Meal Plan: Residential Students

Resident students in Loftus, Rice, Conese and Hales Halls, the Apartments at Eastchester and the North Avenue Residence Hall, all participate in the full meal plan offered at Iona College. The meal plan is included in Room and Board charges for resident students. Participation in the full meal plan is mandatory for all on-campus residents and is part of your on-campus housing contract.

Full meal plan participants receive 1,943 points per semester. The meal plan points are divided into two declining balance flexible accounts.

Full meal plan participants will receive 1,143 in Chartwells points each semester. Chartwells points (dollars) can be used on campus in:

  • Vitanza Commons at Spellman Hall
  • LaPenta Student Union Marketplace
  • Starbucks on lower-level of LaPenta Student Union

Food and beverages purchased at College eateries with a meal plan are not subject to N.Y. State sales tax.

The second account is to be used at participating off-campus restaurants. Full meal plan participants will receive 800 points per semester to be used at all 20 participating off-campus restaurants and the on-campus eateries. Food and beverages purchased at the off-campus locations are subject to N.Y. State sales tax.

Points which remain unspent at the end of the fall semester, roll over to the spring semester. Any points unspent at the end of the spring semester are forfeited. The allocated points cannot be interchanged between campus and North Avenue accounts.

If you run out of points on your meal card, you may add points by purchasing one of the meal plans below:

  • 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 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.
