On-Campus Dining

Spring in New York students living both on and off-campus are welcome at all of NYU’s 13 dining locations. Options include the Kimmel Marketplace, with a variety of international and traditional dining choices, the Kosher Eatery at Weinstein, Starbucks at Faye’s, and Argo Tea Cafe (among many others). Students have the option to enroll in a variety of different meal plans, or to dine at these locations using cash or credit card. Meals plans often include both allotted meals and dining dollars, which work like a debit card in purchasing snacks, meals, and beverages at NYU dining locations.

Students without meal plans also have the option to load money onto their NYUCard using Campus Cash. Campus Cash can be loaded onto your NYUCard at various on-campus locations as well as online, and can be used at the NYU Bookstore, NYU Ticket Central, campus dining halls, and for on-campus laundry and vending machines, as well as at off-campus merchants. A full list of participating merchants is available online.

Of course, there are countless restaurants throughout New York City to keep you full and happy throughout the semester. If you plan to dine on campus and have any special dietary restrictions, please contact dining.services@nyu.edu for more information and to discuss potential accommodations. Check back later this week for a list of New York City-themed books and movies to check out over the holiday break!

Your NYUCard

All NYU student students must get a NYUCard for the Spring semester. Your NYUCard will be your gateway to many things – classrooms, libraries, freeseums, athletic facilities, and great student discounts!

Once you are registered in your Fall courses, you can get your NYUCard. Simply submit a photo online (beginning 12/1) and, once approved by the NYUCard Center, pick it up in person. If submitted and approved by 3:00 PM, you can pick up your card the following business day. The NYUCard Center is located at 7 Washington Place on the corner of Mercer Street. Please note that you must bring a valid photo ID with you to get your card. More information can be found online.

Perhaps most importantly, your NYUCard will grant you access to dining options. Students living on or off-campus can utilize NYU’s 13 dining locations during the semester. Dining halls include traditional buffet-style meals and national brand favorites such as Quiznos, Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, and even Chick-Fil-A!

The University offers a variety of meal plans to make the dining experience easier for students. Information about meal plans for students living both on and off campus can be found here. For more information regarding NYU Dining and Meal Plans, check out the NYU Dining Guide.

In addition to meal plans, your NYUCard can also serve as a debit card with Campus Cash. Campus Cash is a service that allows you to put money onto your card and use it at participating shops, cafes, and restaurants. (It’s also great for doing laundry!) Rather than worry about carrying and budgeting your cash, save time and safely consolidate your money by enrolling in Campus Cash.

As you can see, your NYUCard is a powerful thing! If you have further questions about obtaining your NYUCard, meals plans, or Campus Cash, email us at up.advising@nyu.edu
