After 8:30 p.m., all sales are cash, credit/debit card or NCard.

If the soft roll out is successful at Cather, all C-Stores will begin offering the option the following week. Contact Dining Services at 402-472-3561, or the C-Store manager with any questions.
