Meal plan and ONECard

The UVic ONECard is not only the official University of Victoria identification card, it's also a meal plan card, food card, library card, recreation membership card, U-Pass card and campus debit card!

Meal Plan

Summer 2021

Due to reduced food services during summer 2021, there will be no meal plan available and therefore no dormitory style housing offered. 

Students living in residence during the summer 2021 will have the option to purchase Flex dollars to be used at on campus facilities. 

Students will be able to make purchases using their Flex dollars at a 5% discount at open outlets within the Mystic Market area.

For additional information on food services, including summer hours of operation and other important details, please visit us at www.uvic.ca/services/food

For more information on the ONECard, including options for adding funds, terms of use, please visit www.uvic.ca/onecard for more information.


Winter Session 2021-22

When you move into a dormitory bedroom (excluding apartments and Cluster rooms), you are automatically placed on a mandatory residence meal plan. This declining balance meal plan is added to your ONECard and has an allotment of money that you can use to purchase food and beverages in University Food Services dining outlets.

  • Meal plans are required for students living in dormitories.
  • Students staying in Cluster rooms or apartments are not placed on a meal plan, but can purchase a tax-exempt plan at any time.
  • Parents and students can add dollars to any residence meal plan through a variety of convenient options.

Visit the Food Services website for details on the meal plan options available from September through April, including where and how to use your ONECard.

Although Residence Services collects fees for mandatory meal plans, University Food Services manages all meal plans, adjustments and refunds.
