*Students are only able to add Dining Dollars up to three times per term.  

Does your Pitt Eats meal membership include a Meal Exchange option? It likely does, and we want to make sure you are making the most of this feature!

Meal Exchange allows you to use a meal swipe at any on-campus location for a predetermined offering (no substitutions are allowed).

Look for our Meal Exchange icon on menu boards at locations to see what options are available or click here to see Meal Exchange offerings across campus. Let the cashier know you are using a Meal Exchange before you swipe!


How it works with your plan:

  • Meal Exchanges are limited to one per day (except the Foodie Membership, which allows for two).
  • If you would like to use your Membership more than once per day at an on-campus retail location, you can use your Dining Dollars or Flex Passes for any subsequent purchases.
  • For Lifestyle Memberships (Foodie, Eat On The Run, Panther On The Go), Meal Exchange is not in addition to available meals per day but can be used in place of eating at residential dining halls.

You either use your Meal Exchange daily or lose it – this feature doesn’t accumulate.

You can now order your favorite meals straight from your phone! Download the Transact Mobile Ordering app and skip the lines at all your favorite campus restaurant locations!
