Guest Meals

We believe great moments happen over a shared meal! Whether you’re visiting campus for the first time or a regular guest, Tufts guests are welcome to enjoy meals and snacks at all of our locations. Students, faculty, and staff may purchase a meal for a guest using a meal swipe (a guest meal swipe for Premium Plan holders), JumboCash, or Rhino Bucks (at the SMFA Café).

Payment Options

We accept cash, credit card (Mastercard, Visa, and Discover), or JumboCash and Rhino Bucks (SMFA Café), our prepaid debit payment options. If you enjoy a meal at Carmichael or Dewick-MacPhie Dining Centers, the following rates apply (valid through August 18, 2020):

  Breakfast Lunch Dinner

If you are the parent of a current student and your child has a meal plan, we invite you to join them for a free meal in Carmichael Dining Center or Dewick-MacPhie Dining Center. Please note that your student must dine with you.

Group Dining

Departments at Tufts interested in providing a meal for groups of 10 or more visitors (or faculty/staff) should contact Tufts Catering to coordinate access to dining center meals. Volume discounts may apply.
