Types of Plans
How do I purchase a meal plan?
The easiest way to purchase a meal plan is via the website. You can also purchase a meal plan by going to the FSA Services Office at 157 East Side Dining.
Is Wolfie Wallet part of the meal plan?
No. Wolfie Wallet is a campus prepaid declining balance debit account encoded on your campus ID. It is a safe and convenient way to make food purchases from on and off campus merchants, make purchases from campus stores and vending machines, mail packages in the residential mailroom, and utilize print and copy services.

I take classes on both sides of campus, what meal plan is best for me?
Dine-In Meal Swipes can only be used at West Side Dining and East Side Dining, but you may use Dining Dollars on east campus.
If you are not required to be on a meal plan, you can select the prepaid Dining Dollars budget plan which can be used on at the hospital or Health Sciences on east campus in addition to all of the dining venues on west campus. To open a prepaid Dining Dollars budget plan, simply add funds to your card online.
If you are a Health Sciences student and would like to have a dual meal plan, bring your student ID to the FSA Services Office (East Side Dining Room 157) and complete the Dual Meal Plan Agreement form. You may also request a dual meal plan online. Your meal plan cannot be used at Starbucks at University Hospital.
How were the different meal plans chosen?
The meal plans were created based on Stony Brook students’ eating patterns as well as financial affordability. Our goal was to create meal plans that would fit the needs of all students.
