Instructions for Adding a Meal Plan:

Self-Service Instructions
Log into MySlice, navigate to your housing and meal plan self-service portal and select ‘Meal Plans & ‘Cuse Cash’ from the left navigation menu.

Select ‘Dining Plans’ and then ‘Purchased Meal Plans’ and click the semester to choose the correct term.

Click on the ‘Change My Meal Plans’ bar, then select the meal plan you are looking to add by clicking the circle next to it.

Select ‘Purchase Meal Plan’ to complete your transaction.

Eligibility requirements must be met for meal plan options to display. If you do not see the plan choice you are looking for, review the eligibility requirements page. If you are eligible and the plan is not displaying as an option, email our office at housing@syr.edu.

Adding a Meal Plan - During the Semester
If you are looking to add a meal plan after the final deadline (last day to lower meal plans) has passed, then you must submit your request by form. Self-service portal requests are no longer permitted.
