Dining Dollars: The New School's Meal Plan
Students who live at Stuyvesant Park, 13th Street, 20th Street, Loeb Hall, and Kerrey Hall at the University Center are automatically enrolled in the Dining Dollars program. The charge for this program is added to the student bill at the beginning of each semester. For more information on the number of Dining Dollars you receive per semester, click on the link above for the residence hall in which you're staying.
Dining Dollars are loaded on your New School ID, or Newcard. They're similar to regular dollars except that they're used only in New School cafeterias. When you are ready to pay, swipe your Newcard at the cash register; the cost of the transaction is deducted from your Dining Dollars account. Under New York State tax law, sponsored meal plans are exempt from sales taxes.
Any money left in your Dining Dollars account at the end of the fall semester rolls forward to the spring semester, but balances remaining at the end of the spring semester are forfeited. Dining Dollars are nonrefundable. If you live in one of these residences and can prove that you have a religious requirement or medical condition, you may be exempted from participation in Dining Dollars. Students who move out of one of these residences during the school year may be granted a partial refund, depending on the circumstances. Refunds are issued by Student Accounts.

Can I Add Money to My Dining Dollars Account?
Dining Dollars can be added only through your student bill when you first move into one of these residences.
However, if you spend all of your Dining Dollars, you can add money to your Newcardcash account at any time during the year by visiting the Newcardcash portal and logging in with your NetID and password. Newcardcash can be used in all New School cafeterias and in some on-campus vending machines, in some dorm laundry machines, and at many local businesses in the Greenwich Village area.
