First Year, Transfer and Visiting Tandon Students

NYU requires all first-year, transfer and visiting students, irrespective of academic status, living in residence halls to participate in an NYU Dining Meal Plan. If living on campus, you will automatically be assigned an NYU Meal Plan that can be adjusted after you receive your official housing assignment.

All upperclassmen living in Othmer are required to be on the BRKLYN 50 Flex plan or higher.

Upperclassmen living in Clark and commuters are not required to purchase a plan.
