Student Summer Meal Plan 2019

As you begin to consider plans for summer employment, summer programs, and/or opportunities in summer research at Vassar, your meal plan should factor into your decision. Students residing on campus this summer are required to purchase one of the four Block Meal Plans as noted below.

Summer Meal Plan:
The effective dates for the Block Meal Plan are May 28–August 9. Students are encouraged to choose the plan that best aligns with your dining habits and also accommodates your work schedule. The deadline for choosing a meal plan is May 1.

Block Meal Plans
200 meals: $1,200 ($6.00/meal)
100 meals: $700 ($7.00/meal)

Following the initial block meal purchase period (by May 1), there will be a one-time opportunity to purchase additional blocks of 10 meals at $10.00 each on July 1 from 8:30am–4:30pm at the CIS Service Desk.
