Does this plan apply to you?

The Mandatory Residential Meal Plan applies to all students living in the following residences: Carrefour Sherbrooke, La Citadelle, New Residence Hall, Royal Victoria College, University Hall, Douglas Hall, and all the Upper Residences


***McGill's dorm and modern dorm style residences weren't built to accommodate cooking on the floors, and doing so could present a danger to you and to your fellow students. There are apartment style residences that do have kitchen facilities such as Solin Hall or MORE Houses. Learn more.***

Highlights of the Mandatory Residential Meal Plan

Save on taxes.... Almost 15% savings!

The Mandatory Residential Meal Plans are tax-exempt, saving you almost 15% on taxes on most food item purchased in 21 different locations on both campuses. As specified by Quebec sales tax laws, some confectionary items are not applicable. You also save money due to no bank transaction charges.

Rollover Plan

When your contract expires on April 30th, the remaining balance in your home base account will be automatically transferred to a rollover plan. A combined $50 minimum from both the home base and flex accounts applies.

A complimentary meal

One complimentary meal is included in the cost of the Mandatory Residential Meal Plans. During Move in Week-end in August 2016, Food and Dining Services will offer all new resident students a complimentary meal in the residential dining halls.


In order to encourage the use of alternatives to take-out containers, and to help reduce the use of paper cups, Food and Dining Services provide every student registered in the Mandatory Meal Plan an Eco-Kit composed of a reusable bag, a reusable SHHS Coffee/Tea Mug and reusable container called the Preserve 2 Go that can be recycled in Ozzi machines or exchanged at the cash for a token.

***Students who are on the Mandatory Residential Meal Plan will be charged an additional $500 in oneCard dollars. Funds can be used to pay for laundry in residence, to purchase taxable food items on campus, and at select vending machines. For more information, visit the oneCard homepage.***
