GMercyU's Waldron Cafe

Dining Services


Relax with friends over a meal in the Waldron Café, grab coffee before class at the Maguire Hall Starbucks Kiosk or share a late-night pizza with friends at the Pepperazzi.

We know meals plans are an important part of your lifestyle, so we offer flexibility in our dining options through our exclusive caterer, Parkhurst Dining Services. You can learn more about your meal plan options on our Tuition & Fees page. 


MERV Bucks

All of our plans include MERV Bucks, which can be redeemed at dining spots around campus without using a meal. It’s the perfect solution when you’re between classes and looking for a snack or cup of coffee. They can be used for additional meals, guest meals, and commercially packaged products at the Waldron Cafe, Pepperazzi, or Pop Up Events.

If you run out of MERV Bucks before the semester ends, you can purchase additional Flex Dollars. If you have MERV Bucks left over from fall semester, they will transfer to the spring semester, but they do not transfer from the spring semester to the following fall semester. 


Flex Dollar Accounts

Using your student ID, you can establish a Flex Dollar Account, which acts as a debit account for purchases you make on campus. The balance on your account is carried forward each semester until you graduate or formally withdraw from the University.

You can purchase flex dollars at the Campbell Solution Center or online through eAccounts on the GMercyU Portal. You can purchase any amount but any purchase over $50 will receive a 10% enhancement.
