How to get a dining card
The degree-program students, including the undergraduate students and graduate students, shall apply for a student IC card which can be used as the dining card.
The non-degree-program students, including the visiting students, exchange students and the Chinese language program students, shall apply for an ordinary dining card at the Student Dining Service Center located in student dormitory building No.15, with admission notice, student ID card (the paper card) or a certificate issued by International Students Office (ISO).
How to recharge your dining card
As to the degree-program students, including the undergraduate students and graduate students, there is no money in their student IC cards when they first get it. So the students can make use of the recharging machines set up in the campus to transfer the money from the debt card of the Bank of China that has been connected to the IC card. The recharging machines are located around Taoliyuan Dining Hall, Zijingyuan Dining Hall, Guanchouyuan Dining Hall, teaching building No. 6 as well as the Student Service Center (Zijing Building C), etc.
As to the non-degree program students, including the visiting students, exchange students and the Chinese language program students, they can recharge the ordinary dining card with RMB cash in the following places: Zijingyuan Dining Hall, Taoliyuan Dining Hall, Guanchouyuan Dining Hall, and the Student Dining Service Center (located in student dormitory building No. 15). According to the university’s regulation, the non-degree students using an ordinary dining card should be subject to 15% management fee. For example, if you recharge RMB 100 in cash in your dining card, you can only use RMB 85 actually.
If you don't have a dining card
You can use cash on the 3rd floors of Taoliyuan and Guanchouyuan Dining Halls, the 2nd floor of Zhilanyuan Dining Hall, Yushuyuan Dining Hall, Qingqing Kuaican (Hamburger), Qingqing Pizza, Qingqing Yonghe, Qingqing Xiuxian Canteen, Happy Four Bakery, Qingqing Times Cafe, and SPR Coffee, etc.
