We are pleased to offer you the ease and convenience of our Mac Express Plans. This means you no longer have to worry about carrying cash. You can use your Mac Express meal plan to pay for purchases at all Hospitality Services locations. Not only do you have access to a wide variety of food choices on campus, you can also enjoy dining out at one of our local participating off-campus vendors (some restrictions apply, for details see the following page).

We have Mac Express Meal Plans for Residence Students, Off-Campus Students*, Faculty & Staff* as well as a Departmental Plan which can be set up for your departmental catering needs.
*First time applicants should submit a meal plan form to the Mac Express office (residence students excepted).

Note: Do not use e-mail to submit your application if it includes your credit card information. You can use mail or fax.

Once you select a Mac Express Plan which suits your needs, a meal account is set up for you. Students' accounts are conveniently accessed from their student ID card. Faculty and Staff can have their employee ID card programmed in our office to access their meal plan (unless there is a request for a separate meal card). A completed form can be sent by mail to our office. We accept cash, cheque, money order, American Express, Master Card and Visa credit cards (cash and debit are accepted in person only). In addition, there is also a convenient payroll deduction plan for Faculty & Staff.

At any time during the year you can add money to your meal card. Students can deposit into Freedom; Faculty/Staff into Staff meal account. Residence students can deposit into Flex or Freedom during their stay in residence.

To save time and still have your meal card filled up, we offer you the convenience of on-line payments using your credit cards. Even parents can add money to a student's meal account using the "Parental Pre-Pay" option (you need to know student ID number and birthdate).

Getting into Residence
A Residence Meal Plan is mandatory for all students living in Residence. There are two groups of meal plans:
Group-A - Full Meal Plans available to all residence students
Group-B - Reduced Meal Plans available to Mary E. Keyes and Bates residence students only
We encourage you to read and understand the policy.
Upon your arrival to campus, your Student ID card will already have a meal plan set up for you.
If you want to change your meal plan, you must submit a written request to Mac Express - the deadline is August 13, 2014 at 4 pm.

Living Off-Campus
Hospitality Services is pleased to offer students living off-campus two different types of meal plans: the Freedom Plan and the Term Plan - view more information on off-campus meal plans website.

All meal plan holders have web access to their meal plan information - check balance, review transactions, add more money, cancel lost meal card, etc. Parents can also add money to their children's accounts from the same web page at My Meal Account by chosing "Parental Pre-Pay" option.
