Please note that if your Basic account is exhausted prior to the end of the academic year, you will need to have money in your Flex account in order to continue tax exempt food purchases at Hospitality Services locations. You can simply submit a written request to Mac Express to transfer money from Freedom to Flex, or add more money directly to Flex. If you do not have money in Basic and/or Flex, all purchases will be automatically deducted from Freedom and they will be fully taxable.
Please take time to read and understand the current
Residence Meal Plan Policy
Hospitality Services is pleased to offer students living off-campus two different types of meal plans: the Freedom Plan and the Term Plan.
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 through the Parental Deposit option.
Parent Deposit Log On
Mac Express offers a range of meal plan options for Residence Students, Off-Campus Students, as well as Faculty, Staff and Retirees.
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).
