Important: New guidelines for dining hall access and shift to delivery service only

April 13, 2021

As communicated in an email from Housing & Residence Life, yesterday Toronto Public Health (TPH) declared an outbreak of COVID-19 in Pitman Hall.

To help support the health and safety of our community, all meal plan holders living in Pitman Hall will have their meals from the dining hall delivered directly to their residence room beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, April 14. In-person meal pick-up from the Pitman Dining Hall will no longer be available for Pitman Hall residents. 

Meal plan holders living in DCC and ILC may continue to pick-up their meals from the Pitman Dining Hall in-person on Wednesday, April 14 or may opt to have their meals delivered on April 14 before we switch to a meal delivery model on Thursday, April 15.

We apologize for being unable to provide advanced notice of this change and for any inconvenience this may cause.
