Dining plans

Dining plans are mandatory if you live in Residence. Choose from three sizes:

Residents are issued a declining balance debit card, which will be honoured at all Humber Food Service outlets. If you don’t have your card when purchasing food, you’ll need another form of payment. Your Dining Plan Card is also your Residence ID card.

Eat in

Residence dining includes:

  • Salad bar
  • Fruit bar
  • Burgers and fries
  • Wraps and sandwiches
  • Pizza
  • Hot meals that change daily
  • Live cooking station where food is cooked in front of you. Each night is different, i.e., pasta bowls, fancy salad bowls and burritos.

There is also a mini convenience store with snacks and last-minute items like toothbrushes and detergent.

Applying to residence

3 important things to remember:

  1. You cannot apply to residence until you have an offer of admission.
  2. Once you have your offer of admission, apply as soon as possible. Space is allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.
  3. Applying is a two-step process that can take longer than a week to complete. Don’t leave it until the last minute. More details will be sent with your offer of admission.

Priority will be given to international students that require residence. Students are encouraged to apply for residence as soon as possible, as our system tracks the order in which students submit their application, and spaces will be offered to eligible students in that order.
