Takeout Meals at Dine-In Locations

Take-Out Meals with SBU Eats Goes Green Containers

Reusable SBU EATS Goes Green take-out containers can be picked up at East or West Side Dine-In locations.

How it Works:

  1. Let the cashier know you wish to use the takeout option upon entry to the dine-in location.
  2. Fill your container with food from East or West Side Dine-In to take on the go. Once you have filled up your takeout container and beverage cup you are required to leave the dining location. Takeout meals are not to be eaten in the dining areas.
  3. After you eat your meal, rinse your container of any leftover food.
  4. Deposit your UNSANITIZED container in a SBU Eats Goes Green Bin located at East or West Side dine-in.
  5. Pick up a SANITIZED container at the register at East or West Side dine-in when using a take-out swipe.

The first container is FREE. Additional containers can be purchased at the register of the Dine-In locations for $5 (Wolfie Wallet can be used).

Students on an unlimited meal plan can use two take-out meals per day.

Lost Cards

If you lost your ID card, please visit the Stony Brook University Campus Card Office at the Stony Brook Union, Suite 207.

To safeguard students’ meal plan accounts, cashiers are not permitted to key in ID numbers without a photo ID. Lost cards must be replaced within 72 hours.

To prevent others from obtaining meals and charging them against a student’s account, lost ID cards must be immediately reported via the web.

NOTE: When you report your card lost, it will put a hold on all of your accounts (Meal Plan and Wolfie Wallet).

Replacing Lost, Stolen or Damaged Campus ID Cards

In the event you need to replace your student ID card, please contact the Campus Card office.

If your ID card is lost, damaged, or no longer functions and is less than four years old, a $25 replacement fee will apply. Please note that this fee will apply to cards that do not appear visibly damaged, as the Campus Card Office cannot attest to what stresses were placed on the card that caused it to malfunction. Our ID cards are designed to last at least four years under normal use and conditions.

There will be no charge for a new ID card related to the following:

  • A name change
  • A title change
  • The first ID card issued
  • A replacement for an expired ID card related to employment
