Meal Plans

$5,150 – $5,550 (figures based on 2018–2019 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. Two meal plan options offer choice and flexibility. Each 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 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.
