Dining Dollar/LuteBucks

Your LuteCard is your PLU ID and so much more!

  • Dining Dollars: This denomination is included with all PLU meal plans and is accessed with your LuteCard — great for Faculty and Staff also. These are for food purchases only and expire on the last day of classes in May.
  • Meal Plans: All students living on-campus are required to have a meal plan, excluding South Hall residents. Your LuteCard will hold your Dining Dollars.
  • LuteBucks: This denomination will turn your LuteCard into a convenient on-campus debit card and may be used for copying/printing, at all campus restaurants and the Lute Locker. Add LuteBucks to your account with the GET app or at Old Main Market — great for Faculty and Staff also.
  • Building Access: Your LuteCard works as a keycard throughout campus.  The Access Administration Department will prepare your card with custom access levels based on campus living, work, classes and recreation needs.
  • On-Campus Events: Most of PLU’s on-campus events require showing your LuteCard at the door. PLU students often get discounts on tickets to music concerts and various other on-campus events, but only with your LuteCard.
  • Sports Facilities: Your LuteCard will allow you to access to Names Fitness Center and the pool.
  • Library: Your LuteCard is also your PLU library card.
