Dining Plans

We understand that hectic schedules and student lifestyles do not fit into a 9-to-5 schedule, so we've created dining plans that work with you. New students to TCU have a choice of three Frog Pass Plans. The Frog Pass plan gives you unlimited access to Market Square, our specialty dining restaurant, along with Campus Cash that can be used at any on-campus dining locations and Frog Bucks that can be used at retail dining locations on campus and at participating off-campus locations.

2016 - 2017 Plan Options

Dining Policies & Procedures

One of our main goals is to provide a pleasant, clean, comfortable and satisfying dining experience. In order to meet this goal, we ask for your assistance with the following procedures:

  • Please refrain from taking food, dishes or utensils from the dining area.
  • Remember that meal cards are non-transferable. Meal cards can be used by the purchaser only.
  • Please bus your tables when you have finished dining.
  • While this is an All-You-Care-to-Eat location, we ask that you take what you can eat and eat what you take.
