Faculty and staff can now save up to $20* off the KU Dining Services ¨door rate¨ at our Residential Dining Centers and 10 percent at our retail cafés by signing up for the new Faculty/Staff KU Cuisine Meal Plan. The meal plan will be on your active KU Card and signing up couldn’t be easier. Faculty and staff are able to host university affiliated guests, so take a student or colleague to lunch!
KU Dining Services has created three distinct meal plan options for faculty and staff that are not only flexible and easy to sign up for, they’re extremely economical!
Choose just a KU Cuisine dining plan by itself for use in our Residential Dining Centers, go with a cash-only alternative or purchase our “hybrid” option that combines the best of both worlds. Any way you slice it, though, you end up saving money: by signing up for the Faculty/Staff Dining Plan, you may save $10-20 off the cash guest meal rates at our Residential Dining Centers and 10 percent off at our campus retail cafés.
To make it even easier for our faculty and staff customers, we’ve kept the new meal plans on the KU Card – after you sign up, that’s all you’ll need to access great food at a great price.
Interested in signing up? Purchasing a plan couldn’t be easier with our new online payment system via the KU Bookstores.

The KU Cuisine Dining Plan is on the KU Card. Faculty and staff must have their KU Card to access the dining centers.
The 10 dining center meals and any remaining balance of KU Cuisine Cash will roll over semester to semester as long as the KU Card is active (remain employed by KU).
The dining center meals can be used at Mrs. E’s, North College Cafe, and Oliver Dining. They may also be used for sack meals to go at The Studio, North College Cafe and Oliver Dining at specified times. See our Residential Dining hours of operation page for details.
KU Cuisine Cash may be used at any of our KU Dining locations. With 20+ of them campus-wide, you’re bound to find one right next door!
Meals can be used to host university affiliated guests, but only when the owner of the card is present.
