Which plan is right for me?
Consider your daily routine. Do you eat three meals a day? Will your class schedule, studying, extracurricular activities, and social events interfere with dining? Will you miss dinner due to employment or evening classes? Anticipating the answers to these and similar questions will help you to select the meal plan that best fits your lifestyle.
How can I add or change my meal plan?
Please contact Student Accounts at 315-228-7812 between June 1 and the first day of classes to add or change a meal plan. Fall semester meal plans will automatically carry over into spring unless changes are submitted before the deadline.
What are Flex Dollars and ‘Gate Cash?
Flex Dollars: These add flexibility to your dining options by allowing you to spend them like cash at Frank, the Coop, and the Library Café. As an additional value, flex dollars are tax exempt and unused dollars carry over from fall to spring semesters. However, unused flex dollars expire on the last day of the academic calendar year and do not roll over to the following academic year. A $25.00 per-day spending limit is applied. Please inform your cashier you wish to pay with flex dollars before making the purchase.
‘Gate Cash: This is a convenient way to purchase meals at any campus dining location, and even many locations in the community. Food can be purchased a la carte with cash or your 'Gate Card at the Hieber Café or Coop, and full meals can be purchased at the Cutting Edge Bistro or Frank Dining Hall. ‘'Gate cash can also be used for purchases at the Bookstore, C-store, mailroom, and to operate laundry machines, and library copiers. 'Gate Cash carries over from fall to spring and as well as between academic years. You can add additional funds online.
What if I have a food allergy, a special diet, or require a sick tray?
Please contact Health Services and Dining Services.
Frank Dining Hall offers “all you care to eat dining” with accommodating hours.
Meal plans are based on a seven-day week. The week starts on Friday and ends on Thursday. Please note that unused meals do not roll over to the following week
