Selecting A Meal Plan

The 2022-2023 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.

Budgeting your Discount Dollars

Meal Plan Options for SUNY Poly Students click here.

Required for all resident freshmen. Available to all resident non-freshmen, University apartment and commuter students.
 
Freshmen will automatically be assigned myUnlimited  Meal Plan #1, but can choose myUnlimited Meal Plan #2, during the add/change period (the first 10 business days of the semester). The myUnlimited Meal Plan will allow for unlimited meal swipes during every scheduled meal period/7 days a week at Indigenous and State Quad dining rooms. Declining balance funds called Discount Dollars are included with the myUnlimited Meal Plan and can be used in Campus Center retail venues where they will activate deep discounts off the menu board pricing. Up to $500 additional Discount Dollars can be added to your myUnlimited Meal Plan each semester.

For all resident non-freshmen, University apartment and commuter students.

Resident non-freshmen will automatically be assigned myFlex Meal Plan #2, but can choose any of the other myFlex or myUnlimited Meal Plans during the add/change period (the first 10 business days of the semester). The myFlex Meal Plan, with five (5) options and the ability to add up to $500 additional Discount Dollars to your plan each semester, was designed so you have the freedom to eat when you want and where you want, with no restrictions at our Campus Center, resident dining rooms, and satellite retail dining locations.

For University apartment and 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 at any Campus Center location, resident dining room, and satellite retail dining location. Unlike the myFlex or myUnlimited plans, the myChoice plan does not allow additional Discount Dollars to be added and only one myChoice Plan can be purchased per semester.
