2021 Spring/Summer

The 2021 Spring/Summer Session will be a bit different, while we will not have mandatory meal plans you will have a meal card that is loaded with a complimentary amount equal to $10 per day of your stay at Hotel BU. For example if you are staying 10 days your card will have $100 or for a 35 day stay it will have $350.  Your card can be used in our cafeteria over the course of your stay to purchase any meals or snacks you choose. You will also have the option to add more money to your card at any point in your stay so you can continue to enjoy the convenience of eating here at BU. Our cafeteria will remain open for the full Spring/Summer Session Monday to Friday for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, excluding Holidays.

Spring/Summer 2021 rates can be found on the Hotel BU page www.brandonu.ca/ancillary/accommodations

Meal Plan Card

While eating in Harvest Hall simply present your student ID card at the cash register. The card is read by the card readers and the purchase is deducted from your food account.

Please Note: The loss of an identification card must be reported to the Residence Office, where a new one can be purchased for a charge of $31.25.  Do not punch holes in your ID card, as it may disable the radio frequency reader embedded in the ID card.
