Conference Dining Information

While at BYU, conference guests may enjoy our nationally-recognized dining services. Conference organizers have selected a dining plan that best serves the needs of their participants. Options include a cafeteria-based meal plan or a Cougar Cash Card.

Meal Plans


With a meal plan, you will be eating pre-specified meals in either the Cannon Commons or the Morris Center. Your meal card will be labeled with a "C" to indicate which meals you will be eating at the Cannon Commons or an "M" if you will be eating at the Morris Center. Missed meals cannot be credited nor can the meal plan be altered for any individual guest.

Cougar Cash Cards


Some conferences provide guests with a type of debit account called a Cougar Cash Card. To use the Cougar Cash Card, simply present the card when making a purchase, or "swipe" the card through the reader on the vending machines.

Cougar Cash Card Use

If you are given a Cougar Cash Card, carefully read the information concerning its use provided by your conference, because some conferences restrict the locations where your Cougar Cash may be used. The following are possible locations where you may use your Cougar Cash:

*Note: Only Cougar Cash Cards specifically authorized for the BYU bookstore will be accepted there. For your protection, you must present either your conference name tag or a photo ID with your Cougar Cash Card to make purchases at the Bookstore.

Cougar Cash Card Balance

With each purchase, the amount of the purchase is deducted and the remaining balance will be shown. You may also find out the current balance, without making a purchase, from a Dining Services cashier or at the Bookstore service desk. You may add funds to your Cougar Cash Card at any of the following locations:

Lost or Stolen Cougar Cash Card

The Cougar Cash system has security measures built in to protect you if your card is lost or stolen. Lost or stolen cards can be reported to any dining services cashier or can be reported and replaced at the following locations:

Location Phone Number
Cannon Center (801) 422-2034
Cougar Cash Card Office (801) 422-3866

Cougar Cash Card Refunds

Once your conference begins, there can be no refunds for unused Cougar Cash balances or unclaimed Cougar Cash Cards. You should use all your account balance by the last day of your conference. After this date, your account will be closed.
