Using Your Meal Swipes & Dining Dollars at Aspire’s Crave Food Hall

Crave Food Hall is located within Aspire at Discovery Park (in Building A). Crave Food Hall is not operated by Purdue Dining & Culinary, however, we have entered into an agreement for the 2019-2020 academic year so those who live in University Residences (who also have a meal plan) can take advantage of Crave’s food offerings.

Instructions on how to use a meal swipe and dining dollars at Crave are below:

Meal Swipe Policy:
Any student who lives in University Residences (in Aspire or elsewhere - including RAs) AND have a meal plan can use ONE swipe for dinner (2:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m., Monday through Friday) at Aspire’s Crave Food Hall. This applies to all UR students, no matter where they live (again, as long as they have a meal plan). If any student has already used all 8 of their PDQ Swipes for the week or all of their 8 or 13 meal plan swipes, they will be denied access at Crave Food Hall and must use another form of payment for their choices.

Dining Dollars & Boiler Express Policy:
Crave will also be accepting Dining Dollars any time of day, seven days a week. Also, new as of the Spring 2020 semester, Boiler Express will be accepted at Crave.

There is a limit of ONE swipe per day. Also, at no time will swipes or dining dollars be allowed for items at the bar.
