"The best part of the CapU Residence is that you don't have to cook your own food!" - Naomi, Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication student

How it works

Items will be individually priced or priced as a combo. When you make a purchase from the dining hall, you will pay using your student card. The cost of each item purchased will be deducted from the amount you have in your card. Your student card will work like a debit card.

If you run out of funds before the end of each month and wish to add more funds. You should contact housing to add additional funds to your student card. This additional funds will be charged to your student account as an additional charge and will not be deducted from a future month addition.

During the summer months, funds not used up each month can be carried forward to the next month. All unused funds will expire at 12 p.m. (noon) of the contract end date.

Students who wish to share their account balance with others must be physically present in the dining hall and must purchase and pay for the items they wish to give to another student.

Take-out option

Students are allowed to eat in the dining hall or take their meals to-go.

Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten Free meals are served during each meal time, with additional meals available for students whose requirements cannot be met by these. When you apply, you will be invited to provide information about any dietary restrictions you may have.
