Your Meal Plan is all on your BEARcard! Depending on which plan you've chosen or been assigned, your Meal Plan will come with either Meal Swipes, Dining Dollars, or both! 

Meal Swipes can be used at Rawlings Café, our campus dining hall, and will expire either weekly (Silver Plan) or at the end of the semester. 

Dining Dollars can be used at all on-campus Morgan State Dining locations including Rawlings, the Micro Markets, Student Center Food Court, and Concessions. Dining Dollars expire at the end of the semester. If you would like to add more Dining Dollars to your BEARcard, visit us in the BEARcard Center to put in your request!

Students residing in on-campus housing are required to signup for a Meal Plan, and will be automatically assigned the Silver Plan. Students residing in Thurgood Marshall are required to sign up for either the Silver Plan or the $1,000 Dining Dollar Plan.  

As a residential campus, our goal is for students to experience all that Morgan State has to offer and engage in socialization in dining locations–an important part of the college experience! Dining together fosters community and having a Meal Plan makes eating convenient by saving time and offering an abundance of nutritious options.

Meal Swipes are a type of fund that are used at our all-you-care-to-eat dining hall, Rawlings Café.

Dining Dollars are sales tax exempt funds that can be used at all Morgan State Dining locations including Rawlings, the Micro Markets, Student Center Food Court, and Concessions. These funds are conveniently located on your BEARcard, and are reloadable in increments of $50 to students currently on a Meal Plan. Dining Dollars expire at the end of each semester.

Nutritional information for menu items, including common food allergens, is available on our app Bite by Sodexo, as well as listed on all menu identifiers in Rawlings. Mindful dishes, geared towards more mindful eating, are also available in Rawlings. These options are lower in sodium, saturated fat, and calories.

If you follow a religious diet, rest assured that you'll find plenty of options at Morgan State University! Halal meats are available in the Student Center Food Court at the Halal Shack, as well as Baba's Pizza. For students observing Ramadan, we offer a takeout option in Rawlings Café for students to grab some food to enjoy for Iftar.

Morgan State offers a variety of clearly labeled vegan and vegetarian options at multiple dining stations. Rawlings has a dedicated vegan or plant-based station that offers hot vegan dishes every day. Feel free to ask our team about finding vegan options in Rawlings! The Student Center Food Court is home to additional vegan options from the Halal Shack, Baba's Pizza, Craft It, and Farmer's Field.
