Dining Dollars work as a separate debit account that you access through your Lehigh ID and can use to buy items or meals at any Lehigh Dining Services location.

The amount of Dining Dollars deposited into your account roll over from fall to spring semester. Any unused funds in your account at the end of spring semester are forfeited. You may add Dining Dollars to your account by visiting the University Center, calling (610) 758-6179 or by accessing your Lehigh portal. To add Dining Dollars through your portal, navigate to Banner, Student Service, additional Dining Dollars.

Through the Dining Dollars Rewards Program, you can receive a 20% bonus when you add additional Dining Dollars to your meal plan before the end of the 10th day of classes each semester! A 10% bonus applies after the 10th day as long as you remain on the plan.
