 Q: What happens if I do not select a meal plan?

A:If you do not select a meal plan, you will automatically be placed on the Wolfie Standard Plan so that you may eat as soon as you come to campus.  For more information about meal plans, please visit the meal plan website at stonybrook.edu/mealplan.
 

 Q: Can a meal plan be changed once it has been selected?

A: Meal plans can be downgraded at any time during the first two weeks of the semester and upgraded at any time during the semester.  You may do this by visiting the Meal Plan Office at 157 East Side Dining, or by going online to stonybrook.edu/dining.

 Q: How do I get information about different meal plan options?

A: Please note that all new students must be on a meal plan for at least their first two semesters. Visit the meal plan website at stonybrook.edu/mealplan for a list of options.

 

 Q: What happens if a student is too sick to leave his/her room and cannot purchase meals?

A: If a student becomes ill and cannot leave his/her room for meals, s/he must notify his/her Resident Assistant (RA) or Resident Hall Director (RHD).  The RA or RHD will provide the student with a “Sick Tray Request Form” which authorizes someone other than the student to use his or her card. Once this form is completed, the student can have a friend pick up a meal.  A student who is sick for more than 48 hours must be referred to the Student Health Service for written authorization of an extension.

 

 Q: Where can I purchase Halal food?

A: Halal food is available at Halal New York in East Side Dining.
