The UWSP Housing Contract requires that all students living in university residence halls participate in a meal plan. Upper class students living in residential halls are also required to have residential dining plans. This requirement excludes Hyer Hall and The Suites.
A dining plan waiver may only be granted for documented medical conditions. If you would like to request an exemption, please submit a Dining Plan Exemption Request Form to Dining and Summer Conferences. Dining has a wide–range of available resources, so exemptions are rare. Submission of a form does not guarantee a waiver will be approved. Financial hardship does not constitute an exemption to dining plan requirements because room and board are part of college planning and Financial Aid.
For your security reasons we will not manually type in your ID number without your ID present. If you have a valid PointCard that is not readable, we will manually type this in for one meal and you will be required to get this corrected at The PointCard Office.
You can pick up a temporary meal card for short term use in DUC 240 in the event you are having issues getting a PointCard.
Semester dining plans follow the residential halls schedule with some variation. Fall and spring semester dining plans begin on move-in day for multi-year students. They typically end after lunch on the last day of exams during both semesters. For other breaks and holidays, please watch for academic year specific announcements.
Fall meal plans can be changed by emailing the Point Card Office from your UWSP email account two business days prior to the first meal being served. Spring meal plans can be changed by emailing the Point Card Office from your UWSP email account by 3:00 p.m. Friday prior to the start of the spring semester. Changes are not permitted during the first week of the semester, but changes will be accepted during the second and third weeks. Please be aware that you may see an additional charge or refund on your tuition bill depending on how many meals and Dawg Dollars you have used prior to the change. Changes to plans can be made at the PointCard Office in the DUC. If you do not select a plan you will be automatically assigned to the 200 Block plan.
If you would like to request an exemption, please submit a Dining Plan Exemption Request Form to the PointCard Office, 1015 Reserve Street, Room 340, Stevens Point, WI 54481.
There are no daily swipe limits. Your swipes can also be used for guest meals.
Swipe Trades provide for a cash value of $5.00 at any DSC retail location. If your purchase exceeds $5.00, the balance can be paid with cash, credit card, Dawg Dollars, PointCash, or an additional swipe trade.
Plan ahead: Before you arrive, you should contact the Executive Chef at  346-4878 or via email so you can discuss any specific needs or concerns. Once you arrive, please introduce yourself to the managers and staff so we may work with you. We continually work to provide as much information as possible to enable you to make informed dining choices. In rare circumstances dining plan exemptions are granted for documented medical conditions. To submit an exemption request please use the following form: Dining Plan Exemption Form.
Unused meals do not roll over to the following semester, so it is important to determine which plan fits your academic schedule, extracurricular activities, and weekend travel plans. Unused meals are forfeited and there is no refund. Current dining plan prices reflect the fact that not all students utilize all their meals.
Dawg Dollars roll over from the fall to the spring semester as long as a new dining plan contract is signed. All Dawg Dollars must be used by the end of the spring semester and do not carry over.
Our menus are available here. Check out NetNutrition for nutritional information.
Table tent requests are hadled through Campus Reservations for both DUC and DeBot Dining Center.
You can apply online or visit Room 241 in the DUC. There are usually blank applications outside the door if nobody is there.

Ask a cashier/checker in any DSC dining location to check your card balance or log on to pointcard.uwsp.edu.
Food should be consumed while in the dining room. This policy is in place to keep costs lower for students. Something that you are eating while exiting the dining room, like a piece of fruit or ice cream cone, is OK.
Watch our Facebook page, Student Message of the Day, Twitter, menu monitors, and paper marketing. We also have an event calendar on our homepage.
Meals are not available during break periods (Thanksgiving, Winterim, Spring). On Monday holidays (e.g., Labor Day), DeBot will be open regular hours, while retail locations will be closed. Typically, DeBot re-opens for evening service the day before classes resume (Thanksgiving & Winterim). Please check locations for the most current operational hours.
Refunds are available through the Point Card Office through week 8 of the semester.
Unused meals and Dawg Dollars from the current semester will be fully refunded. Unused Dawg Dollars from the previous semester will not be refunded.
