5-Day Mandatory Meal Plan

Important notice: In response to COVID-19, we’ve made changes to our fall 2020 meal plans and dining service model. For more information, visit the update on our 2020/2021 meal plans and dining service model news article on our website.

The 5-day meal plan, valid Monday to Friday, has two components:

Dine-in or take-out meals at the Pitman Dining Hall

Meal plan dollars go towards dine-in or take-out service at the Pitman Dining Hall from Monday to Friday.

Your OneCard grants you access to the Pitman Dining Hall. Just swipe, select your food and enjoy your meal!

Plus $500 in flex dollars to spend at other retailers on campus

You also get $500 to spend at campus eateries like the Hub Café or participating food retailers including Balzac's, external link, Oakham Café and Ram in the Rye seven days a week.

Please note that some participating campus retailers may be temporarily closed as Ryerson plans for a gradual return to campus.

Purchases are deducted from your flex dollar account in a declining balance.


The 5-day meal plan gives you access to dine-in service or take-out meals at the Pitman Dining Hall, Monday to Friday.

Daily rotating menus full of customizable options and just as diverse as our Ryerson community. Plus, meals that work for food allergies and dietary restrictions, including an exclusively vegan station for exclusively plant-based meals, and made without gluten station so you can eat freely.

How it works

The 5-day meal plan is valid from August 31, 2020 to May 1, 2021. Your meal plan expires at the end of the academic year.

Any unspent flex dollars at the end of the academic year can be carried over into the next academic year and spent at participating food retailers on campus.

Payment installments

When you purchase your meal plan, the value is loaded in four equal installments: June 24, 2020; October 21, 2020; January 20, 2021; and March 3, 2021. All flex dollars are loaded in August. A $30 administration fee will be charged with your first installment payment.
