Meal Plans

New Meal Plan Terms for 2021-22

Unlimited Plan: Students on an unlimited plan can eat in any of the five campus dining centers (Ernie Davis, Shaw, Brockway, Sadler, and Graham) as often as they would like. These plans include 10 guest meals per semester for friends and/or family.

Block Plan: Block plans come with a set number of meals to use at the five campus dining centers each semester. The meals do not roll over to the following semester. Students can swipe in a guest using one of the meals of their block plan.

Meal Plan Dining Dollars: Meal Plan Dining Dollars are only available by purchasing a meal plan that includes these funds. Meal Plan Dining Dollars are accepted at Schine and Goldstein Student Centers, all campus cafés, and all five dining centers. They do not roll over into future semesters, and cannot be replenished once they have been spent. If you would like to add more funds to spend at Food Services locations, you will add ‘CUSE Cash, which can be spent at all locations that Meal Plan Dining Dollars are accepted (see below).

‘CUSE Cash: ‘CUSE Cash is a declining balance cash account that provides access to food, goods, and services through the SU I.D card. This account must be established each academic year. ‘CUSE Cash can be spent at nearly every point of sale on campus: Food Services locations, vending machines, the Schine Box Office, the Stadium Box Office, campus convenience stores, concession stands and shops at the Stadium, and on all products in the Syracuse University Campus Store. ‘CUSE Cash account balances carry over from fall semester to spring semester. After Commencement day, unused ‘CUSE Cash balances will be credited to student bursar accounts.
