Munch Money is part of freshmen/first-year meal plans and acts as a declining balance stored on your Buff OneCard. It can be used at any of the Housing & Dining Services' retail outlets or to swipe in a friend at a dining center.
Munch Money does not carry over from one semester to the next and is nonrefundable. When you run out of Munch Money, you can't purchase additional Munch Money, but you can add Campus Cash, which works in retail and dining center operations.
