In order to meet your campus dining needs, we have designed the following meal plans for the academic year. If you need to purchase a meal plan, or if you would like to make a change to the plan you have already selected, simply contact the housing department office at (415) 618-6335.
Out with the old, In with the new!
Our meal plans have upgraded from being by the week to by the semester (also known as block plans). Previously, during the fall and spring, meal plans would reset between Sunday and Monday mornings. Now with our new block plans, meals can be used anytime throughout the semester twice per meal!

The Academy of Art University created the Knight Kash program to be the ultimate complement to your university experience. Your AAU Student ID can be used for dining on campus, but we realize that students and parents want more. So we partnered with your favorite off campus merchants to give you the ultimate flexibility, variety and value you deserve.
Knight Kash is a stored value meal program, which can be used just like cash. It may be used at any campus dining location (Café’s and Kiosks) and any participating Knight Kash merchant. Adding points to your account may be done at anytime. The Knight Kash program will enhance the student experience and broaden student access to local restaurants and merchants. Giving students the capability to use their Knight Kash debit account off campus provides added flexibility for their meal plan.
