Using Your Points

Points can be used at any dining location on campus. Use the charts below to assist you in budgeting the points from your specific plan during the fall semester. The chart should be used as a guide only. 

Students can spend points at any rate they wish. Following the guide for your plan will help to ensure your points will last through the end of the semester. Email campuscard@brandeis.edu if you have any questions.

Block Meal Plans

Below is the suggested spending limit per week for students on block meal plans.

Carryover Points and How to Use Them

Carryover points are unused points from fall semester that automatically carry over to spring semester. If you have leftover points, you will see that amount in your "Carryover Plan." If you have a meal plan for spring semester, the points from your current plan will be depleted first, and then your carryover points will automatically be available. You do not need to take any action. 

There is no refund for unused points. In order to use your fall semester points, you must use all of your points from your spring meal plan. Meal plans are valid until noon the day after the last day of finals. At that time, all unused meals and points will be forfeited. Exceptions to this rule are only made for graduating seniors, whose meal plans will stay valid through Senior Week.
