All students who live on campus are required to buy a residential meal plan unless they have satisfied the residency requirement and live in a town house or a Lehman apartment. If you do not select a meal plan, you will be assigned the 14 Meal plan (14weekly meals and 100 Flex Credits) and billed accordingly.
All campus meal plans are designed to provide a broad range of dining services for our campus customers. In addition to the cost of ingredients and service labor the meal plans must also cover over-head & program expense that have been approved by the PACES Board of Directors.
When choosing what plan is best for you think about how much time you expect to spend away from campus as well as your eating habits:
Our meal plans contain two accounts: Meals & Flex.
Flex is a declining balance account that can be used at any dining location at any time. It is allocated per semester.
Meals are allocated per week or semester (depending on the plan) and may be used for access to Lehman Dining Center or as a $6 ($6.25 in 2013-14) credit towards purchases made at selected campus restaurants. When meals are allotted per week, you won't have to worry about using them all up before the semester is over.
Meal plan selection is subject to review and audit by the SUNY Card office and is based on room assignments and completion of the residency requirement. Students who are determined to be in contradiction with these terms will be defaulted to the 14 Meal Plan (14weekly meals and 100 Flex Credits)
