Dining with Covid-19
If you are isolating due to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, you will be required to order your meals for pickup. Be sure to exchange your carabiner or used GOOD TO GO container to save the $0.75 single-use fee upon pick-up.
If you have a food allergy or other dietary needs, the safest menu options are those available from a dining hall, and from the true balance menu items. Before you order online it is important you complete the complete Allergy/Dietary Need Intake Form.
Place an order through the Student Residence and Dining Portal by clicking “Meal Service Assistance” - “Online Meal Order” - “Covid-19 Related”.
We encourage all students with allergies/other dietary needs to book an appointment with the Registered Dietitian or call 613-533-2953.
Retail orders can be ordered ahead for pick up by using the Transact Mobile App, however available menus for allergies and special diets may be limited. Download the app!
