Summer Meal Plans (Oxy Students)

During the summer, the Marketplace adopts an "All You Care To Eat" (AYCTE) operation model. This approach effectively caters to the diverse dining needs of both internal and external groups using the dining facility. With a single swipe of your card, the “AYCTE” system allows you to partake in a substantial meal and freely sample options from all available stations. However, all food and beverages must be enjoyed within the dining room as take-outs are not permitted.

The Summer Meal Plan:

This summer meal plan operates differently from the academic year meal plan. Each week, your account will be loaded with 14 meals, resetting every Sunday morning. Each visit to the Marketplace, or anytime food is provided elsewhere, your account will be deducted one meal. 

*Please note that only one meal can be used per meal period. Every week, a minimum of 16 up to a maximum of 21 meal periods are offered. Any meals remaining by the end of the day on Saturday will not roll over to the following week.

Most summer meal plans are valid Tuesday, May 28 through Saturday, August 3.
If you need to extend your meal plan for use after August 4, please contact Card Services

Packed Meals Off Campus: 

If you participate in a program which requires you to work off campus, packed meals may be available on a limited basis.  Your participation in a qualifying program must first be verified by Robert Starec in Campus Dining:  

Meal-to-go requests will be submitted by noon the day before using a Google Form. Late requests will not be processed. The pre-packed meals are collected from the Marketplace cashier. Meals will be available for pickup as early as the same-day dinner meal period, or they may be collected during breakfast the following morning. Meals will include a choice of sandwich, hot entree, or salad, beverage, whole fruit and packaged snack/cookie. Once approved, more detailed instructions will be provided.

Other Meal Plan Information:

  • During the summer, the College hosts conference groups with designated meal times, which may lead to queues at the facility.  We Kindly ask for your patience and respect for these guests.
  • Payment for guests can be made using Cash, Rollover, Bengal Bucks, Sponsored Plans, or Interdepartmental Charge. All guests must pay before entering the Marketplace.
  • To maintain a hygienic and organized dining environment, bringing outside food into the Marketplace is not permitted. All meals should be consumed within the dining room, and no food should be taken out of the Marketplace.
  • Always have your valid Oxy ID card with you to access your meal plan privileges. If your ID card is lost, stolen, or damaged, you will need to purchase a new one.
  • Any violation of these rules will result in a referral to the conduct system.

The Tiger Cooler Express

The Tiger Cooler Express (TCE) is the only “to go” dining option during summer operations, offering an a la carte alternative to "AYCTE" at the Marketplace.
(Offering Snacks, Drinks, Assorted Sandwiches, Hot Entrees and Salads)

Summer Hours: (Begin Tuesday May 28th)

Monday - Thursday 11am - 7pm
Friday's 11am - 2pm
Closed Weekends and Holidays

The Tiger Cooler Express accepts Cash, Rollover, Bengal Bucks, Sponsored Plans, or Interdepartmental Charge.

For those on summer meal plans, The Tiger Cooler Express will also offer a "meal equivalency" option for Lunch and Dinner. Unlike at the Marketplace, the meal equivalency will not provide unlimited food and beverages. During the respective meal period (lunch or dinner) a meal swipe will provide:

Example: Sandwich, Hot Entree, or  Salad, with Beverage, Fruit and Snack.

If you have any questions, please contact us at any time. Have a great summer!
