Can I take food out of the dining hall?
No, meals cannot be taken out of the dining hall. All meals have to be consumed in the dining hall.
I am not feeling well and want to self-isolate myself. How can I access food?

Please use the Alberta Health Services Self-Assessment tool.

If you are required to self isolate, please contact Residence Services by emailing and enroll in the isolation program. They will go over what information is required and you will be able to get all your meals delivered to your room.

Can my friends join me in the dining hall?
Yes, the dining halls are open to the public. If your friends want to join you for a meal they can pay the walk-in rate to enter the dining hall.
Will the Marina be open?
No, the Marina will not be open this semester. Students who want to order grab-'n'-go items can take advantage of our new online Grocery and Meals to Go program. The program launches in September and more information can be found in the Dining Services website.
