Meal Plans

Accepting a placement in the Knox College Residence is an automatic acceptance of a Residence Meal Plan, with meals taken at New College Dining Hall, (5-minute walk) and Tbucks that can be used at various food kiosks on campus run by the University of Toronto. Students can access the dining hall by going to the 40 Willcocks Street or 21 Classic Avenue (accessible) entrance. Information on the dining halls and their hours can be found here. There are no refunds on missed meals. 

New College offers a declining meal plan including $100.00 Tbucks. This means that your residence dollars are loaded onto your TCard at the beginning of the year, and, as with a debit account, residence dollars in your meal plan account are deducted when you make your food purchases. You’ll have the freedom to choose the items you’d like to eat from a variety of locations across campus allowing you to be able to fully utilize your plan by deciding how and when to you use your plan as it suits you.

Prior to activation of your meal plan all residents are required to review and acknowledge the Meal Plan Terms & Conditions Acknowledgement. Failure to acknowledge the Meal Plan Terms & Conditions prior to moving into residence will result in the meal plan not being activated and the funds not ready for use upon arrival.

New College Dining Hall – 40 Willcocks Street

Students can access the dining hall by going to the 40 Willcocks Street or 21 Classic Avenue (accessible) entrance.

Yes! Residents can purchase a meal plan at any time through the meal service website here. Once you have received your meal plan, it will be linked to your Tcard and can be used at participating food services.

If you do not use up all of your meal plan and have a remaining balance, it will be turned into Tbucks. The Tbucks will be linked to your Tcard and you can use it at participating locations

Tbucks are a common form of currency widely accepted across campus. They can be used to buy taxable pre-packaged food items like bags of chips and candy bars, used to purchase textbooks or for printing and photocopying on campus. TBucks can be purchased by anyone holding a T-Card for use on the St. George campus.
