Meal Plan: Off-Campus and Commuter Students

Iona College Off-Campus and Commuter Students not residing in College housing are invited to participate in one of the optional Off-Campus and Commuter Student Meal Plans.

On average, off-campus and commuter students who had a meal plan during the 2016-17 academic year spent about 875 points during the two semesters.

Why should commuter and off-campus students get a meal plan?

  • Students do not pay tax in on-campus eateries when they use a meal card.
  • Most off-campus and commuter students are on campus for at least one or two meals a day.
  • Iona has great dining options both on-campus and with our off-campus dining partners.
  • It's more convenient than carrying cash!
  • Students and parents/guardians can add money to their meal plan at any time using the online payment system. Please note that orders will be processed the next business day.

Please read the Meal Plan Overview before signing up for a meal plan so you understand the dining options and restrictions!

Off-Campus and commuting students may choose from one of the following meal plan options:

  • Gold Plan: For $500, open a meal plan with 500 points (or a multiple of 500 points) and receive an additional 25 points for each 500 increment. Increments can be added at any time during the semester, but must be added in the full 500 amount to gain the additional 25. The meal plan enables students to choose from three on-campus sites as well as 20 off-campus eateries.
    Example: Student Pays $500, student has 525 points available to spend
      Student Pays $1000, student has 1050 points available to spend 
  • Silver Plan: Open a meal plan with $250. Students may add to their plan in $50 increments throughout the academic year. The meal plan enables students to choose from three on-campus sites as well as 20 off-campus eateries.
  • Maroon Plan: Open a meal plan account for as little as $100, and students may add to the plan in $50 increments throughout the academic year. The meal plan enables students to choose from three on-campus sites as well as 20 off-campus eateries.
