Using Your Plan

All dining plans use your student ID for payment. When you order or purchase food, the cashier swipes your ID, and your purchase is deducted from your balance.

Dining Plans for Off-Campus Students

You don’t need to live in university housing to enjoy the benefits of a CDS dining plan. Purchase a dining plan for off-campus students.

Supplement Your Plan

Tiger Cash

Tiger Cash is for any student who carries a student ID card and spends time on campus. The TigerCard Manager allows students to deposit funds 24/7 into a prepaid account that can be used at all Campus Dining Services locations, The Mizzou Store and MizzouRec locations.
