Meal Plan Refunds for Winter 2021

UW Food Services is offering meal plan overhead refunds for any residents withdrawing from Claudette Millar Hall (CMH) prior to April 1, 2021. 

Meal Plan Dollars and Flex Dollars:

Any money that is on their Watcard will remain on the student's Watcard for use when they choose.  After they have moved out of CMH, there will be no HST exemption for meal plan dollars.  Students will receive 5% discount at all UW Food Services locations when using their Watcard. 

Meal Plan Overhead Refund: 

The refund for overhead portion of the Residence Meal Plan allowance is determined by the month of move out.

The WatCard office will calculate the prorated overhead rebate, and that amount will be added to the student's Quest account. 

Rebate Eligibility: 

  • The rebate is determined by month of move-out and amount of meal plan dollars left on the Watcard. 
    • If the student has the minimum amount of meal plan dollars (column 3 above) remaning on their Watcard in their month they withdraw and move-out of CMH, they will receive the maximum rebate noted in Column 2 above. 
    • If the student has less than the minimum amount of meal plan dollars on their Watcard in the month they move out, they will receive the maximum rebate for the following month provided their meal plan dollars are no less than the maximum rebate of that month. 
      • For example: If a student moves out on February 15 with $550, they will receive a rebate of $308 (March's maximum reabate). 
      • If a student moves out on February 15 with $250, they will receive a rebate of $250. 
      • Please note: If a student moves out in March with less than $308, they will not receive a rebate.  
  • The student can only receive the maximum rebate allocated to their month of move out.  

Optional Meal Plans: 

Optional Meal Plans (Value Plus Meal Plans) can be refunded on or before January 31, 2021.  As of February 1, refunds are no longer permitted.  All meal plan and flex dollars will remain on the student's Watcard as long as they are a student.  If a student is withdrawing from the University of Waterloo or graduating, they can apply for a refund of whatever funds are on their Watcard here
