We understand the dynamics of student life
One day you need to grab a quick bite on the way to class and the next you want to enjoy dinner with friends. We've create a variety of options to allow you to dine according to your lifestyle and schedule. The common thread, of course, is that you will always enjoy fresh, healthy and delicious food served in a welcoming environment.
There's a plan to suit almost every need, include 3 plans for First-Year students and 11 plans options for Upperclass students.
To help our new students make a smooth and healthy transition to campus living, First-Year students are required to enroll in a Dining Plan.
Dining plans are convenient and a great value for Upperclass, GS, and Graduate students, but are not required.
Rosie Fernandez is responsible for managing the selection and changing of Dining Plans. Rosie can answer questions or provide guidance and recommendations based on your individual needs.

Choosing A Plan
Signing up for a Dining Plan is easy, but that doesn't mean you should rush through the process. Take a little time to think about your eating habits, your schedule for the upcoming semester, and any special dietary needs you may have so that you make the best choice for you.
Dining Plan Highlights
Below are key features of all our Dining Plans, providing you with options to match your lifestyle and eating habits.
Each plan includes a certain number of meals per week or per term for use at one of our three main dining halls, John Jay Dining Hall, Ferris Booth Commons, and JJ's Place.
