Columbia Dining Introduces New Dining Plans for Students Attending Summer Term A and B

We are excited to share that Columbia Dining will operate during Summer 2021 Term A and B! When completing the Columbia University Housing application, students who will attend Summer Term A or Summer Term A and B may choose to sign up for one of the Dining Plans outlined below.

Editor's note:

Updated Tuesday, April 13: Plans have been updated from the original posting as plans for campus operations during the summer have evolved.

How it Works

Dining will be closed from Saturday, April 24 through Tuesday, April 27 to prepare for the Summer Term.

While we refresh operations, students who plan to be on campus can add Flex to their account to cover meals. We encourage students to support local businesses during this time. During the month of April, students can purchase $50 in Flex for just $45.

During Check-In, meals will be pick-up only from Wednesday, April 28 through Sunday, May 2. Students moving to campus who need to observe the gateway quarantine will receive meal delivery service during this time. Service in John Jay Dining Hall begins on May 3 with the official start of Summer Term. Our on-campus café, Blue Java Lerner, will open on Monday, May 3 and will operate from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
