New and improved meal plans

Meal plans include meal plan dollars and flex dollars. Your meal plan dollars (tax-exempt) can be spent at the Guernsey Market, Hungry Badger, and DeCew and Lowenberger Dining Halls. Your flex dollars (not tax-exempt) are exactly as they sound: flexible to be spent at any on-campus eatery, laundry facility, vending machine, Tim Hortons, and selected off-campus restaurants and businesses.

A variety of plans are now available to suit your personal needs.

*Regular is the default meal plan for all traditional & semi-suite residence students unless otherwise specified. If you wish to select a different meal plan, fill out the form and submit it by Aug. 31st, otherwise you will be assigned the regular plan. By selecting a different meal plan, the default will be replaced. You will not be charged for two meal plans.

Important

Townhouse/Brock Suites/off-campus student meal plan purchase.

For those students residing in a townhouse residence (Quarry View or Village), Brock Suites (Gateway) or off campus, meal plans are not mandatory. If you choose to purchase a meal plan and you are a student residing in a townhouse residence, Brock Suites or off campus, please note the following:

  • Townhouse residence, Brock Suites or off-campus students purchasing a meal plan will have the option to have their choice billed to their student account, or to pay in person at the Brock Card office.

Important dates:

  • Sept. 1, 2017: Deadline for townhouse/Brock Suites/off-campus meal plan form submission for student account billing
  • Sept. 6, 2017: Term 1 payment, including meal plan, is due on student account (Please note: Payment takes two business days to process.)

In the event that your student account is not paid by the due date, an email will be sent to your Brock account notifying you of the overdue payment. You will have five business days to make payment. After this time, a hold will be placed on your Brock Card until the full amount is paid. Meal plans are mandatory for students living in traditional & semi-suite residences (DeCew, Lowenberger, Vallee and Earp) with a basic tax-exempt, non-refundable portion of either $3,600, $3,950, $4,200 or $4,450.

Students living in townhouse/ Brock Suites residences or off campus also have options for a non-mandatory meal plan. They may choose from one of our four standard options for those living in traditional residences or select a non-traditional plan for $2,000.

Starting Sept. 1st, any off-campus students wanting a meal plan will have to purchase it up front using cash/debit/credit or cheque made payable to Brock University. This also applies to any townhouse/Brock Suites residence students purchasing a second meal plan.

Each meal plan also includes $300 flex dollars. This portion will automatically roll over to the next academic year unless a refund is requested. Those leaving Brock or graduating can request a refund of flex dollars by visiting the Brock Card office. All refunds are subject to a $25-administration fee.

If you do not use all your money by the end of the academic year, you will be able to carry over any unused meal plan dollars to the next academic year. Your meal plan dollars will carry over into a taxable plan that can be used only at Brock Dining Services locations on campus. Please note: There is a one-week blackout period after the last day of exams in April for reconciliation purposes. During this time your meal plan dollars will not be accessible. You will still be able to access flex dollars.  Should you leave Brock, any unused meal plan dollars are non-refundable and non-transferable.

*If you are living in a traditional/Semi-Suite residence (DeCew, Earp, Vallee and Lowenberger) and you do not choose a meal plan, you will automatically be enrolled in the regular plan. Those students living in a townhouse/Brock Suites residence (Village, Quarry View & Gateway) or living off campus who would like a meal plan must sign up for one by filling out a form online or at the Brock Card office.

*All students living in townhouse/ Brock Suites residences (Village, Quarry View & Gateway) will automatically be charged $300 flex dollars.

NOTE: Meal Plan forms were due before September 1st in order to be charged to your student account. If you would still like to purchase a Meal Plan, please visit our office to obtain a form and make payment.
