About Flex Swipes

We know that you are busy as a student. That's is why our team created flex swipes. Flex swipes offer you the ability to use a meal swipe at one of our eight (8) on-campus retail locations at any time or at market places once you have used all of your market place swipes. If you purchased the Black or Gold meal plan, you automatically have 75 Flex swipes included.

Please note: Flex swipes cannot be used as guest meals in the market places.

What's Included

A flex swipe allows you to choose one of the following options. 

  • One (1) Entree + Two (2) Sides + One (1) Drink
  • One (1) Burge, Catlett, Hillcrest Market Place meal

Flex swipe selections vary by location, but a flex meal in a retail location typically includes a sandwich, chips, fresh fruit, and a beverage. 

Please note: Students are limited to five (5) flex swipes per day.
