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 functions like a debit account for use at any Campus Dining Services location. Simply deposit money into your Gold Cash account and use your Mizzou ID card to make purchases. Your card works like a debit card, and the amount is deducted from your Gold Cash balance with each transaction. 

As a Gold Cash member, you have access to:

  • All 20 Campus Dining Services locations*, which includes Mizzou Markets
  • $9 meals at all-you-care-to-eat locations (with beverages).
  • 20 percent off all CDS retail-operated locations.
  • 10 percent off all purchases at campus Starbucks, Subway, Mizzou Markets and Emporium Cafe.

*Gold Cash is accepted at all non-Campus Dining locations i.e. Panda Express and Sunshine Sushi. No discounts apply at these locations.
