From healthy options to comfort food, our meal plans have it all! Enjoy meals on campus and save the time required by cooking, cleaning and grocery shopping!
Our meal plans are designed to provide convenient access to all-inclusive meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Lister Dining Hall and the Peter Lougheed Dining Hall!
Residence Meal Plans
Lister Residence and Peter Lougheed Hall have a meal plan that provides residents with a variety of nutritious options and comfort foods. Residents can focus on studying and adjusting to university life instead of grocery shopping, meal planning and washing dishes.
If you're not living in Lister Residence or PLH, check out the voluntary meal plan options!
2020-2021 MEAL PLAN
HOW DOES MY MEAL PLAN WORK?
Simply tap your ONEcard at the entrance to gain access to the dining hall in your building and help yourself to a variety of choices.
You can eat as much or as little as you choose and come back as often as you wish during opening hours. Fresh food and snacks are available throughout the day with plenty of choices no matter when you visit. During peak meal periods, choose from a range of made-to-order hot meals!
The Lister dining hall will be open daily from 7:30 am to 8:00 pm for Lister residents and voluntary meal plan holders only.
- Breakfast: 7:30 am–10:00am
- Lunch: 11:00 am–2:00 pm
- Dinner: 4:00 pm–8:00 pm

The Peter Lougheed dining hall will be open daily from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm for PLH residents and voluntary meal plan holders only.
- Breakfast: 8:00 am–10:30 am
- Lunch: 11:00 am–2:00 pm
- Dinner: 5:00 pm–7:00 pm
Please note: The dining halls are only accessible to meal plan holders—no outside guests are allowed and the dining halls are closed to the public.
In addition to the meal plan, each resident of Lister Residence and Peter Lougheed Hall will also be provided a ONEcard cash balance on their ONEcard of $300. ONEcard cash funds can be spent at all dining locations on campus. Please note that GST applies to ONEcard cash purchases.
Voluntary Meal Plan
Want to enjoy meals on campus and save time cooking, cleaning and grocery shopping? Purchase a voluntary meal plan!
The voluntary meal plan is designed for students living in university residence who want the convenience and accessibility of dining on campus. It's ideal for students living in East Campus residences as it provides convenient access to meals in the nearby Peter Lougheed Hall or Lister Residence.
The all-access plan provides unlimited entries to one dining hall throughout the school year. You can select if you want your meal plan for the Lister or Peter Lougheed dining hall on the purchase tab. Make sure to review the expiry dates as these plans do not carry over to the following semester.
The plan offers significant savings, especially on lunch and dinner rates.
Don't miss out! There are a limited number of voluntary meal plans available for students in residence, so purchase yours today!
You must live in a UAlberta residence and have a valid ONEcard to purchase. New UAlberta students may contact Dining Services to make arrangements prior to obtaining a ONEcard.
HOW IT WORKS
Simply purchase a block of meals on your ONEcard account and you'll have everything you need to enjoy meals at the dining hall! Tap your ONEcard at the entrance to gain access and help yourself. You can eat as much or as little as you choose during the designated meal period.
Note: Your access is limited to ONE meal period per ONEcard entry tap. For example, if you enter the dining room during lunch and wish to stay for dinner, you will be required to exit and re-enter when the dinner period begins—just tap your ONEcard a second time and spend another meal credit.
Take-out is not available. All meals must be consumed in the dining room.
