We're proud to be recognized as a Canadian leader for sustainability initiatives. We have won Ontario's "Local Food Champions" award, and continually source local food to feed over 5,000 students per day!

Your Meal Plan

At the University of Guelph, all food items are individually priced - just like a restaurant! You only pay for what you order.

When you purchase an On-Campus Meal Plan, your Campus Card is your payment system for food purchases. Every time you choose a snack or meal, simply present your Campus Card card to the cashier and the appropriate food dollars will be deducted from your meal plan balance.
