Dining Halls & Meal Plans

Located within three of Queen's residences, Ban Righ, Leonard, and Jean Royce Dining Halls welcome both students and visitors.

Our meal plan, included within your residence fees, accommodates the varying appetites of our student body – including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. Additional “Snack Plan” dollars, to spend at our retail outlets are included.

Students not living in residence can purchase an optional meal plan — called an "off-campus meal plan" – at any time!

Alternative Diets

We’re pleased to offer a number of services designed to help students with special dietary requirements. Whether it’s for a special diet restrictions or for religious observances, we can help meet your dietary needs.

If you have specific food requirements, we encourage you to meet with one of our Hospitality Services Managers upon your arrival to campus. Should you wish to discuss your concerns prior to your arrival, contact the Hospitality Services office by email or call 613-533-2953.

Allergies

We support students who have allergies and dietary restrictions by providing information and knowledge that is essential for making informed choices while dining on campus.

Simple Servings

True balance stations feature foods made without allergens with special consideration to minimize cross-contamination.

You can meet with a registered dietitian or our campus executive chef to discuss your nutritional needs and health concerns.

Food Off Campus

[map showing restaurants in downtown Kingston]

It is said that Kingston has the most restaurants per capita of anywhere in Canada, many of which are in the downtown core. The blue pins in the image below show some (not all!) approximate dining/food locations within easy walking distance of campus. Find more details on the Downtown Kingston Dine page...

If you have a craving for a good home-cooked meal, there are several places to buy groceries within walking distance of campus, and a few others a short bike/bus/car-ride away.

During the fall and winter terms, on Tuesday nights between 5 and 8:30 pm, Loblaws at the Kingston Centreoffers a free shuttle service to and from campus. Call the store at 613-530-3861 or pick up a flyer in-store for pick-up times and locations.
