Residence Meal Plan

Welcome Gaels – Let’s Eat!

Welcome to Queen’s University and the diverse food environment that your Residence Meal Plan offers. Your meal plan is included in your residence fees and allows you to eat in the dining halls AND retail locations across campus! Here’s how it works.

Your meal plan includes:

  • 19 meals per week – 19 all-you-care-to-eat meals per week in your choice of 3 different dining halls.
  • 200 Trade a Meals (TAM) – Our Trade a Meal option allows you to “trade-in” one of your dining hall meals for a designated Trade a Meal specials in retail! Simply look for the TAM logo in any of our participating retail locations on campus and let the cashier know you would like to use your meal plan TAM for that meal!
  • 145 Flex $ – You receive $145 of Flex $ on top of your dining hall meals when you start the semester. Flex $ works like cash. The additional funds are added to your student card. Use your Flex $ at participating retail locations on Fresh to Go items, drinks, baked goods, and more. You can also use your Flex $ on top of a TAM meal. Add something extra to your TAM meal in a retail location, like a tasty dessert or a fresh piece of fruit! You never have to worry about running out of Flex $. Funds can be added to your student card at any time!
    • Extra Bonus!: All residence students automatically opt into the ECO Container Progam, helping to reduce single-use containers on campus. Learn more about the ECO Container Program and its participating locations here.


I have been told to isolate. What do I do?

Please refer to the Residence Isolation Protocol and refer to your email from residence with specific instructions and guidance.

I’m sick, what should I do?

If you develop symptoms, are directed by a health care professional to self-isolate, or otherwise suspect that you may have COVID19, call the Victoria Hall Front Desk (613-533-2531).

What are preventative measures I can take?

  • Wear a mask
  • Maintain physical distance
  • Clean your hands often with soap and water or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Cough and sneeze into the bend of your arm, not into your hand. Avoid touching your nose, mouth or eyes with your hands.
  • If you feel ill, follow the steps outlined in the Residence Isolation Protocol
  • Get your influenza vaccine – available on campus through Student Wellness Services.
  • Eat healthy foods and stay physically active to keep your immune system strong.
