ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • New! Due to significant construction at the Campus Center, Meal Trades can no longer be accepted at any retail venue. Students can only use a meal swipe at one of the five (5) all-you-care-to-eat residence hall dining rooms and Munch Money at retail venues. 
  • Every meal plan includes kosher, vegetarian and halal options at no additional cost.
  • All meal plans and Munch Money are exempt from NYS sales tax, and therefore cannot be used to purchase guest meals, and cannot be refunded, changed or transferred after the add/drop period, approximately the 10th business day of each semester. 
  • Meals do not carry over from semester to semester. Munch Money balances roll over from summer to fall, and fall to spring, if a student remains enrolled. Any Munch Money remaining at the end of the spring semester will be forfeited. 
  • All students on a meal plan can purchase additional Munch Money at any time (no minimum required). 
  • Meal plans are activated when residence quads open for occupancy and end when quads close. However, during times when the all-you-care-to-eat quad dining rooms are closed but the residence quads are open, Munch Money can be used in retail locations. 
  • If you need additional help deciding which meal plan is best for you, visit www.albany.edu/uas or call UAS at 518-442-5950.
  • The last day to add/change fall meal plans is September 10, 2015.
