2020 - 2021 MEAL PLANS

View 2021-2022 Plans

  • New Resident Students

    New Students

    All  new students in their first or second semester at Stony Brook are required to be on an unlimited meal plan.

    New students are going through a transition living away from home for the first time, making new friends, deciding on their book buying options, and learning to manage their time with classes, homework and social activities. When new students are on a plan with “unlimited meals” they don’t have to worry about budgeting Dining Dollars.

    Need to change your meal plan? Downgrades can be made during the first 2 weeks of the semester. Upgrades can be made anytime throughout the semester. You may  request meal plan changes using our online form.

  • Returning Resident Students

    Returning Students

    Returning students who have  completed at least two semesters at Stony Brook may choose from the plans below.

    Any student living in a residence hall which is not a “cooking building” is required to select one of the resident meal plans offered by Campus Dining. This requirement has been in place for many years and it was established to avoid health and safety issues in the residence halls. If no plan is selected by the start of the semester, the student will be automatically placed on the  Wolfie Standard Plan.
