Tips and Tricks
As an architecture student, you’re on-campus hours are reduced then most of your fellow classmates so choosing the right meal plan is important so that you can get the best bang for your buck.
The great hall is your buffet style dinning so your entrance fee is what is considered a meal. You can stay inside as long as you like and eat how ever much you want for one meal, one entrance. So, during your off days Wed and Thursday You could technically stay in the great hall for Breakfast + Lunch + dinner = one Meal
Your Flex dollars are perfect for grabbing something quick before heading downtown. Use your meal plan money at the campus Tim Hortons then buying something at the downtown Tim Hortons.
If you live in SSR you have a kitchenette in your apartment so you are able to enjoy cooking your self when you come home late from studio and the great hall is closed.
Studio classes begin at 2pm so you are lucky to enjoy lunch on campus before coming downtown for class. On Fridays, however when there is a morning lecture 10-1pm and Studio at 2pm your best option is to treat yourself to one of downtown’s finest eateries and support our local businesses and family.
