Dining Services

Beginning in fall 2008, eating out while staying on campus is easy with the TCU Frog Pass. TCU students will have many fresh choices at Market Square in the new Brown-Lupton University Union. The Frog Pass Dining Plan allows students unlimited access to Market Square from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, and includes a light night snack from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. in 1873 Grill and Café. Choose from one of three Frog Pass plans—Silver, Gold and Platinum—and receive Frog Bucks that can be used on campus at one of TCU's six other campus dining locations or off campus.

Market Square

Located on the second floor of the Brown-Lupton University Union, Market Square offers seven unique dining venues—Trinity Grill, Stacks Deli, Il Trattoria, Shuffles, Cookhouse, Expeditions and the Oasis—with a wide variety of foods prepared to order. Booths, high-top tables, patio and terrace seating for more than 800 give students a chance to truly sit down and relax. Five plasma TVs allow students to catch up on the news of the day, while catching up with friends. Market Square is a kitchen, dining room and lounge, all in one.

Frog Pass

Frog Pass is the TCU dining plan. It allows students to come and go as often they like from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on the weekends. Three plans provide Frog Bucks that can be used on campus at one of TCU's six other campus dining locations or off campus:

  • Silver plan includes $100 Frog Bucks
  • Gold plan includes $300 Frog Bucks
  • Platinum plan includes $450 Frog Bucks

Frog Bucks

Designed to give students flexibility, Frog Bucks can be used on or off campus. Unused Frog Bucks that come with the Frog Pass plans will roll over to the spring semester, but are NOT refundable at the end of the academic year. If students are running low, they can easily add more Frog Bucks online through TCU. All Frog Bucks added onto the base meal plan are refundable.

1873 Grill and Café

TCU's own sports grill and café, 1873 Grill and Café is located on the first floor of the Brown-Lupton University Union. Open until 2 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday and until 3 a.m. Thursday through Saturday, students can pay with cash, credit or Frog Bucks.
