The Skyhawk Dining Hall is “all-you-care-to-eat” for every meal, seven days a week. We welcome you to eat as much as you wish, but we do encourage you to think healthy. Take only what you can eat, and you are always welcome to come back for seconds!
We also offer a quick grab-and-go option at the Simply-To-Go Kiosk in the Skyhawk Dining Hall, Captain's Coffee, and Gooch Hall. At these kiosks, you can use a meal swipe to get an entrée, side, dessert, and a drink to go!
No, they will not. If you miss a meal during the week or do not eat all of the meals within any given week, the meal(s) WILL NOT carry over into the following week.
Meal periods run from Monday morning to Sunday evening. Any meals not eaten during that week are not transferable or refundable.
Block meal plans offers students a number of meals for the entire semester with no weekly limits. Any meals not used at semester's end will not carry over to the following semester.
Captain’s Cash is a tax-free declining balance that can be spent at any on campus dining location. As the money is spent in places such as the Food Court, On the Fly, Simply-To-Go, and the coffee shops, the purchases are subtracted from the beginning balance dollar for dollar.
Your Captain’s Cash can also be used in the Dining Hall in addition to the meal portion of your meal plan. Catering trays from our Catering Department, Chick-fil-A, and Mein Bowl may also be purchased with Captain's Cash.
Every meal plan includes Captain's Cash, but more can be added to your account at any time. If you would like to purchase more Captain's Cash, simply log on to your campus banner account or contact our customer service department.
Captain's Cash will roll over from the fall semester to the spring semester with the purchase of a spring semester meal plan. Captain's Cash will NOT roll over from the spring semester to the fall semester.
Captain's Cash is non-refundable. Any Captain's Cash remaining will be lost if not used by the end of the spring semester.
Please refer to "What is Captain's Cash" to know where and how Captain's Cash can be used.
Take-out meals will now be served from our Simply-To-Go station inside the Dining Hall, Captain's Coffee, and Gooch Hall. A meal will include one entree, one side, one beverage, and one dessert for the cost of one meal plan swipe.

No. All students must use their own valid Skyhawk Card to dine. Students who allow others to use their card to dine will be charged a $25 fee. However, if you have a block meal plan, you can invite a guest to dine with you and use one of your remaining block meals for payment.
All we ask is that the student is present upon payment when using their Skyhawk Card. If your card is lost or stolen, please contact Customer Service.
Meal Plans are always active throughout the semester. However, UT Martin Dining Services will be closed during these breaks: Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break, Christmas Break, Spring Break, and Good Friday/Easter Weekend.
All Meal Plans must be paid during Fee Assessment (first two weeks of each semester) or a Payment Plan must be set up through the Bursar's Office located in the Administration Building.
