Dining services at Manhattan College offers something for everyone, from smoothies and salads to savory pasta and brick oven pizza. Our dining provider, Gourmet Dining, places a strong emphasis on local and sustainable food, through the use of local products from regional farmers and suppliers, including produce from the campus garden.

Meal Plans

All students who live in campus housing are required to have a meal plan. Students who live off campus can opt to buy a meal plan but aren't required to have one. However, if you live off campus but eat on campus at least twice a week, you'll save money with a meal plan due to the savings offered in the commuter meal plans. 

All plans feature:

  • 10% bonus on purchases of $100 or more Dining Dollars
  • 10% discount each time you spend your Dining Dollars
  • Ability to purchase additional Dining Dollars with a 20% savings for all incremental purchases of $100 or more

Jasper Card

The Jasper Card is your key to Manhattan College. Use it to access campus buildings and pay for lunch, whether you're eating in the cafeteria or at one of our off-campus partner restaurants. 

It includes a debit card accepted at the bookstore and all campus dining locations, plus certain vending machines and various local merchants. You can easily use and reload funds on your Jasper Card throughout the year.
