What is a Meal Plan?

A Meal Plan unlocks delicious meals, coffee, snacks, and more, at over 10 dining locations across the UNLV campus. Your Meal Plan includes Meal Swipes and Dining Dollars, conveniently loaded onto your RebelCard. No need to carry additional cards or cash!


Meal Swipes

Meal Swipes give you access to the Hazel M. Wilson Dining Commons, UNLV’s all-you-care-to-eat dining hall. The meals on a residential meal plan will expire at the end of each semester. The meals on a commuter meal plan will roll over from fall semester to spring semester and will expire at the end of the spring semester.


Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars are like a gift card for food on campus. They are attached to your RebelCard and may be used at any UNLV Dining location. Visit our locations page for location information, including dining hall menus and hours of operation. Dining Dollars will roll over from fall semester to spring semester, and expire at the end of the school year.
