When choosing your meal plan, you should consider: 

  • The size of your appetite
  • How many times you eat and snack per day
  • How often you will be away from campus, including weekends.

The Full Plan is our most popular plan. It’s best if you have an average appetite and will be on campus most weekends.

Your meal plan is accepted at food outlets located in our residence buildings, the CAW Student Centre, Leddy Library, the Toldo Health Education building, the Odette business building and the Centre for Engineering Innovation. Your meal plan can also be used in vending machines and at our local restaurant partners: Harvey’s, Pizza Pizza, Green Bean Cafe, Mare Nostrum, Fattoush Express and Jade Chinese Cuisine.

Our Marketplace food court has seven food concepts: Chef to U; The Burger Bar; Marche Pasta; Tim Hortons; Pizza Pizza; Subway; and Booster Juice.

A Starbucks is also available at the Told Health Education Centre.

Our executive chef and his team create seasonal menus using fresh ingredients. Our menus include seasonal fruits and vegetables, and local Ontario-raised chicken, beef and pork. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are available at most campus food outlets.

Our menus offer a wide variety of ethnic and multi-cultural options, including Asian fusion, African stews, Indian curries, Mexican and North American comfort foods, and Italian street foods. SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS If you have special dietary needs, please contact the Student Recruitment office by email ( before you move to campus, so we can set up either a phone or in-person appointment, offer an overview of your specific food options, and make special provisions, where possible.
