The Meal Plans are designed to provide students with a convenient and tax-free (as per Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) regulations) way to enjoy meals on campus.  

How do they work? 

Meal plans are declining balance with all residence Dining Dollars loaded onto your TCard at the beginning of the year, and, like a traditional debit account, residence Dining Dollars are deducted from your meal plan account when you make your food purchases.  

All Meal Plans are portable, providing the opportunity to purchase food and beverage items from the New College and Chestnut Dining Halls and participating Food Services retail outlets across campus. Visit the Where to Eat on Campus for a list of participating locations. 

Please refer to the New College Residence Meal Plan Terms and Conditions for complete terms and conditions and usage policy.

Meal Plans Options

$6,270

Includes:

Dining Dollars $6,020

Tbucks $100

+ $150 CIF

Please refer to the New College Residence Meal Plan Terms and Conditions for complete terms and conditions and usage policy.

Dining Dollars 

The Dining Dollars portion of the meal plan is available for purchasing tax-exempt food and beverages (as per Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) regulations) at New College and Chestnut Dining Halls and participating Food Services retail outlets across campus. Visit Where to Eat on Campus for a list of participating locations.  

At the end of the academic year (April 30, 2025) eligible unused Dining Dollars are transferred to Food Services Campus Flex Dollars. For more details, refer to the section – Dining Dollar Carryover. 

Dining Dollar Carryover 

For those residents who do not use all their Tax-Exempt Residence Dining Dollars prior to the end of the academic year, a limited carryover is permitted. Eligible carryover funds will be transferred to Food Services Campus Flex Dollars account.   

Each Meal Plan has a Dining Dollars carryover limit: 

  • Plan A $300 less $50 administrative fee. 
  • Plan B $450 less $50 administrative fee. 
  • Plan C $550 less $50 administrative fee. 

Please note the following: 

  1. All carryover transactions are subject to a $50 Administrative Fee.  
  2. Carryover amounts within the limits for each plan will be automatically transferred to Campus Flex Dollars after the end of the academic year for use in the summer and the following academic year(s).  
  3. No refunds on remaining Dining Dollar balances that exceed the carryover limits. 
  4. Meal plan balances with $50 or less will not qualify for a refund or carryover. 

Campus Flex Dollars 

Eligible carryover funds are transferred to Food Services Campus Flex Dollars at the completion of Term 2, April 30, 2025, and can be used to purchase food, beverage, and other items at participating Food Services locations. Campus Flex Dollars are loaded onto the meal plan holders TCard for purchases beginning May 2025.

FAQ

• Purchase food & beverage items at the New College Dining Hall and Chestnut Dining Hall (tax exempt*).
• Purchase food + beverage items at selected retail outlets across campus that are operated by Food Services (tax exempt*).

*Only items prepared by Food Services will be tax exempt. For example, a pre-packaged product such as a bag of chips would not be tax exempt, but a sandwich and beverage prepared on campus using raw ingredients would be tax exempt.
