M Dining To-Go Program

Take your meal "to go" with the M Dining To-Go Program! 

How does it work?

  • Bring your M Dining To-Go Container to Dining Hall
    • First year residential students are provided a complimentary To-Go box in the fall. Check your mailbox for your voucher when you move in.
    • Non-first year residential students, faculty and staff may also participate in the To-Go program by purchasing a container for $4.00. This fee is non-refundable and covers the cost of the container.
  • Swipe your U Card for a meal
    • One swipe = one meal, whether you are dining in or taking your meal "to go"
    • If you choose to dine in AND take items "to go", then you will need to swipe twice. 
  • Fill your container! The lid must be able to close. 
  • Please rinse your To-Go container before your next visit
  • After returning, you have two options:
    • Take another clean To-Go Container
    • Take a carabiner to exchange for another reusable To-Go container when you’re ready to carry out again! The carabiner holds your spot in the program.
  • If you misplace your To-Go container or carabiner, you can purchase another for $4.

Why To-Go?

It's Flexible! For students with not a lot of time between classes, the To-Go Program provides the flexibility to enjoy a meal on the run or from anywhere on campus.

It's Convenient! Let us take care of the cooking and cleaning - when you’re done, bring your rinsed out To-Go Container to the dining hall and we’ll replace it with a clean, sanitized container.

It's Sustainable! Ditch the styrofoam containers and stick to our BPA-free, dishwasher-safe To-Go Containers! Not only are they reusable, they’re recyclable (#5) and even microwave-safe.
