I’m so excited for Elevate to launch at Cornell next semester! I get really tired of dining hall food, and I live right near Collegetown so having restaurants on a meal plan is super convenient.

You've got questions. We've got answers.

+ Is Elevate more affordable than the dining hall?

Save $200 to $300 compared to the traditional dining hall. Our meals also rollover, so you don't lose hundreds of dollars in unused meals.

+ What meals can I eat?

Choose from a huge variety of custom meal combos from restaurants on our meal plan.

Typically save up to $2 per meal combo with elevate instead of buying items separately without meal plan.

+ Is Elevate a good value?

Yup! We negotiate with restaurants to give you the best possible price when using The Collegetown Meal Plan. Prices start at $9.62 per meal, saving you up to $2 per meal combo

+ Is Elevate associated with an official school meal plan?

Nope - we're the only meal plan you can use at Collegetown restaurants.
