A comprehensive, mandatory meal plan is included for students with accommodation in the Residence Halls.
What is 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.
There are no refunds on unused meals and/or declining balance amounts nor do they carry over to the next academic year.
