Residential Mandatory Meal Plan Administration Fees

McGill Food and Dining Services and McGill University establish the residential mandatory meal plan administration fee on an annual basis, usually at the end of the spring term. Our administration fees cover the fixed cost of dining facilities including mortgages, equipment and general maintenance.

In addition to the food dollars of the Meal Plan, resident students who have a Mandatory Residential Meal Plan are required to pay fees for: 

  • Capital Improvement Fund: $350 Capital Fund Component for renovation projects, equipment, deferred maintenance, repairs and maintenance contracts needed for improvements to dining locations.
  • Sustainability Fund: $100 to finance various sustainability food projects such as waste and recycling, food waste composting, and eco stations in McGill dining locations.
  • Fixed Facilities Fees: $500 for the operation and management of dining facilities including utilities (gas and electricity), mortgages and contributions to the University and to Student Life and Learning.
