Student Meal Plans

Meal Plan Options: 2023-24 Academic Year

UTSA Dining offers a variety of meal plans to suit your dining needs and lifestyle. When choosing a plan, we offer two main types: Roadrunner plans and Rowdy plans.

Roadrunner plans offer unlimited entry into the Roadrunner Café Monday-Sunday or Monday-Friday, depending on your choice of plan—you can eat as many meals as you like or just visit to grab a beverage or snack. These plans are comprehensive and are a great option for any student, especially on-campus housing residents.

Rowdy plans offer a set amount of meals each semester. These plans are flexible and give you a choice of the number of Roadrunner Café meals that suits your on-campus lifestyle. The Rowdy 150 plan also allows you to have up to 5 meal trades a week at any dining venue. Rowdy plans are an excellent choice for students who live off campus.

Meal Swipes

Each meal swipe is equivalent to one all-you-care-to-eat meal at Roadrunner Café.

To use: Visit the Roadrunner Café and swipe your UTSACard with the cashier. This swipe grants entry to the cafe, where you can enjoy an all-you-care-to-eat meal.

  Meal Trades Image

Meal Trades

Each meal trade can be redeemed for up to $7.65 at any retail UTSA Dining location. Used in lieu of one meal at Roadrunner Café

To use: Visit any on-campus dining location and let the cashier know you're using a meal trade before swiping your UTSACard. You can use a meal trade once per meal period. If your meal’s value exceeds $7.65, you can pay the difference using Dining Dollars or a credit card.

Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars can be redeemed at Roadrunner Café or any on-campus dining location. With Dining Dollars, your UTSACard operates like a debit card.

To use: Visit any on-campus dining location and let the cashier know you're using Dining Dollars before swiping your UTSACard. Unused Dining Dollars from the fall semester roll over into the spring semester. Need more Dining Dollars? Reload on myUTSA Account or through the GET app.

In lieu of a meal at the Roadrunner Café, meal plan holders may opt to use a meal trade to eat at one of the many dining locations on campus. Meal trades are redeemed at UTSA dining locations for a value up to $7.65. Any charges over this amount can be paid with Dining Dollars or credit card. Meal trades can be used once per designated meal period.

Use of a meal trade negates use of a meal at the Roadrunner Café until the next meal period and vice versa. Meal trades reset each Monday and do not roll over to the next week. Any meal trades not used by midnight on Sunday are forfeited.
