Meal Plan News (2020 – 2021 Academic Yr) – updated June 15, 2020

As you may have heard the majority of CSUN classes will continue to be provided through virtual instruction this Fall.  Although no final decisions have yet been made in regards to housing and meal plan, please note we’re working on making decisions with guidance from the CSU Chancellor’s Office, and from LA County Public Health officials. We would greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through these new health guidelines. Your health and safety are as important to us as your success as a student. So please continue to check this website often for Meal Plan updates.

How Do I Apply For A Meal Plan?

Annual Meal Plans (Fall/Spring)

Meal Plans are available to all students, including those living off-campus. Annual Meal Plans start Sunday, August 25, 2019, and end Friday, May 16, 2020. Geronimo's & Bamboo Terrace will close for the summer on May 17, 2020. Students may now apply for a Meal Plan at the same time as their on-campus housing through the online Student Housing Portal until August 2019. Although you may apply for both at the same time, please note Meal Plan fees are billed and collected separately from Student Housing fees. Please do not make any payments for your Meal Plan until you see the charges posted to your CSUN myNorthridge Web Portal. If you missed the window to apply for a meal plan with your housing, you will need to submit the Meal Plan application directly to the Meal Plan office.

Your Financial Aid will not take care of those fees automatically. You will be responsible for all fees posted to your Student Portal after your Financial Aid refund has been awarded.

Spring Semester Only & Off-Campus Student Meal Plans

Students living off-campus or students applying for the Meal Plan for the Spring semester only may purchase a Meal Plan by downloading and completing the Meal Plan Application found here. You may either mail or drop it off the completed application to the Meal Plan office. We also accept applications via email, please reach out to us if we do not confirm we have received your contract. Please do not make any payments for your Meal Plan to Cash Services until you see the remaining charges for the semester posted on your CSUN myNorthridge Web Portal. Please Note: if your Financial Aid has been disbursed and you have received a check or E-deposit before you applied for a Meal Plan, your Financial Aid will not take care of those fees automatically.
