OneCard Uses

Meal Plans

Checkout line

Housing and Dining Meal Plans are used by residence hall students to dine in the cafeterias. Weekly dollar amounts are deposited into the students' accounts at the beginning of each week, and students can spend the money by swiping their NIU OneCard ID's. Because of their convenience, meal plans are required for all residence hall students.

For more information, contact Housing and Dining at (815) 753-1525.




Note:  A Housing and Dining Meal Plan is not the same as a TCF Bank Account, neither is it the same as a Huskie Bucks Account. Although a student can have all three accounts accessed by the same OneCard ID, the monies stay separated. The student can specify at checkout how he would like to pay.
