Summer Dining

Petch Fountain

Thank you for your interest in UVic Food Services over the summer. We will be operating all of our retail services out of our new Cove Dining Hall.

Summer Groups 

We facilitate summer groups using a wristband program that allows your group to charge their meals to a communal account at the cash register at the Cove. It is required that you load $16.00 per meal/per person and it is the responsibility of the group or individual to remain within the set budget. The funds are non refundable and the details of your group must be confirmed and paid three business days before your groups arrival. If you are staying in UVic Accommodations we will ensure the wristbands are ready for your group at check-in otherwise they will be made available for your first meal at the Cove.

Summer Meal Plan

We have an optional meal plan for all students with a ONECard between May 1 & August 31.

Summer Meal Account | 10% Discount

The voluntary Summer Meal Account is a flexible option for all students who have a ONECard between May 1 and August 31. To apply, email or visit the UNFS office located in the Robert Carroll Building. 

Once the Summer Meal Account has been added to your ONECard, funds can be loaded with one of our cashiers or at the ONECard office. When you make a purchase, that amount is deducted from your balance. Add money at your convenience and tap your ONECard at any UNFS location to receive the 10% discount. 

Our food service offerings will be reduced during the summer and cannot guarantee they will be open for all meal times. For this reason the Summer Meal Account is voluntary with no minimum loads.

    • May & June | 7am–2pm, Daily
    • July & August | 7am–7pm, Daily

All funds on the Summer Meal Plan are non-refundable. On August 31st any remaining, unused funds are automatically placed into a Carry Forward Account. These funds are accessible on your ONECard for future purchases from any University Food Services outlet and provide a 5% discount. 

The account works at all UNFS Food Outlets, this does not include at the Student Union Building (SUB) or Starbucks.
