With all of the worries of college, the last thing you need to worry about is where your next meal is coming from. That's why we're here! New Paltz Dining Services can accommodate all of your food service needs with fresh food and great taste. 

We offer three comprehensive dining plans to all residential and commuter students. With a diverse array of restaurants and cafes conveniently located across campus, these meal plans offer flexibility, value and variety for the busy, on-the-go student.

Plan A (Value) $2,400

  • The Value Plan offers unlimited access to Peregrine Dining Hall. Come and go when you want, as often as you want and eat as much as you want. 
  • This plan also includes $300 Dining Dollars per semester and 5 exchanges in retail dining locations per week. 
Plan B (Combo) $2,500
  • The Combo Plan offers 125 meals per semester at Peregrine Dining Hall along with $1,000 Dining Dollars per semester and 3 exchanges in retail dining locations per week. 
  • If you enjoy the balance between dining in for a full meal and picking up food between classes, this may be the best plan for you!
Plan C (Freedom) $2,500 
  • The Freedom Plan offers 75 meals per semester at Peregrine Dining Hall. 
  • This plan also includes $1,500 Dining Dollars per semester and 3 exchanges in retail dining locations per week.
A meal exchange included with a meal plan allows a student to exchange a meal swipe for a select meal option at a retail dining location. Retail dining locations which accept meal exchanges are the Student Union Building, Element93 and Sweets & Treats Bakery. Look for the meal exchange option on our menus. The meal exchanges included in the Combo (B) and Freedom (C) meal plans are deducted from the total meal swipe amount per semester. For example, if you have 75 meal swipes and use 3 meal exchanges, you now have 72 swipes left for the semester.  The meal exchanges in the Value (A) meal plan is replenished each week.
