If you go home over the summer, your funds will remain on a Campus Meal Plan and will continue to be accessible to you upon returning in September.

Once your funds have been transferred to the Campus Meal Plan and you decide you would like a refund, please contact Campus Meal Plan Office at mealplan.uwo.ca/contactus.cfm to arrange for a refund.
