Cornell Dining has earned the reputation of offering the finest dining program in the Ivy League. It owes its success, in part, to a recognition of student diversity. You'll find a wide selection of foods at breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day of the week.

Your Cornell ID card is your meal ticket

Your Cornell ID card, which you'll receive at Summer College check-in, will identify you as a participant in the meal plan. Be sure to bring it with you to the dining hall.

What if I have special dietary requirements?

To have special meals prepared, you must first register online with Student Disability Services, which will review your medical documentation and refer you to Cornell Dining's staff nutritionist. For instructions, see Students with disabilities.

Prepackaged kosher meals can be ordered in advance through the dining supervisor or door checker on duty.

Vegetarian and vegan options are available at all meals.

Questions? Contact Cornell Dining.

What about snacks?

You or your parents/guardians can put money on your Cornell ID card to purchase water and snacks in many vending machines on campus or at Bear Necessities in Robert Purcell Community Center through a Summer Bucks account. You can set up this account once you're on campus. Please note that funds are non-refundable and non-transferable.
