Orillia Campus Residence - Meal Plan
All Access Dining and Declining Balance Dollars
Included with your residence package at Lakehead University Orillia Campus is a daily meal plan in which residence students are automatically enrolled. Lakehead Orillia offers all residence students "All Access Dining", a more flexible dining experience and only a short 2-minute walk from residence! This plan provides students more value for your dollar and allows students to eat as much or as little as they want in the Residence Dining Hall.
Declining Balance Dollars ("DB Dollars") work similar to money on a debit card, and are stored with a student's meal plan information on their Lakehead University Student ID Card. Every time a purchase is made using DB Dollars, the total purchase cost is subtracted from the dollar balance on the student card. DB Dollars can be used anywhere on campus where food service is operated by the campus caterer. Top ups are available in increments of $100.00.
For any additional information regarding your student meal plan, or if you wish to discuss specific dietary needs, please contact Lynn Fortney, Manager, Residence, Food & Conference Services at ext. 3002 or email@example.com
