General FAQs

One Block Meal is equivalent to one meal swipe into the Wood Dining Commons or Mule Express.

Meals can be used in the Wood Dining Commons and the Mule Express. Dining Dollars and 'Berg Bucks are accepted at all of our locations.

Dining Dollars are included in several meal plans and can only be used in dining venues. 'Berg Bucks are not included in any meal plan, however, accounts can be opened at any time. 'Berg Bucks can be spent at any on campus dining venue, toward Muhlenberg Dining catering orders, in the 'Berg Bookshop and at campus laundry equipment located in major residence halls.

You can add money to your 'Berg Bucks account. Please contact the Controller's Office at (484) 664-3150 for assistance.

Continuous Dining is available in the Wood Dining Commons so that our guests can enjoy a meal in between lunch and dinner as well as throughout the weekends.

College Departments and recognized Student Clubs and Organizations are welcome to advertise campus events using napkin inserts at the Wood Dining Commons or General's Quarters. Sponsoring organizations are responsible for the printing and placement of the inserts. Napkin inserts may be placed up to two weeks prior to the event and must be removed within 24 hours after the event. To avoid peak meal periods, napkin inserts should be placed between 7:00am - 10:00am or 2:00pm - 5:00pm. Existing napkin inserts may not be covered unless they are outdated.

Dimensions for napkin inserts should not exceed 6.5" x 4.25".

Please plan to post at only 1/3 of the tables to accommodate other postings.

Approximate quantities of napkin inserts:
Wood Dining Commons: 40
General's Quarters: 12

Berg Bucks FAQs

‘Berg Bucks is the name of the declining balance account previously known as Flex Dollars.

Mail a check payable to “MC ‘BERG BUCKS” to the Controller’s Office. View the Controller's Office site.

‘Berg Bucks is not part of meal plans, but offers an opportunity to customize plans offering additional buying power to meet your needs.

Berg Bucks:

  • Are not part of any meal plans.
  • May be used at on campus dining venues, the ‘Berg Bookshop, on campus laundry machines in major residence halls.
  • Unspent funds roll from semester to semester and year to year. Unspent funds ($25.00 or greater) will be refunded to the student.
  • Funds can be added at any time.

Dining Dollars:

  • Are exclusive to Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Cardinal meal plans.
  • May only be used at on campus dining venues.
  • Unspent funds roll from semester to semester but are forfeited at the conclusion of the Spring semester.
  • Additional funds may not be added.

Declining balance means with every transaction the amount available in the account declines; similar to a pre-paid gift card.

Transactions will be denied if sufficient funds are unavailable to cover a purchase. You can add 'Berg Bucks at any time.

You may tell the vendor to apply $X.XX using your ‘BERG BUCKS and pay the balance with another form of payment.

Cash withdrawals or cash back above the amount of sale are NOT an option.

When making a purchase, ask a cashier for your current balance.

To add funds, cardholders can visit the Cashier Window through the Controller’s Office located in the lower level of the Haas College Center or mail a check to the Controller’s Office made payable to “MC ‘BERG BUCKS”.

The ‘Berg Bucks fund balance transfers from year to year and ends at graduation. Students are encouraged to keep minimal balances in their ‘Berg Bucks account. After graduation, accounts with remaining ‘Berg Bucks funds in excess of $25.00, will be refunded to the student. Accounts with $25.00 and less will be transferred to the Class Year Fund.

The minimum deposit is $25.00. You may start with a minimum deposit in the ‘Berg Bucks account and review the activity to estimate usage. Additional deposits may be made throughout the year.
