Dining Dollars

All residence meal plans have dining dollars attached to them through their student ID card. 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 Chartwell’s (Food Service Provider) vendor locations within the Dalhousie Student Union Building: Tim Horton’s, Bento Sushi, Mezza Lebanese Kitchen, Booster Juice, Passage to India and To Go, as well as King’s Prince Hall dining area. Please contact Chartwell’s directly for more information. 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.  (Please note: student ID cards have different buckets of money, with the dining dollars being its own, separate from regular DalCard monies one can load).

Changing your Meal Plan

For the fall term, meal plan change requests received online through Erezlife (residence student portal), prior to September 6, 2024 will be applied retroactively to the first day of residence. Those received between September 6 and September 17, 2024, the change will take effect on the day of the request. 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 September 17, 2024 by 11:59 p.m. ADT. Corresponding meal plan dining dollars are mandatory and start September 18, 2024. 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 January 20, 2025.)  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.

* (Students are expected to pay their residence fees in full by the term due date. Failure to do so in the fall term may result in the student not being eligible for residence in the winter term).

* (Should a student incur a residence cost after the term due date, the cost is due on the change date (room change, meal plan change etc.), or date of service (replacement key/card, lockout etc.)).
