Your Geneseo Meal Plan

How Your Meal Plan Works

A declining balance system allows you to eat from any of our restaurants on campus, including all retail locations and the pay one price restaurants.  Unlike other campuses, you are not restricted to certain locations or time periods - you can eat where you want, when you want!  When you make a purchase from any of the dining locations, the total of your purchase is deducted from your meal plan, similar to a debit card.  It is the responsibility of the student to balance their budget, and we provide tools to assist - the balance of your meal plan is always shown when a purchase is made, and can be compared to a chart showing the ideal balance for that day.

Potential Savings based on discounted price for pay-one-price meals combined with tax savings

The Overhead Fee is operating expenses deducted from the balance.  The cost is taken to keep discounted pricing in the pay one price restaurants.

Meal Plan Dollars can be used in any of the on-campus Restaurants & Cafes, the Big Tree Inn, Uncle Vito's Pizza Delivery and Sports Concessions.

Flex Dollars can be used anywhere that Meal Plan Dollars are accepted as well as at all campus vending machines.

Meal Plans Save You Money

Meal plan holders receive a savings of over 33% every time they dine in one of the two pay-one-price restaurants on campus.  These restauants are conveniently located amongst the residence halls and are open every day for dinner as well as for brunch on the weekends.  

Geneseo meal plans are also tax-exempt, meaning that you do not pay tax at the register, saving you 8% on each purchase.  

When you combine the tax savings with the pay-one-price discounts, your savings can be tremendous!

Meal Plan Roll-Over

Because the meal plans are tax exempt, they are bound by certain tax laws.  As such, meal plans are not refundable and are for the personal immediate consumption to whom the meal plan is issued.  Meal plans do not roll over from year to year, so any money left on the plan at the end of the semester is forfeited.

A set amount of meal plan money may roll over from semester to semester.  For platinum, gold and silver meal plans: up to $50 of combined unused meal plan and flex dollars at the end of the Fall semester will be rolled over to the Spring meal plan.  For off-campus and off-campus express plans, up to $25 of combined unused meal plan and flex dollars at the end of the Fall semester will be rolled over to the Spring meal plan.  For rollover to occur, meal plan must be purchased within 2 weeks of the 1st day of classes of the Spring semester.  Refunds will not be issued.

 

How To Sign Up

Your meal plan is included on your college tuition bill.  When you get your bill, the lowest mandatory meal plan is already preselected as your default plan (Gold for first year students, Silver for returning students living on campus.)  If you would like to upgrade or make a change to your meal plan, simply adjust your bill accordingly.  After the semester begins, meal plan adjustments can be made in the CAS Business Office located in Blake A 108 (585-245-5648).
