Meal Plans and Dining Halls

Some cohorts of visiting students will be required to have meal plans. In general, having a student meal plan is optional. Should you be interested in the NYU dining options here is more information regarding the NYU dining halls and meal plans:

How does my meal plan work? 

After you decide if you want a meal plan you will need to register for one. After you have selected your plan your NYUCard acts as your dining card–you swipe your card whenever you get a meal.

What are dining dollars? How do those work? 

Meal plans include dining dollars, which are accepted as cash at NYU dining locations. They work on the same principle as debit cards by swiping your NYUCard. You can use your dining dollars to purchase beverages, snacks, or full meals, and the total amount is subtracted from your balance. Unused dining dollars carry over each week. Unused dining dollars at the end of the spring semester are not refundable.  Be sure to use all your dining dollars before the program ends!

Where can I go for meals? 

Visiting students will have access to a variety of dining options, ranging from traditional cafeteria-style dining halls (like The Market Place at Kimmel and Weinstein Passport Dining)  to coffee shops and cafes (like Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts). 

When are dining hours?

Dining locations are open every day at various times. For information about specific location hours, check the hours of operation online.

What if I have dietary restrictions? 

NYU dining options include  gluten-free, vegan, and Kosher options. NYU is also able to make reasonable accommodations for any dietary restrictions you may have. If you need accommodations, please contact the NYU Dining Services Office at  and they will be happy to assist you.
