Please Note

Effective Saturday, March 21, 2020, Ball State University Dining Services has now moved to a completely to-go operation at every location.

Some of our Dining locations remain open, but purchases are packaged and for carry-out only, as all seating areas throughout Dining locations across campus are effectively closed.

We appreciate your understanding and patience.

Stay up-to-date with modified services, find answers to frequently asked questions, and learn more:

Dining's Response to COVID-19


Whether you're an early riser or a night owl, you'll find delicious meals that fit your schedule in Ball State's 11 dining locations. We welcome students, employees, and the community in all locations.

You'll find two types of dining experiences at Ball State:

  • a la carte – Items are priced individually. If you have a meal plan, you'll have a set amount of money to spend at each meal
  • all-you-care-to-eat – Swipe your meal card when you arrive or pay one set price and enjoy as much food as you'd like in a buffet-style setting.

Dining accepts meal cards, Dining Plus, Dining Cash, Cardinal Cash, credit cards, Apple/Android pay, and cash.
