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

Students with special dietary requirements
If you have special dietary requirements, Cornell Dining can accommodate you. In order to have special meals prepared, you must first register online with Student Disability Services (SDS), who will review your medical documentation and refer you to Cornell Dining's staff nutritionist.
Prepackaged kosher meals are available. If you wish to request kosher meals, please call 607.254.2998 before you arrive on campus. You may pre-order kosher meals through the dining supervisor or door checker on duty. If you order kosher meals but do not pick them up, you will be charged an additional fee.
Vegetarian and vegan foods are always available. Veggie burgers, hummus, and beans are offered daily.
Your Cornell ID card
You'll get your Cornell ID card at check-in when you arrive on campus. Your Cornell ID card identifies you as a current member of the Cornell community and should be carried at all times. You'll use it for a variety of services at Cornell, including an electronic door key, eating in the dining halls, and doing laundry.
Summer Bucks account
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.
This is a use or lose account, so we recommend that you are conservative with the amount of money you add to the account. Funds are non-refundable and non-transferable.
