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 Business 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.
***Napkin inserts have been suspended for the Spring 2021 semester.
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 Existing napkin inserts may not be covered unless they are outdated.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
