As is stated in the terms and conditions of student housing, a meal plan is required for all students living in on-campus residence halls. Students residing in campus apartments are not required to purchase a meal plan.
All University meal plans include a SUpercard FOOD account which can be added to in $25 increments via MySlice or the GET app. FOOD funds carry over from the fall semester to the spring semester. There are no refunds, transfers, or carryovers of unused FOOD funds. SUpercard FOOD is a declining balance account that allows students to use their University I.D. card to purchase food items in the following on-campus locations:
- Residential dining centers
- Schine and Goldstein Dining
- Goldstein Alumni and Faculty Center Restaurant
- University convenience stores
- Stadium concessions stands
- Vending machines
- Grubhub delivery
Meal plan and FOOD purchases made by anyone not currently enrolled at Syracuse University are subject to 8% New York State sales tax.
