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

Our residence meal plan is an all-inclusive program for residents of Peter Lougheed Hall and Lister Hall, though there are voluntary options for non-residents to take advantage of the Meal Plan as well!

How it works:

Simply present your ONEcard at the entrance to gain access to the dining location, where you can help yourself to a variety of choices.
You can eat as much or as little as you choose and come back as many times as you like throughout the day.

The dining halls will be open from Monday to Sunday with the following designated meal periods, each featuring unique menus:

Lister Dining Hall:

7:00am - 11:00pm


Peter Lougheed Dining Hall:

7:00am - 9:00pm

If you can’t make it back to Lister Market or the Peter Lougheed Dining Hall for lunch, don’t worry! You can either pre-order a boxed lunch in your dining hall for pick up in the morning before you leave for class, or you can visit the Meal Plan hot lunch location in CAB.

MealPlanFlex funds

MealPlanFlex is a separate "declining balance" account on your ONEcard that is included with your Meal Plan. In addition to the all-inclusive Meal Plan, each resident of Lister Hall and Peter Lougheed Hall will also be provided with a MealPlanFlex balance of $300, one half to be added to your ONEcard account in August and the second half will be added in December. MealPlanFlex can be spent at select dining locations on campus. Please note that GST applies to MealPlanFlex purchases.

How it works:

Once you have purchased a block of meals on your ONEcard account you have everything you need to enjoy meals at the dining hall in Peter Lougheed Hall and in the Lister Market Dining Hall. Simply swipe your ONEcard at the entrance to gain access, then help yourself to a variety of choices. 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 swipe. 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 (after 4:00pm, when the Dinner period begins) to swipe your ONEcard a second time to spend another meal credit for the dinner period.

*Take-out is not available. All meals must be consumed in the dining room.*
