The meals begin with Waterloo's Orientation Week and end with the Waterloo's exam period. Residence fees are set assuming students eat 70% of their meals at the college. Fees cover breakfast, lunch, dinner, and afternoon snacks. The kitchen is open from 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm so that students can access beverages, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, bread/bagels, and spreads for snacking. The meal plan also includes a couple of late evening snack times each week.
No, you may not! Of course there are always exceptions for specific cases.
Yes, they can with a few guidelines and exceptions.
Residents have paid for their meals as part of their residence fee. All other people are required to pay for any food obtained in the dining room.
Residents are asked not to share food, or supply food for non-residents (see Food Rules!!!).
Due to limited space, typically only residents and associates can attend Community Supper. If you have an out of town visitor and want to bring her/him to Community Supper, please speak with the Director of Student Services.
The dining room may be used for studying, playing games, or visiting with others with the following conditions.
It is a public space so you cannot insist that other people be quiet.
It is a dining room, therefore, all books, laptops, etc. must be cleared away whenever other public events are scheduled for the room. Anything left will be placed in the lost and found area.
If you make a mess in the dining room, you are expected to clean it up.
Periodically, the dining room is reserved by various groups for banquets or receptions. We try to limit the number of groups to reduce disruption of student life, but we ask that you be considerate when the dining room is in use. Residents will be notified in advance of these events.
We do our best to accommodate all food allergies and sensitivities. We are happy to meet with you to discuss your particular dietary needs.
Preferences? Remember that food service is being provided for a large number of people and a particular request is not always possible. Feel free to speak with us if you have any food concerns.
