Two Campuses; Same Exceptional Services

Update: July 2021: Hours of Operation and Food Service Delivery Style (Dine in or Take out) will be decided in August pending the latest health unit regulations and may be subject to change with little notice depending on governmental or health unit recommendations. Students' schedules will be considered to ensure that the cafeteria is accessible to students during their regular school day. Our Food Services Teams continually works with students' unique needs to ensure you have access to nutritious options for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, which may include pre-arranging pick up times for meals if outside of our normal operating hours.

Lakehead's dual campuses offer flexible and convenient dining services to our students, staff, and the public. Our on-campus food providers are ready to bring their passion and expertise to all of our clients, whether eating on the way to class, sharing dinner with friends or planning a coffee break for your team meeting. 

At all times, our focus is to provide a safe and efficient method of meal delivery, even during unexpected service disruptions, whether that be dine-in or takeout. During times of quarantine, a delivery model will be implemented for affected students.
