Department Charges

What is department charge?

Department charge provides an option for University departments to allow authorized users to charge meals at select University Housing dining locations.

Where can department charge be used?

Department charge is accepted at all classic University Housing dining halls. Our classic dining halls are all-you-care-to-eat venues. See the list of locations and hours and view the menu of what is being offered at each meal.

Two new classic venues are open during the academic year (not open during summer session).

  • Located on the first floor of the Illini Union, Orange on Green provides lunch Monday through Friday.
  • Blue 41 is in Illini Union Ballroom on the second floor serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Monday through Friday along with brunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday.

How do I manage my department charge account?

Departments can manage their accounts to make charging meals at the dining locations quick and simple. Additional information about setting up accounts can be found here.

If you have questions or issues with your department charge, contact University Housing. Select "Department Charge" from the list of topics on the form.
