Current Dining Club Plans (2020)

The Yeshiva University Undergraduate Dining Club Card is designed to give people greater convenience, accessibility, and money management in the Dining Halls, Facilities and Convenience Stores located on the Wilf and Beren Campuses. Here's how it works:

Dining Club Cards are non-transferable and can only be used for purchases by/for the person whose name is on the card.

Declining Balance Program

The Dining Club is a declining balance program, which operates similarly to a bank debit card when a purchase is made. Each time the Dining Club Card is used to make a purchase, the amount of that purchase is deducted automatically from the balance of the account. Any balance in an account at the end of the first semester will be carried over to the second semester automatically. Any balance must be used by the end of the second semester, as there are no refunds. for the 2020 academic school year, balances must be used by midnight of May 22, 2020.

The above plans do not guarantee that a student will have enough funds to cover the costs of food for the entire semester. Students should budget their dining dollars and determine, based on their expected weekly consumption, which plan to purchase. If in doubt, a student may consider purchasing the lowest cost plan. Funds can be added in any increment over $50 at anytime during the semester.  There is no additional membership fee and you will have the added benefit of the discounted pricing in the Dining Halls as well as having the funds available for use with our participating vendors.    Log in to onecard.yu.edu  to access your account and add money. 

Up-To-Date Balancing

Dining Club Card Members will always know the balance on the account. Whenever a purchase is made, the amount of the purchase and the adjusted available balance in that fund is shown on the register's LED display and purchase receipt. Once an account is opened, it can be augmented at any time by additional deposits of $50 or more with the Mobile App or Web Pay.  Additionally, balance inquiries and transaction history can seen on the Heartland Onecard mobile app and WebPay site see www.yu.edu/yucard for additional information..
