Meal Plans

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. Meal plans are based on a "declining balance" system. Each meal plan holder has a set amount of funds available to purchase meals at any of the Huron food service locations, including selected vending machines located throughout the Huron campus. As food is purchased, the available balance declines equal to the amount that has been spent.

Plan A
Plan B
Plan C

Plan A ($4,595) is designed for students that are on campus most days of the week and some weekends. Based on a 7-day week over the school term, your average weekly budget would be approximately $132.

Tax Exemption: all student meal plans below pay no HST with most food items. HST applies to vending machine purchases, all sundry items, and packaged foods.

Plan B ($3,695) is designed for those students that are light eaters, have dietary restrictions, and who are seldom on campus on weekends. Based on a 5 day week over the school term, your average weekly budget would be approximately $106.

Tax Exemption: all student meal plans below pay no HST with most food items. HST applies to vending machine purchases, all sundry items, and packaged foods.

Plan C ($1,995) is designed for Upper Year students only, and is only designated as a supplement plan. Based on 31 weeks in a school term, your average weekly budget would be approximately $65.

Tax Exemption: all student meal plans below pay no HST with most food items. HST applies to vending machine purchases, all sundry items, and packaged foods.
