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

Just set up your account and deposit funds. Your Gold Cash account acts like a debit account. To make a purchase, use your Mizzou ID card. Dining charges are deducted from your account when you make a purchase.

As a Gold Cash member, you have access to:

  • All 29 Campus Dining Services locations*, which includes Mizzou Markets
  • $8 meals at all-you-care-to-eat locations (with beverages) vs. $11 door rate for lunch or dinner
  • 20 percent off all purchases at retail locations, residential a-la-carte and your Sabai lunch went from $6.50 to $5.20
  • 10 percent off all purchases at campus Starbucks (your morning latte at Starbucks went from $5.34 to $4.81), Subway and Mizzou Market locations

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