Meal Plans and Dining Dollars

Eating on campus is easy with an NYU Dining Meal Plan. We have 12 dining locations across campus that offer delicious dining options, a variety of foods and convenience.  With a meal plan, you've got food covered, its one less thing you have to worry about. 

Once you have a meal plan, your student ID works like a debit card. Simply swipe your card and the meal, meal exchange or dining dollars is deducted from your account automatically.

There are three components to our meal plans, Meal Allowance, Meal Exchange and Dining Dollars.

Meal Allowance
Meal Allowance is the number of meals that can be used in all-you-care-to-eat dining locations: Weinstein, Third North and Hayden. The cashier will deduct one meal from your plan upon entering these locations, you are free to eat as  much as you like once inside.  You can also take your Meal 2 Go, inform the cashier when you enter the location.

Meal Exchange
This feature allows you to exchange one meal allowance swipe for a combo meal at our retail food courts: Market Place in Kimmel, Weinstein Food Court, U-Hall Commons Cafe, Dunkin Donuts and Peet's Coffee and Tea.

Dining Dollars
Dining Dollars (DD) is accepted at all dining locations. DD works like a bank debit card; each time you make a purchase the total is subtracted from the balance in your account. Each Dining Dollar is equivalent to one U.S. Dollar. Dining Dollars are accepted at all NYU Dining locations including Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Peet's Coffee, Argo Tea and in our c-stores.

If you run low on Dining Dollars add more through-out the semester by logging into
NYU Home and going to the Housing Channel.  Dining Dollars can be added in blocks of $15, $25, $50 or $100.

Dining Dollars roll over from fall to spring semester, unused fall DD is added to your spring balance after the last day of the meal plan drop/add period for the spring semester.  Please reference the Dining Brochure for the exact date.

Meal Plan Membership Options 

Flex Plans can be used at your discretion throughout the semester. These plans give you more time to use all of your meals. Any unused meals at the end of the semester are forfeited.
