Dining Club Plans (2019-2020)
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:
The Dining Club Card is mandatory for undergraduate students. The current amount per semester is billed in advance as shown in the Office of Student Finance's fee schedule.
Resident Dining plans are required for all undergraduate students residing in University Housing. Students can choose between one of two plans: Standard ($3,500) or Reduced ($3,000).
Calculated within the cost of each resident plan is a $1350 membership fee per year, covering basic overhead costs associated with dining hall operations and supplies. The remaining balance of each plan is applied to Dining Dollars and Flex Dollars. Dining Dollars can be used for tax-free, discounted, food purchases in the dining halls on either campus, including school cafeterias and food marts in residence halls. Flex Dollars Funds can be used at participating local restaurants (Eden Wok, Mendy's, Tiberias, Chop Chop, Lake Como, Grandma's Pizza, One Stop Kosher, Golan Heights).
For members of these plans, all food purchased with Dining Dollars on campus will be at significantly discounted prices because the overhead costs will be already covered by the membership fee. All funds are tax free and expire at the end of the spring semester.
Undergraduate non residents are enrolled in the Non Resident meal plan. All funds on this plan may be used in Dining Halls or participating local restaurants.

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 2019-20 academic school year, balances must be used by midnight of May 22, 2020.
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..
