How Do I Apply For A Meal Plan?

Meal Plans are available to all students, including those living off-campus. Annual Meal Plans start Saturday, August 24, 2013, and end Saturday, May 24, 2014. Geronimo's will close for the semester on May 24, 2014. A new feature has been added to the application process which allows students to apply for a Meal Plan at the same time as their Student Housing online through the Student Housing Portal. Although you may apply for both at the same time, Meal Plan fees are not included in Student Housing fees. Please do not make any payments for your Meal Plan until you see the remaining charges posted to your CSUN Web Portal.

Students living off campus can download the Meal Plan Application, fill it out and either mail it or bring it to the Meal Plan Office along with your payment. Do not send any applications by email! 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 Web Portal. For specific questions regarding meal plans, please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions.
