    If you are on the Wolfie Standard or Wolfie Deluxe meal plan, you may use a Meal Exchange (one per day*) at the following Roth Cafe locations: Subway®, Smash n’ Shake, Savor, Fuze and Cocina Fresca. Each location has a special preset meal exchange menu option you can choose from.

    Don't forget, you can always use your Dining Dollars or Wolfie Wallet funds anytime at Roth Cafe!

    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.

    Commuter Students

    Commuter students are not required to be on a meal plan. If a commuter student selects a commuter or resident meal plan, the same terms and conditions apply.

    Waivers and Medical Exemptions

    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.

    If you are a Jewish student or someone who keeps kosher who wants access to Delancey Street please reach out to Jessica Lemons, Executive Director of Stony Brook Hillel at jessica.lemons@stonybrook.edu

    If you have special dietary needs based on allergies or other medical conditions it is important for you to set up a virtual appointment with our Campus Dining Dietitian. We will evaluate your needs and dietary restrictions to determine whether or not Campus Dining is able to meet your needs. To make an appointment visit the campus dining website.

    Please contact Student Accessibility Support Center for meal plan accommodations. SASC will work collaboratively with the on campus dietitian regarding any dietary concerns. In order to meet your needs it would be best if documentation is submitted by the following dates:

    Incoming new students:

    • May 15 for the Fall Semester
    • December 15 for the Spring Semester

    Upgrades, Downgrades and Cancellations

    Meal Plan funds are non-refundable. Downgrades can be made during the two weeks following the first day Monday-Friday classes begin. The final date to downgrade your meal plan for spring 2024 is Sunday, February 4. Upgrades can be made anytime throughout 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. Meal plans may not be canceled after December 1 for the fall semester and after May 1 for the spring semester.

    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.

    Withdrawing from the University

    Students who withdraw from the University will be billed a prorated portion of the meal plan up to, and including, the official withdrawal date. Pro-rations are calculated on a weekly basis.

    Students who wish to cancel their meal plan because they have moved off-campus or to a cooking building/area in the Residence Halls must notify the Meal Plan Office either in writing to: mealplan@stonybrook.edu or in person during office hours Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm at Faculty Student Association, West Side Dining, 2nd floor, Stony Brook, New York 11794-4460.

    If you are a resident, you must contact and return your key to your Area Office within 48 hours of withdrawing. You are not permitted to remain in campus housing more than 48 hours after your withdrawal/leave of absence has been processed.

    Housing charges and meal plan charges (for students in a room which requires the meal plan) will be prorated based upon the date your key is officially returned and all belongings are removed. No pro ration will be applied if your move-out is after the last day of classes (day before reading day). If you are hospitalized and/or your medical issue prevents you from coming to campus to return your key, please contact the Dean of Students Office at (631) 632-7320 for assistance.

    If you participate in a meal plan that is not mandatory, please cancel your plan by contacting the Meal Plan Office at (631) 632-6517 after you move out. Your meal plan charge will be prorated based on the number of weeks the plan was active and the dollar amount used. Return to housing is prioritized on a space-available basis only if you receive an approved medical leave or military leave and return to housing on your first academic semester back from leave. Housing is not guaranteed or prioritized for any other type of leave.  

    There is an undergraduate semester withdrawal form.
