​Meal Plans

Meal plans are a required part of living in on-campus housing, unless you live in South Campus apartments, which have kitchens. Whether you plan to eat in the dining halls often or just once in a while, there's a plan for just about every preference.

When you're busy, flexibility is key. With your meal plan, you can eat at any of Syracuse's four food courts, six residential dining halls, and 11 campus cafés. Residential dining centers are “all you can eat” with one meal plan swipe, and each plan comes with guest meals for when you have visitors or if you just want to treat a friend.

Meal Plan Eligibility

As is stated in the Terms and Conditions of Student Housing, a meal plan is required for all students living in on-campus residence halls including the Sheraton University Hotel. Students residing in  campus apartments are not required to purchase a meal plan. Various meal plans are available to students based on earned credits/class standing.

SUpercard FOOD Funds

Each meal plan comes with an established amount of FOOD funds. This versatile payment method can be used at various locations on campus, including residential dining halls and campus cafés.
