We are excited to introduce BJU Dining Services, Bob Jones University’s new and improved campus dining solution. Phase I of the dining common renovation and a renovation of the Snack Shop is well underway and scheduled to be completed in August and September respectively. Here’s a quick look at some of the improvements happening across campus.
The Varsity Room of the dining common is slated to reopen on Aug. 24 with its Phase I renovations completed. Renovations focus on making it easier for you to get your meals, increasing the hours during which you can eat, and offering more variety, freshness and quality.
The Varsity Room will have four entry points, allowing for quick and easy service. With continuous dining during the week and new weekend hours, the dining common will offer a flexible schedule that makes dining convenient for you.

Introducing Dining Dollars
Beginning this fall, BJU is introducing Dining Dollars, a pre-paid declining-balance account used in retail dining locations on campus. For residence hall students, regular dining common meals are still included in room and board. For day students and faculty/staff, you can use Dining Dollars to purchase meals in the dining common and the retail dining locations on campus.
Dining Dollars replaces the current campus charge system and allows both residence hall and day students to swipe their card at any campus retail dining location. The amount spent will be automatically deducted from the Dining Dollar account. Balances can be refilled online at www.bju.campusdish.com.
