In an effort to be more sustainable, we offer a plastic reusable to-go box for those guests who have a Core, Campus, Premier, or Swipe Meal Plan and wish to take their meal from the dining halls to eat on the go or to take back to their dorms. These boxes may be purchased with a one-time fee of $6.50 using Cat's Cache, Dining Dollars, or a credit card. When a guest returns for their next Meal to Go, they can return the used to-go box and receive a clean one for NO charge or receive a green “exchange loop” to be used to claim a new box at a later time.
The reusable to-go box is also available at Union Court, where you will receive a 25¢ discount on your meal and you can also choose the reusable to-go box as an option when ordering on Grubhub.
By using reusable containers, you will join others in the effort to reduce waste on our campus.
Meals To Go FAQ
Do I have to purchase a to-go box?
It is a $6.50 one-time purchase for the reusable container. Every time you return to any one of our dining halls, you can exchange your used container for a clean one or an exchange loop good for a to-go box at a later time. It is that easy.
Where can the to-go boxes be used?
Holloway Commons, Philbrook Hall, Union Court, and the Dairy Bar.
How many to-go boxes can each person have?
While there is no limit as to how many containers you may have, be aware that you will need to pay $6.50 for each one. We encourage you to only keep one container at a time.
Do I have to wash my to-go box?
We handle the washing of all containers in our dishwashing facilities to ensure their proper sanitation. Participants can give their reusable to-go box to the dining hall cashier in return for a clean to-go box. We do ask that you please bring the container back as clean as possible.
What happens if I forget my to-go box in my dorm room?
You will have two options if you forget your to-go Box. One, you can pay the $6.50 for another reusable to-go box or you can return to your room and bring the used container and receive a clean one at no charge.
