Food Services will continue its shift from the ‘all you care to eat’ program to providing a boxed meal program that complies with Health Canada’s physical distancing guidelines.

All student summer rates will include a mandatory meal plan that provides 3 boxed meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner).

If living in residence this summer, your Tcard has been loaded with your full balance of 3 meals/day. Meals purchased during the program will be deducted from the starting balance. If you use the meal plan balance before the end of your stay, you are welcome to purchase additional boxed meals with your Tcard at your own expense.

Boxes will be pre-packaged and ready to pick up to during the designated meal periods.

To access the meal pick-up station, students will enter the dining hall and pick up their choice of boxed pre-packaged meals from the serving area. Students will pay for their boxes when they exit the dining hall by checking out at the cashier stand. Students will be charged for each box they purchase.

Breakfast boxes will be available 8 AM-10 AM, lunch boxes will be available 11 AM-1 PM, and dinner boxes will be available from 5 PM-7 PM.

Hot beverages (coffee/tea) will be available during breakfast. Soft drinks will be available for lunch and dinner and are included in the purchase of a boxed meal.

Please Note: You will see the full amount for the summer meal plan loaded onto your TCard, regardless of your length of stay. Any unused funds associated with your summer meal plan will be removed from your account when you checkout from the summer session. You will be charged daily (value of 3 boxed meals) for all the days you are living in residence. You will not receive a discount if you consume less than 3 boxed meals a day. If you have more than the allocated 3 boxed meals per day, you will be charged for these.
