Faculty and Staff Meal Plan

Special Note: The online enrollment for the Faculty and Staff Meal Plan will be inactivated for servicing and upgrades from November 1 at 5 p.m. to November 2 at 5 p.m.

Eco-Friendly Takeout Option

In line with the University’s commitment to sustainability, Clemson University Housing & Dining offers an eco-friendly takeout program to meal plan holders through Ozzi To-Go. For just $5, employees can enroll in the program by visiting the cashier stations at the Dish at McAlister, Schilletter or the Douthit Hills Community Hub. This program allows members to trade their Ozzi token for a reusable container any time they use a meal swipe at a dining hall. Once the container is empty, the faculty or staff member  can return the container to an Ozzi machine and exchange it for a new token, promoting responsible dining practices, and reducing waste on campus.

Flexible Payment Options and Special Discounts

Faculty and staff can pay for their meal plans through payroll deduction (for 9- or 12-month employees) via the Clemson Home Portal unless they want to pay in full.

Additionally, veterans are offered a special discount, reducing the price of the Employee and Grad meal plan to just $250.

Enhanced Dining Experience with Paw Points

For a more versatile dining experience, Clemson University Housing & Dining offers Paw Points, an optional addition that allows members to experience all that campus dining has to offer. One Paw Point equals $1.00, offering flexibility in dining choices. Paw Points can be used at any Clemson Home Dining location – including P.O.D. Market convenience stores and retail locations across campus.
