Viking Dining Plans

WE HEARD YOU!

The All You Care to Eat (AYCTE) Dining 7-Day Plans were designed with the active lives of students in mind. After receiving suggestions and feedback from students and the community for the ideal dining program, Salem State created dining plans to increase student engagement, promote nutritional enrichment and drive satisfaction in the overall campus experience.

Students who commute to campus have needs as unique as the students themselves. But mostly, commuters are busy! This is why we offer a wide variety of dining plan options. The drive to and from campus often leads to dining during non-traditional hours. Time constraints can make it difficult to shop and cook at home. Our dining plans will fit any schedule and offer a variety of nutritious selections to keep you alert and satisfied. In addition to the numerous, freshly prepared selections, commuters can enjoy access to All You Care To Eat (AYCTE) 7-Day dining. There is no better deal than AYCTE at Marsh Dining Commons or North Dining Commons, plus, all of your friends and classmates are there. Don't miss the opportunity to experience campus life during the best times of the day—breakfast, lunch, dinner and, of course, late night!

All commuting students will not be required to purchase a meal plan FALL 2020 Semester. This may change in the future

Commuting students are encouraged to enjoy our wide variety of menu options and dining plans at Salem State. The dining locations are where students gather to eat, play, study and relax, enjoying time together as a community.
