We offer balanced and nutritious meals on and off campus, with a selection of contemporary dining locations. 


Dining Plan Overview 

All first year and second year students are required to enroll in a dining plan. Dining Services provides a variety of plans so that students can select the best option to accommodate their needs. Each plan offers a set number of meal swipes and Wavebuck$, which can be used at on-campus dining locations such as the Dining Room at the Malkin Sacks Commons, the Green Wave Grille, and the numerous food retail options in the Lavin-Bernick Center Food Court. Plans also include NOLAbuck$, which are retail dollars to be spent at off-campus locations.
