Meal Plans

Residence Halls Meal Plan

All students living in the Bartley and Halliday Hall residences will be required to participate in a comprehensive, mandatory meal plan.

Meal Plan
  • All day dining in the Residence Dining Hall + $800.00 declining balance
  • Students are allowed unlimited entry into the Residence Dining Hall during regular hours of operation
  • Declining balance dollars can be used anywhere on campus where food service is operated by Aramark.
All-Day Dining
Lakehead University Residence offers students living in the Residence Halls "All Day Dining", a more flexible dining experience at the University.  This plan provides students more value for their dollar and allows them to eat as much or as little as they want in the Residence Dining Hall.
Declining Balance
Declining balance works similar to money on a debit card, and is stored with a student's meal plan information on their Lakehead University Student ID Card.  Every time a purchase is made using Declining Balance, the total cost is subtracted from the dollar balance on the person's student card.
Please note, there are no refunds on unused meals and/or declining balance amounts nor do they carry over to the next academic year.

Apartment and Townhouse Meal Options

As each unit in these accommodations has a full kitchen, meal plans are not mandatory. However, the Food Services Office offers several attractive meal plan options to those students not wishing to prepare all of their own meals.
