For students living in Mackenzie King Village, UW Place, Columbia Lake Village, Minota Hagey Residence or off campus
Itching for some a chickpea curry or customized flatbread pizza – but there’s no time to make it yourself? Or maybe you want to start the day off right with a healthy breakfast on the go. At UW, we make it incredibly easy for students living off campus or in a suite-style residence (Mackenzie King Village, UW Place, Columbia Lake Village or Minota Hagey Residence) to eat what they want, when they want.
What’s in it for me?
We aim to make selecting a meal plan as easy as finding a great place to eat on campus, especially for students away from home for the first time. We know this is an exciting, and overwhelming, time, but with UW Food Services whipping up tons of exciting, nourishing lunches, dinners, snacks and even desserts at locations scattered all over our campus, our students are able to study hard and stay healthy without spending hours shopping for groceries or on meal prep.
And did we mention the cost saving? Value Plus Meal Plans (VPMP) are a deal. Depending on the VPMP you buy, you’ll get a discount of 6% to 18% off most food purchases at a UW Food Services location. Remember: You can buy a meal plan at any time during the term, but the earlier you purchase one, the sooner you save!
