Terms and Conditions

  • Fall/Spring

    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 plan funds is not permitted. By signing up for an account, you agree to receive email notifications regarding your meal plan.

    We have updated our Meal Plan Terms and Conditions for the academic year 2020-21. Should the Stony Brook University campus decide to close unexpectedly due to public health concerns in accordance with state, county, or University mandates and requirements, FSA will offer fair and reasonable reimbursement of the meal plan fee for impacted students as appropriate and based on information available at that time.

    Dining Dollars

    Dining Dollars may be used at any campus dining location. You may also use Dining Dollars to pay the door price at Meal Swipe Locations (East Side Dining and West Side Dining). All dining locations also accept Wolfie Wallet or credit/debit.

    Dining Dollars roll over from Summer to Fall, Fall to Winter or Spring, but not to Summer or the following academic year (Spring to Fall).  The last day to use Dining Dollars is commencement day of the Spring semester. Remaining balances are forfeited.

    Meal Swipes

    Meal Swipes may be used at West Side Dining or East Side Dining regardless of where you live. The choice is yours!

    Meal swipes do not roll over and expire at the end of each semester.  Remaining balances are forfeited.

    Guest Passes

    Unlimited meal plans include Guest Passes which can be used to swipe in a friend or visiting family member at Meal Swipe Locations. Guest passes may be used at West Side Dining and East Side Dining Meal Swipe Locations only.  Guest passes do not roll over and expire at the end of each semester.  Remaining balances are forfeited.

    Meal Exchange

    The meal exchange add-on gives you more flexibility and value to use a meal swipe for preset meal options at retail locations with an unlimited meal plan.

    Meal exchanges do not roll over and expire at the  end of each semester.  Remaining balances are forfeited.

    Requirements for Resident Students

    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.

    Waivers

    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.

    Upgrades, Downgrades and Cancellations

    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.

    If you would like to change your meal plan, you can easily change it on the website prior to arrival to campus. If you request a change after the start of classes, meal plan changes will take effect on the Friday of the request week. Students will be charged for their current meal plan until the meal plan change goes into effect. Once the meal plan is changed, the amount billed to the student account is prorated for the current plan and the remaining weeks on the new plan.

    Lost / Stolen Cards

    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).
