*The Unlimited Meal Plan offers unlimited trips to Morrison Hall. All foods should be consumed while in the dining facility, and not taken to go. A limit of (2) Grab and Go or (1) One Swipe + (1) Grab and Go is also permitted under this meal plan.

Grab and Go - an extension of Morrison Hall that operates 7 days week enabling students to use a meal swipe to get an appetizer, entrée, snack and beverage to go.

One Swipe - Bloomfield Café offers a meal swipe program from 11AM-2 Monday to Friday offering predetermined lunch packages.

*A Declining Card Balance (DCB) is simply money that will be deposited into your Deb-X Account that allows you to purchase items at various cafes throughout campus, at the StFX Store and at printing stations. It works like a debit system. Set-up your Deb-X account to track your usage and add money.

**Save by adding non taxable to your Deb-X account and increase your DCB before the academic year begins. The offer is only available to students carrying a full board plan (one of the above).
