About CAS

About CAS

Campus Auxiliary Services, known as CAS on campus, is a not-for-profit company dedicated to serving the SUNY Geneseo campus. We are passionate about Geneseo—the community, the college, and the individuals that make up the campus. We provide several nonacademic services to SUNY Geneseo. While mostly known for our dining program, we also provide catering, the campus bookstore, laundry, vending, ID services, refuse, recycling, and a host of other services. Basically, we take care of the members of the campus community so that they can focus on why they're here—academics. Settle into your new home at Geneseo and allow CAS to help make the transition as seamless as possible.

CAS Board of Directors

CAS is governed by a Board of Directors that consists of 14 members, 5 of which are current SUNY Geneseo students. Together, the Board of Directors helps to shape CAS policies such as the annual budget, meal plan prices and policies, corporate mission, terms and conditions of employment, and the development of long-range plans for operations and investments.
