Food points are used to supplement dining plans. Each food point is equivalent to $1 and is accessed with a DukeCard. They can be used to buy snacks and meals at any on-campus eatery, Merchants on Points vendor, food trucks and campus convenience store or vending machines.
Don’t stress over calculating the perfect number of food points. You can add more points during the semester in $25+ increments. We recommend selecting the lowest level of points and adding more when necessary.
Flexible Spending Account (FLEX)
Your FLEX account is just as flexible as you are! You can add funds to your Dukecard through your FLEX account and use them at all on-campus (and even some off campus) locations. FLEX is useful for purchasing everything from food, to books, to event tickets, and more.
