Our Anytime Dining Plan allows participants to access the Dining Hall as often as they would like without worrying about counting swipes. As an Anytime Dining participant, you have unlimited access to the Dining Hall throughout the semester with the ability to enjoy anything from a cup of coffee to a full meal upon entry. This plan includes $75 Thrifty Cash and three Pick 3 Meal Swap exchanges to be used at designated campus dining locations. In addition, there is Preferred Pricing available for guests in the Dining Hall.

The combination of value, choice, and variety make any one of these plans a great option for dining on campus. If our Anytime Dining plan is not exactly what you are looking for, consider these options. Meal swipes on each flex dining plan can be used to eat in the Dining Hall or take a pre-packaged meal from several of our retail locations (Pick 3). 

A dining plan can be modified by visiting the MyHousing page on and clicking MyMeal 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.

Marist Faculty and Staff play a significant and important role in a student's success at college. Our dining facilities offer great spaces on campus to connect with students. Need to meet with a fellow faculty or staff member? Consider meeting them at one of our many campus cafes over a cup of fair-trade coffee and a delicious Simply to Go entree, made fresh daily.  

Your 15 or 30 Dining Plan gives you access to Marist's nationally ranked dining hall or enjoy premium meals at campus retail locations under the Pick 3 Meal Swap program (North End Dining, Donnelly Cafe, Hancock Cafe, The Cabaret, Steel Plant Garden Cafe, McCann Cafe and Marketplace). These plans are convenient and offer great value. You don't have to worry about carrying cash or swiping your card! If you dine on campus at least once per week, then these plans are for you. 

To purchase a plan, stop by the Murray Student Center Dining Hall (Cabaret side) to complete an enrollment form. The purchaser will receive a dining plan card after making full payment by cash, check, credit card or Marist Money. Checks can be made payable to Sodexo Dining Services. Plans are non-transferable and non-refundable.

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. 

To add money to your Thrifty Cash account online: 
Visit the MyHousing page on account to add funds in $25 increments, with a maximum addition of $100 per transaction. In order to request Thrifty Cash, please ensure that you have a credit on your student account, resulting from excess financial aid or recent payment. Without a credit on your student account, Student Financial Services will be unable to process your request. Funds can be added to a student account through the electronic billing portal by making a one-time payment to the student's tuition account. Please allow one business day for the transaction to be processed.
