Meal Plans

$5,950 (figures based on 2020–2021 academic year).

With the exception of Alumni House and London Hall, exclusively upper-year buildings, each of Western's residences offers the convenience of in-house dining facilities. The meal plan includes a combination of residence dollars for items prepared in the dining hall, and flex dollars for convenience and off-campus purchases. If desired, meal plans can be topped up online at no additional cost. Unused food credit balances at the end of the year can be carried forward onto a meal plan for the next academic year. For a $40 processing fee, unused food credit balances can be refunded.
