Staff Payment Options

Take advantage of dining dollar credits that is applied to your Yale University ID card - called Eli Bucks.  This payment option is an easy way to purchase meals across the Yale Campus and helps eliminate the need to carry cash for that purpose.  To use Eli Bucks, you simply present your University ID card at the time of purchase.

  • Eli Bucks can be used at any of Yale Dining’s retail cafés and food store operations as well as in all residential dining halls
  • Eli Bucks have another advantage: they earn you a 10% discount at the point of sale of most Yale Dining campus locations (i.e., the discount is not valid at the School of Management, McDougal Blue Dog Café, the Yale Golf Course or The Kosher Kitchen at Joseph Slifka Center).
  • Additional Eli Bucks can be purchased at any time, in any amount.
  • Eli Bucks can be purchased by active Students, Staff and Faculty with a valid Yale University ID.
  • As long as your status with the University does not change, your Eli Bucks will not expire, and will carry forward from year to year.
