Dining

Dining Services at NEC are managed by Rebecca’s Culinary Group, a diverse food management company specializing in retail, school and business contract dining, catering and special events.  All students living on campus are required to purchase a basic meal plan (details below). The cost of the basic meal plan is a separate charge within your student bill. The basic meal plan also includes $100 in Cafe Cash for additional food purchases. Students can check their Café Cash balance at the register in the Green Room Café (GRC) within the Student Life and Performance Center (SLPC). You can also check the balance and add Cold Cash online: https://necmusic.campuscardcenter.com/ch/login.html.
