The residence menu is based on a six-week cycle. During lunch and dinner, an average of eight hot entrées are offered, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and lower-fat options. In addition, students can make daily selections from a soup/chili, deli, yogurt/parfait or salad bar. Interactive cooking and a carvery station are also featured during several dinners throughout the week. The residence menu offers endless culinary options. You can experience the flavours and cuisine of Asia, various European and North American fares, as well as different cooking techniques to create a wide selection of dishes. To help you make sound and independent choices, ingredients are listed for most items on the daily menu and are displayed at the entrance of each dining hall.
If you buy most of your meals in residence, you will receive much better value in extending your residence meal plan credit. Ordering in, using the online vending machines, or dining on campus or at the local restaurants is more expensive, and your flex dollars will be depleted more quickly. As residence food prices reflect that the overhead portion has been removed and you are not taxed for most meal purchases you make in residence, your residence meal plan will last much longer if you purchase your meals within the residence dining halls.
