Residence Dining

Your meal plan is included in your residence fees and allows you to eat in all three dining halls and several retail locations serving internationally inspired food across campus! Here’s how it works.  


2022/23 meal plans includes: 

  • 19 All-You-Care-To-Eat Meals per week in your choice of 3 dining halls. 

  • 200 Trade a Meals (TAM) - “trade-in” one of your dining hall meals for designated TAM specials in participating retail locations! Look for the TAM logo and let the cashier know you would like to use a meal plan. 

  • 145 Flex $ – Flex $ are loaded onto your student card and work like cash. You can use them to purchase anything in participating retail locations like beverages, snacks, and even meals. The cashier will swipe your card and the amount will be deducted from your Flex $ balance. You can add more Flex $ to your card at any time, and in any denomination through the Student Residence & Dining Portal

  • GOOD TO GO Reusable Container Initiative - The green carabiner clip will be with your keys at a residence front desk. Bring your carabiner with you to exchange every time you visit a campus retail food location to save the $0.75 single-use container fee. Learn more about the GOOD TO GO initiative.

 Dietary & Allergen Needs? 

We know it can be hard to manage allergies and dietary requirements, especially in a new place – we’re here to help you. If you have a food-related medical condition, allergy, intolerance, or dietary need related to religious or cultural observance, our dedicated Registered Dietitian will help you make informed choices while dining on campus and participating in the university experience.  

Our dining halls and campus retail food locations have options available for students with vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, gluten-free, halal, kosher, and other dietary requirements.

Accommodating Students 

Before you even arrive in residence, and while you are on campus, our staff can help prepare you for dining safely and mindfully in the following ways: 

  • Fill out the Allergy / Dietary Intake Form available through the Student Residence & Dining Portal. The Registered Dietitian & Wellness and Sustainability Manager and/or Campus Executive Chef will contact you to schedule a meeting to discuss your specific requirements.  

  • Book a confidential consultation with our Registered Dietitian (button) 

  •  “Ask Before You Eat” and speak to a dining hall chef or manager on-site to help you find choices that meet your needs. 

  • If you require room accommodation as part of your allergy management, visit the residence accommodation page to access the necessary form and instructions. 

Daily Menus

Queen’s Hospitality Services strives to celebrate global cuisine and offer menu options inspired by cultural diversity. Menus change daily in all three dining halls, and with several retail food locations across campus, almost any craving will be satisfied.
