Use Elevate meal swipes at your favorite Corner restaurants.
Say goodbye to dining halls.
Why We're Different
We've worked to create a new meal plan that solves the problems of traditional dining halls. Choose from hundreds of tasty restaurant options, order ahead for pickup with our app, and rollover all unused meals.
Since starting Elevate at UVA in 2015, we've proudly served more than 150,000 meals and expanded to 7 schools across the country. Overpaying for lunch and dinner, settling for mediocre food, and scrambling to use up your swipes at the end of the semester will soon be things of the past.
Seth & Josh, Elevate Co-Founders
1. Rollover unused meals
It's unfair to charge you for unused meals. With Elevate, there's no need to scramble and use up meals at the end of each semester.
2. Skip lines
Use our app to order ahead and and pick up (or dine-in). With one tap, order your meal before you leave your apartment and pick it up on your way to class!
3. Save money
As a part of the Elevate meal plan you'll be eligible for special deals only available to Elevate customers. When compared to a traditional school meal plan you'll save even more.
Use Elevate at the best Corner restaurants
Corner Juice, Crozet Pizza, Littlejohn's, Roots Natural Kitchen, Asado, Rev Soup, Potbelly, The Biltmore, Juice Laundry, Kuma, Christian's, & much more

Frequently Asked Questions

+ What meals can I eat at the restaurants?

We work with restaurants to create unique Elevate meal combos. Check out the menus section of our website to view which combos are offered at your school.

+ What if I don't use all my meals?

Unlike traditional meal plans, your swipes roll over until you graduate.

+ How do I place an order?

There are two ways to order with the Elevate mobile app and most restaurants offer both options!

Advance Order - Submit your order on the app and pick up about 15 minutes later. Just tell the restaurant your name and that you are picking up with Elevate.

In Restaurant - Wait in line or sit down at the restaurant (let the restaurant staff know you ordered). When it's time to pay, submit your order and tell the cashier or waitstaff you are paying with Elevate.

+ Is Elevate cost effective?

Absolutely! We aim to be less expnsive than any dining hall when the cost per meal is calculated.

We've negotiated discounts with all of our restaurants to offer you lower prices per meal with the Elevate plan than if you purchase the same meals individually. Your savings will vary slightly depending on which restaurant you're eating at and which meal plan you choose.

+ Am I restricted when I can use my plan?

Almost never! Anytime the restaurant is open, you can use your Elevate meal plan. At certain restaurants you may not be able to redeem meals on sports game days.

+ Is Elevate only for take out?

It's also for dine-in! If you choose to dine in we just encourage you to tip your server. Anything you choose to buy outside of the Elevate menu will need be purchased separately at the restaurant (i.e. alcohol).

+ Do I get any special deals?

On top of the built in discount, restaurants will also post weekly deals to encourage orders at their off-hours. For instance, a restauant might offer a free drink if you eat Monday.

+ Can I use my plan for alcohol?

Sorry! None of the elevate meals include alchohol because parents appreicate knowing their money is going towards food.

+ Can I use more than one swipe at a time?

Yep! Stocking up before an exam or swiping in friends are possible options.
