Dining Dollars

All residence meal plans have dining dollars attached to them.  Dining dollars are funds that can be used throughout the academic school year to purchase food beyond the meal plan.  Dining dollars will be attached to the cost of the meal plan in the fall term and will begin the first day after the fall term due date.  Dining dollars can be used at the following locations within the Dalhousie Student Union Building: Tim Hortons, Bento, Booster Juice and Mezza Lebanese Kitchen as well as the University of King’s College Prince Hall.  Unused dining dollars cannot be carried forward beyond the end of the residence contract date and will be forfeited at that time.  For students who arrive after the fall term due date, dining dollars will be attached to the cost of the meal plan upon their arrival and for use within 2 business days.

Changing your Meal Plan

You can change your meal plan by visiting the King’s Student Accounts Office. For the fall term, change forms received prior to 6 September 2019 will be applied retroactively to the first day of residence. For forms received between 7 September and 18 September 2019, the change will take effect on the day the form is received by the Student Accounts Office. While you can upgrade your meal plan at any time during the academic year, the deadline to downgrade your meal plan for the academic year is 18 September 2019 by 4 p.m. AST. Corresponding meal plan dining dollars are mandatory and start 19 September 2019. Meal plan changes will be processed within 2 business days. (New admits to residence in the winter term (Jan.-Apr.) who wish to downgrade their meal plan must do so by 17 January 2020.)  Changes to one’s meal plan that results in an amount owing must be paid in full by the term due date, for changes made after this date, full payment is due the date of the requested change.  Outstanding accounts will be subjected to late fees and interest charges.
