Terms and Conditions

All undergraduate students who reside in the residence halls and who are in their first or second semester of enrollment at Stony Brook are required to enroll in a resident meal plan, regardless of the residence hall in which they reside. Resident students, who live in a residence hall or area designated as non-cooking, must enroll in a resident meal plan regardless of class year or tenure at Stony Brook.

Meal plan enrollment may be waived on a religious or medical basis only. Request for a waiver must be made in writing to the Campus Dining Registered Dietitian. This must be done prior to, or within two weeks of, moving on campus. Those residents who obtain a meal plan waiver will be required to reside in or relocate to a resident hall/area designated as cooking. A pro-rated weekly charge for a meal plan will result until the waiver is obtained. Any dietary concerns should be directed to the Campus Dining Registered Dietitian at (631) 632-9979.

To prevent others from obtaining meals and charging them against a student’s account, lost cards must be immediately reported in person or via the web. Report your card in person to the Meal Plan or ID Office or at any cash register in any of the Campus Dining locations during business hours. You can reactivate your card at the Meal Plan Office or the ID Office.

All meal plans selected are ANNUAL (fall and spring) agreements. Students are billed for a new meal plan each semester. Meal plans are non-transferable and are for the use of the meal plan holder only. Sharing meal swipes or dining dollars is not permitted. Dining Dollars roll over from fall to spring. Meal swipes reset each week. Meal swipes, block meals, and "weekly meals" do not rollover. The meal plan week begins on Friday and ends on Thursday. The last day to use your Dining Dollars is May 24, 2019 .

Downgrade requests may be submitted up to and including the first 2 weeks of the semester. Please note, during the first 2 weeks of the semester, downgrade requests made Saturday through Thursday will take effect the following Friday.

Your Student Account must be in good standing in order to upgrade or add funds to your meal plan and have it billed to your account.

Because this is an annual agreement, students who withdraw/graduate from the University, or wish to cancel their meal plan because they moved off campus or to a building/area designated as cooking, must notify the Meal Plan Office. Meal plans will be prorated weekly. Otherwise the student will be charged the full amount of the meal plan.

If you are leaving the university and need to cancel your meal plan, you may do so in person or via the web.

The credit will be posted to your Student Account (able to be viewed in SOLAR under Student Financial Services).
