Conference Dining Information

Provided Meals

  • Conference meals are paid for using a cafeteria-based meal plan or a Cougar Cash Card.

Dining Locations

  • Conference guests with a meal plan will be eating pre-specified meals in either the Cannon Commons or the Heritage Halls Central Building.
  • Participants’ meal cards will be labeled with a "C" to indicate which meals they will be eating at the Cannon Commons or with an "H" if they will be eating at the Heritage Halls Central Building.
  • Missed meals cannot be credited nor can the meal plan be altered for any individual guest.

Dining Locations that Accept Cougar Cash Cards

  • Cougar Cash Cards may be used by presenting them when making a purchase or by swiping them through a card reader at locations like vending machines.
