NYU requires all first-year, transfer and visiting students living in NYU Housing to participate in a Meal Plan — but all students can sign up to enjoy the convenience of dining on campus. Meal Plans are easy to use and give you access to dining locations all around campus.

First Year, Transfer and Visiting 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.
