2022-2023 Optional Meal Plans

Dining Services' meal plan options provide an excellent value by offering nutritious, balanced meals, extensive variety and all-you-care-to-eat servings to students that reside in a Scribner Village apartment, Northwoods apartment, Hillside apartment or who live off-campus.

If you have any questions, regarding your student's meal plan options, such as, changing a meal plan, declining balances, or financial inquiries, please contact Darlene LeBaron in  the Bursar's Office - main office phone number 518-580-5830.  Also, information regarding the use of Student Skidmore ID Cards can be found at - this will require getting your student's login and password information to see their declining balance information.
