Cornell Dining meal plans are designed to make your life easier while providing convenient, healthy, and delicious options. Why apply for a meal plan?

Convenience - The best meal of the day is just a few minutes away with about 30 dining eateries campus-wide.

Variety - You can't beat our menu options, with everything from sushi and Grab-n-Go sandwiches, to hearty home-cooked and international entrees, daily kosher menus, and plenty of vegan and vegetarian options.

Flexibility - Big Red Bucks (BRBs) are funds placed in a declining-balance account when you enroll in a meal plan, offering great flexibility. Each BRB equals $1 and can be used to make tax-free food purchases on campus, when and where you want.

You may enroll in a meal plan at any time. Apply using the links below!
