Dear Student,

Between classes, studying, going to work and your social life, we know it’s hard to find time to get affordable, well-balanced, convenient meals, but we are here to help! Dining Services is dedicated to providing a variety of nutritional items for our students every time they dine on campus.

We offer an assortment of meal plans that have been created with commuter student feedback and flexibility in mind, tailored to specifically fit a commuter’s unique lifestyle. Whatever your budget or dining habits, there’s something for everyone. Enjoy a handcrafted drink from our full Starbucks, a vegan entrée from Innovation Kitchen or a personal pizza from 500 Degrees in our newly renovated UC Dining Hall.

With a meal plan, you’ll get to eat what you want, when you want and how you want! Our dining locations offer a large variety of quality meals, nutritional snacks and sweet treats in several locations on campus. When you purchase your meals, snacks and drinks through a meal plan, you save sales tax on every purchase. Having a meal plan also offers convenience: You can dine on campus before, between or after classes—and without losing your parking space! Meal plans are loaded right onto your Adelphi ID card so you can swipe and go, and checking your balance can be done at any dining register on campus or through your AU2GO app.

Dining Services is also excited to introduce improvements to the Transact Mobile Ordering app for the upcoming year. Meal plan holders will be able to earn points for every dollar spent on campus dining. These points may be redeemed at our new pop-up rewards store for prizes that are available only to students who have a meal plan. You will also receive exclusive access to dining incentives, such as limited-time offers, meal deals and mobile punch cards within the app.

Below are the 2021–2022 Commuter Meal Plans. Plans may be purchased by visiting Dining Service’s website DineOnCampus.com/Adelphi on the Meal Plan Purchasing Page under the Meal Plans tab. Panther Dollars can also be added on to a meal plan at any time and can be purchased the same way. Please note that a minimum of $25 must be added the first time you add Panther Dollars to your account.
