The Meal Plan and Meal Plan Plus dollars cannot be used to purchase taxable beverages and snacks (e.g. carbonated beverages, potato chips, granola bars) unless you purchase these items as part of a meal. For more information on eligible purchases, please visit Meal Plan Terms and Conditions.

Flex dollars are required to purchase taxable snacks and beverages when you are not purchasing them as part of a meal under the Meal Plan.  Flex dollars are also accepted at many locations across campus and can be used to pay for snacks at campus eateries and vending machines, books and supplies at the York University Bookstore, printing and photocopying, residence laundry machines, and goods and services at participating off-campus merchants.

You have the option to add $250 in Flex dollars when you confirm your Housing offer and choose your Meal Plan.  You can also add additional Flex dollars in any amount to your YU-card at any time.  Flex dollars do not expire at the end of the year and are refundable upon request.

Any unspent Meal Plan Plus dollars will be transferred to a taxable carry-forward account at the end of the Meal Plan term on April 27, 2023. These funds may be used in subsequent years to purchase food on a taxable basis if you remain enrolled at York University. Any unused Meal Plan Plus dollars that are transferred to the taxable account at the end of the Meal Plan term are subject to a $50 Administration Fee. Unspent taxable carry-forward dollars will expire if you cease to be enrolled at York. Meal Plan, Meal Plan Plus and taxable carry-forward dollars are non-refundable and cannot be transferred to another cardholder or the Flex account. Meal Plan dollars expire at the end for the Meal Plan term on April 27, 2023.

Tax exceptions are applied when food is purchased through Meal Plans.
