Additionally, any student can request a free meal at Palladium Dining Hall located at 140 East 14th Street. For the remainder of the spring term, Palladium will be the only dining location open. Click here for the most up-to-date hours of operation.

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.  
  • Will not have an impact on a student's financial aid.
