Campus Dining

Johnson & Wales University’s North Miami Campus dining center, The Mix, is managed by Chartwells, a division of Compass Group Inc.

The Mix seeks to provide the best in products and services for customers and guests; in many instances, food is prepared by culinary internship students. Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate students with special dietary preferences based on health, religious or personal needs. Comments may be submitted to the Chartwells management team or by completing a comment card at The Mix. Details on meal plans, menus, dining events and coupons are also available online.

Meal Plans

There are a variety of meal plan options available to campus residents.

Resident students are required to select a meal plan when they make their residence hall selection. Meal plan offerings vary based on class year and residence hall. New students (first-year students) may choose 14 or 18 meals per week. Returning students may choose 10, 14 or 18 meals per week. Full meals at The Mix consist of an entree, 4 sides and a beverage, or a meal equivalency at the Cyber Café. Students have access to their meal plans Sunday through Saturday, 1 swipe per meal period. Unused meals do not roll over from week-to-week or term-to-term.

Every meal plan also offers flex dollars that can be used to purchase additional meals and guest meals at The Mix and retail purchases at the Cyber Café. The balance declines as flex dollars are used. Flex dollars are allotted each term and unused dollars roll over from week-to-week but expire at the end of the term and cannot be rolled over to a new term.

All students, faculty and staff also have the ability to purchase individual meals at the door or Wildcat Meals in blocks of 10, 25 or 50. Additional flex dollars in increments of $25 may also be purchased. Wildcat Meal blocks and additional flex dollars may be purchased online or at the Chartwells office on campus. All Wildcat Meals and additional flex dollars roll over from term-to-term but expire at the end of the academic year in which they are purchased.

Once a student has paid for the plan, they can check the status of meals and flex dollars by visiting either The Mix or Cyber Café. The student must present a valid student ID to the cashier to receive this information.

Commuters

Commuter students can pay the door rate or purchase Wildcat Meals in blocks of 10, 25 or 50, as well as additional flex dollars in increments of $25. Wildcat Meal blocks and additional flex dollars may be purchased online or at the Chartwells office on campus. All Wildcat Meals and additional flex dollars roll over from term-to-term but expire at the end of the academic year in which they are purchased. The cost of the Wildcat Meal plan and additional flex dollars is nonrefundable.

Guests

Guests may purchase a single meal at the door or use Wildcat Meals or flex dollars from their escort's card.
