Membership Choices
Diversity. It’s one of the greatest things about the university experience. It’s also one of the things we offer with your dining membership.  Our memberships bring you two features:

Carte Blanche Continuous Dining Plan
This dining membership offers you unlimited access to Blackbird Cafe, the residential restaurant on campus.  With this membership you will enjoy unlimited access when the residential restaurant is open.  During the day breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served at Blackbird.  At certain times of the day there will be limited service to allow us to set up for the next meal period.  Limited service will still feature a delicious variety of full meal solutions.  You will be able to find everything from a continental breakfast between breakfast and lunch to soups and sandwiches between lunch and dinner.

No need to rush to Blackbird, with a membership you're always welcome!

Dining Dollars (DDs)
Each dining plan offers Dining Dollars which can be used in all of our service locations. They work like an ATM or debit card. Use your DDs for beverages, snacks or full meals for yourself and your friends. Whatever you buy, the total purchase is subtracted from your Dining Dollars. Plus, you can add DDs to your card any time at the Bursar's Office located in the Melcalf Building or at the ADM machine located outside Luntey Commons.

$200 Supplemental Option
You have the option to add $200 in addiitonal dining dollars to any resident meal plan before the add/drop period ends, and have this amount billed to your student account.  After the add/drop deadline, you must use a cfredit card to add additional funds.

Terms and Conditions
All funds and plans purchased for use in the LIU Brooklyn Dining program are for the personal use of the owner of the account and are non-transferable.  The LIU Dining funds and plans cannot be used as a gift or gift certificate.  Except as otherwise expressly stated in these terms, all dining program funds and plans are non-refundable and will expire at the earlier of the last day of enrollment or employment, as applicable, or the last day if the current semester.
