Residence Meal Plan

Welcome, Gaels – Let’s Eat!

Welcome to Queen’s University and the internationally inspired food environment your Residence Meal Plan offers. Your meal plan is included in your residence fees and allows you to eat in three all-you-care-to-eat dining halls (Leonard HallBan Righ Dining Hall and Jean Royce Dining Hall) and several retail locations. Students with vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, gluten-free, halal, kosher, and other dietary requirements can take comfort in knowing we’ve got you covered. Here’s how it works.

Your 2022/23 meal plan includes:

  • 19 All-You-Care-To-Eat Meals per week in your choice of 3 dining halls.
  • 200 Trade a Meals (TAM) – “trade-in” one of your dining hall meals for designated TAM specials in participating retail locations! Look for the TAM logo and let the cashier know you would like to use a meal plan.
  • 145 Flex $ – Flex $ works like cash and can be redeemed at several retail locations on campus for Fresh to Go items and single-serve snacks like drinks, baked goods, etc. Flex $ can be used with a TAM meal by adding a tasty dessert or a fresh piece of fruit in a retail location. Top up your Flex $ anytime through the Student Residence & Dining Portal.

ECO Container Program Enrollment – The green carabiner clip in your Residence Move-In Welcome Package lets you swap out single-use disposable food containers for reusable alternatives for meals at participating locations. Learn more about the ECO Container Program.

Food Allergy or Dietary Need?

Ask Before You Eat - Logo-01

We know it can be hard to manage allergies and dietary requirements in a new place – we’re here to help you. If you have a food-related medical condition, allergy, intolerance, or dietary need related to religious or cultural observance, our staff will help you make informed choices while dining on campus and participating in the university experience. 

Our dining halls and campus retail food locations have options available for students with vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, halal, kosher, and other dietary requirements. 

Accommodating Students

Before you even arrive in residence, and while you are on campus, our staff can help prepare you for dining safely and mindfully in the following ways:

  • Fill out the Allergy / Dietary Intake Form available through the Student Residence & Dining Portal. The Registered Dietitian & Wellness and Sustainability Manager and/or Campus Executive Chef will contact you to schedule a meeting to discuss your specific requirements. 
  • Book a confidential consultation with our Registered Dietitian (button)
  • “Ask Before You Eat” and speak to a dining hall chef or manager on-site to help you find choices that meet your needs.
  • If you require room accommodations as part of your allergy management, visit the residence accommodation page to access the necessary form and instructions.
