- Please bus your dishes and disposables from your table when you have finished dining.
- Please refrain from taking food, dishes or utensils from the dining area.
- Remember that meal cards are non-transferable. Meal cards cannot be used by anyone but the purchaser.
Co-Exchange Program – University of Notre Dame
Saint Mary’s College and Sodexo Dining Services provides students with a limited meal exchange program at the University of Notre Dame. This program permits the following approved groups and students to receive a dinner meal at the University of Notre Dame:
- Saint Mary's students participating in the Notre Dame Marching band when band practice interferes with dining times at Saint Mary's.
- Saint Mary's students taking classes at Notre Dame when class time interfere with dining times at Saint Mary's.
- Saint Mary's students who are members of the ROTC at Notre Dame.
- All other requests will be reviewed for approval by Saint Mary's and Sodexo.
Students who choose to participate in extracurricular activities or work at Notre Dame are not eligible for a co-exchange meal.
Please supply official documentation listing dates and times that co-ex is needed, these documents must be included with the request. Once submitted, please allow 5 business days for the request to be processed. After 2/02/2019, students need to email Sue Swathwood (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make an appointment to meet with Sodexo of Saint Mary’s to request an approval for a co-ex.
Once approved, students can pick up a "CoEx Approval Card" at the checker's station in the Noble Family Dining Hall. On this card, the specific days that "CoEx" has been approved will be identified. The student will then be able to go to the Noble Family Dining Hall on those days and show this "Approval" card to receive the actual "CoEx" that will allow them to eat at Notre Dame. All "CoEx" tickets must be picked up between the hours of 7:00 am - 3:00 pm, Sunday through Friday. This program is only available for the Dinner Meal Period.
