Dining & Catering Services

The University of Chicago offers myriad meal options for your summer conference needs. Guests can find multiple dining options, including but not limited to:

Meal Plan

All-you-care-to-eat dining option for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a dining facility. The summer dining facility will be in the Bartlett Dining Commons

Maroon Dollars

In addition to requesting a meal plan, summer conference guests can purchase Maroon Dollars for use in the multiple cafés and shops on campus. Maroon Dollars allow guests to use their campus ID card like a debit card, swiping their card at a café’s register, and subtracting the dollar amount from their account. 

Maroon Dollars are accepted at any dining facility on campus that is opened for the summer – at the dining hall and at retail locations where á la carte meals are available.  

All unused Maroon Dollars expire at the end of your summer conference program. Maroon Dollars are non-refundable and non-transferable. Taxes apply to Maroon Dollar purchases.
