Mac Express Logo

Mac Express offers a range of meal plan options for Residence Students, Off-Campus Students, as well as Faculty & Staff.

The Hospitality website provides more information regarding the different meal plans. Application forms can also be downloaded at the site. First time applicants can apply in Mac Express office, or by email and fax. For further inquiries, feel free to Contact Us.

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

Once you request 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 option 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 card. This can be done thru the Meal Account site. Even parents can add money to a student's meal account using the Parental Deposit option (you need to know student ID number and birthdate).
