Important Info

Selection of a Campus Dining Services Meal Plan enables your Student ID Card to allow you to purchase meals at any food service location with the purchasing power equivalent to the plan you have selected.  Here is how it works: Present your Student ID to the cashier and let them know your form of payment.  Graceland Student ID Cards contain several forms of payment to use in the Food Service.  You have your meal plan meals, which can be used in the Commons and for meal exchange in the Swarm Inn, Flex Points that can be used in the Commons or Swarm Inn, and GBUCK$ that can be used in the Commons, Swarm Inn, and  at any participating off campus restaurant or merchant. 

Lost or stolen Student ID Cards
Lost or stolen Student ID Cards can be replaced.  Report all stolen Student ID Cards immediately to Student Life.  To obtain a new Student ID Card please see the staff in the Residence or Student Life offices located in the Memorial Student Center.  Fees may apply.  Temporary meal cards are available should the need arise.  You may receive up to 2 temporary meal cards per semester by visiting any cashier in the Commons. Each temporary meal card will be good for the next 3 meals.   There is a $2 charge for each card after your 2nd temporary meal card.  You must show a photo ID to obtain a temporary meal card. You cannot use a temporary meal card that is out of date. You may only obtain a temporary meal cards at the Commons.

Seconds Policy
You never have to be too shy to ask for seconds in the Commons.  Our generous policy allows for a second helping of many menu favorites.  Please note, however, that there are some exceptions to our Seconds Policy including: all dine-in meals must be consumed in the Commons, you must use a clean plate every time you visit a food station, we encourage you to take only what you can eat and are welcome to come back for more, if you choose the carry out option you cannot enter the dining area at any time.  Equipment or service ware may not be removed from the Commons at any time.

Do you have particular dietary needs?  Please let us know!  Our Campus Dining Services Program can accommodate your special dietary requirements.  For more information, please contact Chef Jenny Boegli, at 641-784-5269.  

Policies and Procedures
One of our main goals is to provide a pleasant, clean, comfortable and satisfying dining experience. In order to meet this goal, we ask for your assistance with the following procedures:

  • Please bus your dishes and disposables from your table when you have finished dining
  • Please refrain from taking food, dishes or utensils from the dining area.
  • Remember that Meal Plans and ID Cards are non-transferable.  Meal Plans and ID Cards cannot be used by anyone but the purchaser.

Recommended for: Everyone, students, staff and faculty!!  There are no limits to the amount of GBUCK$ that can be purchased!   NOTE:  Every full time student who pays the activity fee will receive a $50.00* payment per semester (2 payments per academic year) at the start of classes.
