Residence Meal Plans


Meal Plans

Our Meal Plan ensures consistent and uninterrupted food service accessibility to our students in residence, providing them with flexibility and dining options. Students living in residence accommodations where Meal Plans are mandatory must select one of the Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum Meal Plans. Students living in suite-style accommodations with kitchens may optionally purchase any of the Meal Plans listed below.

Meal Plan Options - 2021/2022

Meal Plan OptionsCost of PlanMeal Plan Dollars Meal Plan Plus Dollars

Funds on your plan are separated into two accounts – Meal Plan and Meal Plan Plus.  Funds in the Meal Plan Plus account can be spent at all locations that accept meal plan as a form of payment, however funds in the Meal Plan account can only be used in specified locations listed below.

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 30, 2022. 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 30, 2022.
