Meal Plan

Dining on-campus is an integral part of the NYU Abu Dhabi student experience. All undergraduate students have a meal plan, which may be redeemed for full-service meals, snacks, beverages, and basic grocery items. There are two ways to spend: meal swipes and Campus Dirhams.

Students receive Campus Dirhams as part of their meal plans. Campus Dirhams are deposited bi-weekly into student accounts and may be redeemed at a variety of dining venues on campus. An additional one-time allocation of Campus Dirhams is deposited at the start of each semester to ensure students can make up-front purchases.
