Important Info

Lost Meal Cards

Please report any lost meal card to Campus Security immediately.

Using your Meal Card

Your SMCC College ID Card can be your ticket to the outlets on campus. With the purchase of a Beacon Bucks account, simply present your ID when you visit for meals in Oceanview Dining Hall or Seawolves Café in the campus center. Each time, your purchases are deducted from your balance. Please treat your SMCC student ID (meal plan card) as a credit card. DO NOT lend it to anyone or borrow one from someone else. Fraudulent lending of your ID card will result in your ID being confiscated and sent to Office of Housing and Residence Life for further action.

Dietary Requirements

Do you have particular dietary needs? No problem! Our Campus Dining Services Program will try our best to accommodate your special dietary requirements. For more information, please contact us at extension 5566.

Sick Trays

Sick trays are available for resident students. If you are feeling under the weather we recommend you visit the RA on duty who will then contact dining services to make arrangements to get a meal for you.

Dining Policies

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 and make the table available for others
  • Please refrain from taking food, dishes or utensils from the dining area. Anyone caught stealing food from any dining Services location will be referred to the Office of Housing and Residence Life for further action.
  • Remember that Meal Cards are non-transferable. Meal cards cannot be used by anyone but the purchaser.
