Meal Plan

Students in Residence: All students living in residence must participate in the food plan. Students dine in the Huron Dining Hall, located on Huron's campus just a short walk from the residences. The meal plan is based on an "all you care to eat" system. The set price covers all meals, every day, for the entire academic year. 
 
Flex dollars are included in your meal plan purchase and can be topped up at any time. There are Huron and Western flex dollars. Huron flex dollars can be used to purchase at the Retail Kiosk or any of the vending machines located throughout Huron’s Campus. Western flex dollars can be used at any food service location at Western. Western flex dollars can be topped up at Western.
 
Non-Resident Students: Non-Resident Students have a few options open to them. You can purchase the full year meal plan or one of the bulk meal plan purchase options or just pay as you go (our Guest Access). Any option purchased will allow you to access the Dining Hall for an All You Care to Eat experience.
 
Retail Kiosk: There will be a retail kiosk at the entrance to the Dining Hall where students can pick up sandwiches, drinks and other ‘Grab and Go’ options. These can be paid for with debit, credit, cash or Huron flex dollars.

It offers a unique dining experience, varied cuisine and top quality service, in air-conditioned, smoke free, spacious dining rooms. Brown's Dining Solutions is Canada's largest independently owned dining solutions company and operates exclusively as a dining services provider in over 140 sites in Canada. In support of the commitment to providing the best service, products, and value possible, Brown's will establish a committee of students, and staff to continually review a range of subjects which impact users daily, including operating hours, menus, and value.

Students are invited to bring their favourite recipes from home, especially those for vegetarian and ethnic dishes. If a suggestion is used on the menu, the student and a friend will enjoy a complimentary meal.

Fastlane

Students in a rush can stop by Fastlane for freshly made sandwiches, wraps, sushi, salads, soups, snacks, and beverages all ready to go when they are.
