Meal Plans and Dining Halls

One of the best things about living on campus is not having to worry about grocery shopping, food preparation, cooking your meals, or cleaning up afterward — leave all those time-consuming duties to us! At SMC and Loretto, all residents are required to have a meal plan because there are no cooking facilities in any of the dorms. Both dining halls offer a variety of different food stations, such as:

  • The Kitchen – Hearty entrees including vegetarian & halal
  • Trattoria – Brick fire oven pizzas, pasta, and flatbreads
  • The Grill – Grilled favourites, beef burgers, jerk chicken, BBQ ribs, and more
  • Salad Bar – Stocked daily with a wide variety of seasonal ingredients
  • Deli Station – Create your own subs and sandwiches
  • Dessert Station – Delectable cakes, squares, brownies pies, and pastries
  • My Pantry – Here you can cook your own meals in our kitchen cooking station, complete with two cooking stations

Meal Plan Options

Residents have two “All You Care to Eat” meal plan options:

  • 5 day provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday to Friday
  • 7 day provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday to Friday, as well as brunch and dinner on the weekends

Check out Dana’s meal plan offerings on their website here!

Note: Meal Plans can be upgraded or downgraded until September 30. Beginning October 1, meal plans can be upgraded from 5-Day to 7-Day. To request a change, contact with your request and student number.
