Plan Options for UAlbany Students

Selecting A Meal Plan

The 2020-2021 meal plans are designed to provide maximum flexibility, value and convenience. These meal plans include declining balance funds called Discount Dollars that activate deep discounts at retail dining venues. All resident students are required to be on a meal plan. Meal plans are purchased per semester.

Students can begin signing up for a meal plan on 7/1/21 and will have until 9/3/21 to add/drop/change their meal plan.

For University Apartment & Commuter Students.

The myChoice Meal Plan offers University apartment and commuter students--who are not required to have a meal plan--the opportunity to explore and experience the benefits, variety and convenience of dining on campus with an abridged version of the myFlex Meal Plan. Unlike the myFlex plan, the myChoice plan does not allow additional Discount Dollars to be added and only one myChoice Plan can be purchased per semester.
