First-Year, Visiting and Transfer Students

To get the most out of the first-year experience and build a sense of community, 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. 

First year, visiting and transfer students living in Brittany, Founders, Goddard, Lipton, Rubin, and Weinstein Halls — also known as "traditional style residence halls" — must begin each semester with a minimum of 225 meals, that is a 225 Flex plan or higher.

First year, visiting and transfer students living in apartment style residence halls must begin each semester with a minimum of 120 meals and must purchase the 120 Flex plan or higher.

Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors

Upperclassmen students in Alumni, Broome, Carlyle Court, Coral Tower, Gramercy Green, Greenhouse, Greenwich, Lafayette, Palladium, Second Street, Senior House, Third Avenue North, University Hall, Stuyvesant Town, and Washington Square Village — known as "apartment style halls" equipped with kitchens may choose not to participate in the meal plan program. These same options apply to upperclassmen living off campus.
