Sign Up for an AY 24-25 Dining Plan

February 19, 2024

About Our Dining Plans

Students often have demanding class schedules and the challenge of balancing classwork with internships, part-time jobs, extracurriculars, and so much more. With a Columbia Dining Plan, you'll have delicious and healthy options, even when you're on the run. 

Although plans are not required, they're a great value. What could be better than a hot meal served just the way you like, right when you need it? (Answer: not having to do any dishes! We'll do that for you, too.) 

Take the guesswork and planning out of your meals by signing up for a Dining Plan.

What's New for AY 24-25

EZ Plans have been simplified into two options:

  • EZ 18 offers the highest number of weekly meals plus Flex.
  • EZ 350 offers the highest number of meals, but as the plan is term-based, students have more flexibility about when they can use their meals. This plan also has a larger Flex supplement.

Review Your Options

We offer a variety of Dining Plans to meet the varied needs of our diverse student body.
