Campus Meal Plans

2023/24 Campus Meal Plans are in development. Please check back soon to select an option that will suit your campus lifestyle.


Are you busy with little time to prepare snacks or lunch for your day on campus?

Purchasing a Campus Meal Plan or Flex $ turns your student, staff or faculty card into an all-access food pass for retail locations on-campus. Whether you are looking for coffee and small snacks or nutritious meal options, we have a plan to suit your on-campus lifestyle. 

Top 5 reasons to purchase a meal plan: 

  1. The plan is loaded onto your student/staff card, so you don’t need to remember cash, debit or credit  
  2. Less time spent worrying about meal prep and track your spending on food and beverages
  3. Auto-enrollment into the GOOD TO GO reusable container initiative  
  4. It is accepted at all Hospitality Services retail food locations on campus  
  5. Works with the Transact mobile ordering app 

*Campus Meal Plans can be purchased any time throughout the year! 

*Residence students, your meal plan is included in your Residence Fees.

*Students with a meal plan and/or accessing Hospitality Services on campus, with functional limitations associated with a disability or a health condition requiring unique or extenuating considerations for accommodations, must meet with the Registered Dietitian and may be required to provide a letter from their Health Care Provider.

Flex $

Flex $ is simply money loaded onto your student, staff or faculty card to help budget your spending on food and beverages on campus. With the swipe of your card, the transaction amount will be deducted from the balance on your card by the cashier at participating retail locations on campus.

This is a good option if you don’t want a full meal plan or are just looking for convenient snacks on the go. Flex $ can be topped up at any time. 



Trade a Meal (TAM): The convenience of TAMs allows you to “trade-in” a dining hall meal from a meal plan for a combo menu in our retail locations, adding flexibility to your meal plan to eat outside of the dining halls at participating locations across campus. You can use up to a maximum of four TAMs per day.  

Just look for the TAM Symbol TAM symbol on menus and let a cashier know you want to trade a meal. Want to add a snack or single-serve item on top of your TAM? Use Flex $ or cash to make up the difference. 

GOOD TO GO Reusable Container Initiative

Who doesn't want to save $0.75 per single-use container and help reduce waste? When you purchase a Campus Meal Plan you are automatically enrolled into the GOOD TO GO reusable container initiative.

Pick up your green carabiner in the main Hospitality Services Office in Victoria Hall, room E022. DO NOT LOSE IT. The carabiner will be your new side kick when choosing to reuse while dining in retail on campus.
