Gold Cash

The Dining Choice for MU Faculty and Staff

We created Gold Cash as an added benefit exclusive to benefit-eligible MU faculty, staff and UM System employees. With a regular, minimum payroll deduction of $25 per month, you maximize your money at your favorite campus dining locations.

How Gold Cash Works

Gold Cash is just like a debit account that can be used at any Campus Dining Services location. Money is deposited into your Gold Cash account and you can make purchases by simply using your Mizzou ID card as a ‘debit card’ and your purchases are deducted from your Gold Cash balance. 

As a Gold Cash member, you have access to:

  • All 23 Campus Dining Services locations*, which includes Mizzou Markets
  • $8.25 meals at all-you-care-to-eat locations (with beverages).
  • 20 percent off all purchases at retail and residential a-la-carte locations.
  • 10 percent off all purchases at campus Starbucks, Subway and Mizzou Markets.

*Gold Cash is accepted at Panda Express and Sunshine Sushi but no discounts apply at this time. Campus Dining Services gift cards cannot be purchased with Gold Cash.
