All students residing in traditional residence halls are required to participate in the Carte Blanche Plan.
Returning sophomore students residing in college housing are assigned to a campus dining plan based on their residence location. Residents of Midrise are required to participate in the Carte Blanche Plan. All sophomore students residing in a residence facility with a kitchen are pre-enrolled in the Apartment 18 Meals Plus $150 Thrifty Cash plan, may opt to enroll in any other dining plan, but must remain at minimum in the Apartment 18 Meal Plan.
Junior and Senior Students
Returning junior and senior students residing in college housing with kitchen facilities are pre-enrolled in the Apartment 18 Meals Plus $150 Thrifty Cash plan. Students may opt out of this plan or enroll in any of the other dining plan options. (This also applies to any student assigned by the college to reside at the Residence Inn).
Students have the option to change their dining plan selection within certain parameters according to their residence location as determined by the College. Dining Plan changes must be made at the Office of Housing and Residential Life by the second Friday of the semester. Should a student withdraw from college housing, the cost of his or her dining plan will be refunded accordingly.
If a student enrolled in a Resident Dining Plan is sick and/or injured and is unable to eat in the dining hall, a friend will be able to obtain a meal for the student from the main dining hall. The friend of the sick and/or injured student must pick up a meal by bringing the meal swipe card (Marist ID) of the person who is sick to the north cashier station of the main dining hall (closest to the Cabaret) and inform the cashier that he/she wants to sign up for a sick tray meal. The cashier will require the Marist ID of the person who is sick as well as the Marist ID of the student picking up the meal. Once both cards are swiped, a meal, packed in to-go containers will be provided.
Campus Dining Services accommodates students with special dietary needs. Any student requiring accommodations should contact the General Manager of Marist Dining Services at (845) 575-5114.
Thrifty Cash is the debit portion of the College dining plan that can be used in any campus dining facility (retail or residential). Funds remaining in a Thrift Cash account transfer from the fall semester to the spring semester only, provided that the student remains enrolled in a dining plan. At the end of the fall semester, any funds remaining in the account may be used at campus retail locations provided the student is registered for a Marist College winter intersession class. Marist senior students cleared for graduation may use their Thrifty Cash funds during senior week. At the end of the spring semester, any funds remaining in the account do not carry forward to the next semester and will be forfeited. Students may add funds to their Thrifty Cash account at the Student Financial Services office located in Donnelly Hall, 200.
The Dining Hall and Retail Shops accept Cash, Credit, Marist Money and Thrifty Cash.
