Dining Dollars vs. Rambler Bucks
Dining Dollars are funds associated with select meal plans. Dining Dollars are fixed amounts determined by the meal plan options for a given academic year, and they cannot be reloaded.
Dining Dollars can be used at any time in any on-campus dining location, including the Food Court, Coffee Shops/Cafes, and Residential Dining Halls.
Unlike with meal swipes, unused Dining Dollars can carry over from Fall to Spring semesters. However, all Dining Dollar funds expire annually in May.
For a complete list of all Dining Dollar meal plan options, please visit our Meal Plans page.
Rambler Bucks are Loyola's universal tender accepted at several on- and off-campus locations. Rambler Bucks offer a convenient method of paying for goods and services not limited to campus dining.
Unlike Dining Dollars, Rambler Bucks are reloadable and must be added to a campus card manually. For a complete list of methods to add Rambler Bucks, please visit our Adding Rambler Bucks page.
Rambler Bucks do not expire; they will remain on a student or staff member's card until they leave the university. Rambler Bucks are refundable with a $25.00 processing fee on all refund requests. For more information, please review our Rambler Bucks Policies.
