Meal plans

Student living in Residence have access to a choice of residential meal plans, provided by McGill Food and Dining Services. In some residences, a mandatory meal plan is in effect, but there are nevertheless different levels of plans from which to choose. Also, students living off campus or in a residence where there are no mandatory meal plans have the option to purchase a meal plan to get the flexibility of eating on campus at any Food and Dining Services location while not having to worry about carrying cash.
