NYU established the Courtesy Meals program to provide free, immediate, short-term food support to enrolled students, undergraduate and graduate, who are in need of food assistance.  Courtesy Meals:

  • Provide a $75 credit of dining dollars that is added to a student's NYU ID.
  • Are provided free of charge to those who seek them.
  • Are initially provided on a no-questions-asked basis.  Following the third request, the student will be expected to speak with staff from the Wellness Exchange or the Office of Financial Education for any additional request.
  • Will not have an impact on a student's financial aid.
Simply visit any of the locations below, and ask to speak with someone about Courtesy Meals.
