Mountainlair now accepting dining plan swipes for lunch

This fall semester, WVU Dining Plans will work in the Mountainlair during the lunch hours at Burger King, Chick-fil-A, Sbarro, Which Wich and Tazikis. Hatfields will continue to accept Dining Plans for breakfast hours only, but will accept Dining Dollars, Mountie Bounty, cash, credit and debit during lunch.

The previous policy was in place because of capacity issues- we just didn't have the space to serve students with Dining Plans in the Lair. With last year's opening of the Evansdale Crossing, capacity has opened in the Mountainlair, and we can now accept Dining Plan swipes as a form of payment.

For more information on adjustments to Campus Dining in 2017, including adjusted hours of operation for Chick-fil-A, Burger King and the Terrace Room at Stalnaker, visit and check out our Dining News tab.
