All-you-care-to-eat, 7 days a week!

No need to shop, prepare, cook and clean up – CapU Residence includes a mandatory meal plan, offering healthy, nutritious meal options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week. Eat what you want, when you want it, and never run out of money.

Meal Plan Overview

Savour the daily Chef specials served on a five-week menu rotation. Enjoy the freshness of these specials and made-to-order meals for healthy and balanced lifestyle choices. Or build your own meal at the salad bar or deli bar.

Enjoy freshly baked muffins, scones, cookies and more. Don’t forget the variety of pop, juice, Ethical Bean Coffee and teas as well as assorted desserts at every meal.

Watch for residential promotions happening in the Dining Hall. From local food awareness, multicultural cuisine, holiday menus, and “build your own treats” – the meal plan will feature fun with food on a regular basis.

"The best part of the CapU Residence is that you don't have to cook your own food!" - Naomi, Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication student

Meal Plan supports students away from home

  • No need to cook, clean or worry about cash.
  • Spend your time studying, making friends and becoming part of the CapU Residence community.
  • Eating together is also a great way to meet new people.
  • In short, being on the mandatory meal plan helps students have an easier transition into university life!

"It's like a family here – you can always go into the dining hall and have a nice conversation." - Shayla, Motion Picture Arts student

Dietary Restrictions

Our residence community is home to a number of students with dietary restrictions and needs. Our dining hall staff work to ensure that all students have access to food that meet these needs. Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten Free meals are served during each meal time, with additional meals available for students whose requirements cannot be met by these. When you apply, you will be invited to provide information about any dietary restrictions you may have.

We encourage you to be as detailed as possible to ensure that our chef has enough information to meet your needs. Should you have any questions about our ability to meet your dietary needs, please contact us at residencedining@capilanou.ca.
