Meal Plans

SUNY Cortland requires all students living on-campus to participate in a meal plan — but all students can sign up to enjoy the convenience of dining on campus. Meal Plans are easy to use and give you access to 12 dining locations all around campus 7 days a week.

You can supplement your meal plan by adding money to a Connections account for use on or off-campus.


On-campus Students

To get the most out of the first-year experience and build a sense of community, SUNY Cortland requires all students living in residence halls (excluding West Campus apartments and the Leadership House), irrespective of academic status, to participate in an On-Campus Meal Plan. If living on campus, you will automatically be assigned the Silver Plus Plan that can be adjusted on myRedDragon. To change your On-Campus Meal Plan, please follow these instructions.

All On-Campus Meal Plans offer unlimited access to Neubig and the Bistro, our 2 residential dining units.

Plan Name Cost Per Semester Unlimited Access Dining Dollars Per Semester Guest Passes
Platinum Plus $2620 YES $475 5
Gold Plus $2530 YES $375 5
Silver Plus* $2440 YES $275 5
Bronze Plus $2350 YES $175 5
Copper Plus $2230 YES $50 5

*Silver Plus Plan is the default plan automatically assigned to all students living in on-campus residence halls.
Students living in Cheney and DeGroat are recommended to purchase the Gold Plus or Platinum Plus plans.

 


Off-campus and West Campus Students

While Meal Plans are not mandatory for off-campus students, we recommend purchasing a Meal Plan that meets your needs in order to save if you plan on dining on-campus. Follow these step-by-step instructions to purchase an Off-Campus Meal Plan.

All plans are tax-free - that means you save 8% compared to purchasing these meals out of pocket!

We offer 3 Off-Campus Meal Plan Options:

1. Meals per Semester Plans
