KU Dining Services has worked with Human Resource Management on a new benefit for faculty and staff. Now you can sign up for a KU Dining plan through payroll deduction and save 15% on food and beverage services across campus.

Sign up for the $425 KU Dining Plan and conveniently pay through 10 payroll deductions of $42.50 each by filling out this form and submit to payroll@ku.edu, or drop off in the office Carruth O’Leary Room 145. You’ll get the full $425 to use in all KU Dining locations on campus, and save 15% on each purchase. Want the discount but need a smaller plan? You can sign up for a plan with cash or credit card by filling out this form and adding funds starting at just $25. Then, just add more money when your dining funds get low.

Whether you’re grabbing a coffee at the Roasterie or sitting down for lunch at Impromptu Café, use the KU Dining Plan to save 15%. 

Note: The $425 plan is on the KU Card so you must have your KU Card for any transactions. Access to some residential dining may be restricted and you’ll need to show your KU Card.
