All students living in a Butler University residence hall are enrolled in a Resident Dining Plan. Students have the option of enrolling in either of the Resident Dining Plans offered each semester. The Resident Dining Plans include Meal Swipes as well as Flex Dollars that can be utilized at retail locations. A meal or card swipe ("swipe") is an all-you-care-to-eat (AYCTE) meal at the Atherton Union Marketplace Café during normal operating hours. Flex Dollars can be used at any of the retail locations including Starbucks, Plum Market at C-Club, Trip's Corner Market in Apartment Village, Nutrition Cafe in the HRC, and ResCo. Meal Swipes and Flex Dollars are deposited onto cards at the start of each semester and do not roll over from semester to semester. 

The Community Block Plans allow for the swipe to be used at any meal at the Atherton Union Marketplace Café. Meal swipes may also be used as a "combo package" at retail locations. More information on Butler Dining is available at
