UNH Dining offers a Meal Exchange program for meal plan holders and Faculty/Staff meal plan holders that lets you purchase food at Café Central in the Whittemore Center ($8.50 credit per meal)  Monday through Friday from 11:00 am - 8:00 pm (some restrictions may apply).  There is no cash value, and no cash back. A valid UNH ID is also required.

For purchases that exceed $8.50, the balance will need to be paid for with another fund method; such as an additional swipe, cash, Cat's Cache, dining dollars or credit card. 

For Premier, Campus and Core Plans:

These plans are restricted to the Meal Exchange amounts of 32 for the Premier Plan, 16 for the Campus Plan, and 6 for the Core Plan. Meal Exchanges end when the total number has been reached or when the semester comes to an end. 

For Swipe meal plan holders:

A meal will be deducted from your plan balance each time you use the Meal Exchange until all meals have been used, or until the last day of service in May.
