On campus tours, everyone tries to ask really responsible questions: who are my faculty mentors? What are the library hours during finals? But we know one of the biggest questions is how is the food?
One thing we can promise is you’ll find a lot of options. From pizza at the Hub to tofurkey tacos at Terra Ve to the all-you-can-eat smorgasbord at the Dining Hall (D-Hall). Plus, there’s Starbucks.
All resident students—with the exception of those who live in on-campus apartments—are required to purchase a meal plan. However, like most things at Purchase, the parameters of your meal plan are flexible. Meal plans are primarily intended to be used in our all-you-care-to-eat Dining Hall, but can be used at any retail location on campus.
We want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to dine in a safe environment on campus. If you have a food allergy, or dietary concern that requires accommodations, please reach out to our Office of Disability Resources.

Purchase Dining Services offers nutritional information, wellness tips, and suggestions for “brain foods” on their website. You can also browse menus and check out our meat-free, nut-free, and dairy-free options.
