Student Meal Plan

Student Dinner Meal Plan will only offer Grab & Go options and there will be limited seating provided in 50 Haven Ave. Ballroom. Student meal plan serves dinner three times a week in Ballroom. Dinner includes hot entrée options, salad bowl, soup, dessert and choice of beverage.

Please remember that under current New York City law, you will be required to show proof of vaccination if you will be eating indoors in the 50 Haven Ballroom. We are asking students to download the New York State Excelsior Pass or NYC COVID Safe App to help speed up the process as you enter the ballroom. You can also show a photo or hard copy of your official vaccination record to a Faculty Club representative.
