The University of Alabama’s partnership with the free food ordering app “Tapingo” began on Monday, giving students the ability to order food from campus restaurants via their phone and have it delivered or ready for pickup.

“Mobile ordering used to be a thing of the future, now it’s a part of our present,” Bruce McVeagh, Bama Dining district manager told UA News. “Through Tapingo we hope to provide more access to our dining locations.”

Students are now able to order food from Boar’s Head, Chick-fil-A, Dunkin Donuts, Fuel, Mary B’s, Panda Express, Presidential Terrace, Raising Cane’s, Starbucks, Subway and Wendy’s via the Tapingo app which accepts Dining Dollars, Bama Cash, VIP Meals and credit/debit cards. 

The app will then text users when their food is on its way or ready for pickup. This way students don’t have to wonder when their food will get to them or wait in line.

Wait less. Live more,” the app says.
