Courtesy Meals for Summer 2020

Any NYU student currently taking summer classes, and living within walking distance of the Washington Square Campus, who is experiencing food insecurity can submit this request form for assistance in accessing food near campus.

Please note that due to current New York City recommendations about essential travel, and in the interest of health and safety, we strongly discourage students from using public transportation to come to campus at this time.

Please note NYU Dining Halls are closed for Summer 2020 beginning Thursday, May 21. 

Students who cannot easily come to campus are encouraged to apply for the NYU COVID-19 Emergency Relief Grant if they are experiencing food insecurity due to disruptions related to COVID-19.


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

  • Are provided free of charge to those who seek them.
  • Are initially provided on a no-questions-asked basis.  
  • will have no impact on financial aid award for students currently enrolled in summer classes
