Plan Options

2021-2022

With all the worries of going to college, the last thing you need to do is plan your next meal. Marist Dining Services provides a variety of dining plans offering flexibility and value to meet your needs. These plans are also available for graduate students.

The combination of value, choice, and variety make any one of these plans a great option for dining on campus. A dining plan can be modified by visiting the MyHousing page on My.Marist.edu and clicking My Meal Plan. Dining plan changes are made online and can take up to two business days to process. Any meal swipes remaining in an account on any Dining Plan do not transfer from the fall to spring semester.

The U Pick meal equivalency program allows students more freedom and flexibility with the dining plan. The U Pick meal equivalency program allows students to use a U Pick meal swipe for any item* at any campus retail dining location at a value of up to $10. Any value after $10 can be applied using Thrifty Cash or Marist Money on the Grubhub app. For walk-up service, any value after $10 can be applied using Thrifty Cash, Marist Money, credit/debit or cash. *Exclusions apply to grocery, personal care, bulk and frozen food items. Exclusions subject to change. 

U Pick meal equivalency is available at any campus retail dining location except food trucks and café pop-ups.
  • Cabaret
  • Donnelly Café
  • Steel Plant Garden Café
  • McCann Café
  • Library Brew
  • Hancock Brew (Grubhub pickup)
  • Marketplace (Grubhub delivery)
  • North End Dining (Grubhub pickup and walk-up)
For example, students are welcome to use a U Pick meal swipe to purchase an acai bowl, a snack and a beverage. Ten dollars will be applied to the price of their purchase and the remainder will roll over onto a tender of their choosing between Thrifty Cash or Marist Money on the Grubhub app or Thrifty Cash, Marist Money, credit/debit or cash for walk-up service.

Thrifty Cash is a dollar amount associated with each dining plan that can be used in any campus dining facility (retail or residential). Purchases made using Thrifty Cash are tax exempt. Funds remaining in a Thrifty Cash account transfer from the fall semester to the spring semester only, provided that the student remains enrolled in a dining plan for the spring semester.

Please allow one business day for the transaction to be processed.
