Once you purchase a Meal Plan, your funds will be available on your TCard (Student ID Card). Every time you make a meal purchase, the cost of your meal is withdrawn from your Meal Plan account. If you do not make a meal purchase, no funds are withdrawn from your account. In addition, Students with a Meal Plan will save the 13% tax on all eligible meal purchases. The tax savings is automatically applied at the time of the meal purchase. The UTSC Meal Plan is accepted as a method of payment at all campus food merchants! You can eat whenever you want and spend as little or as much as you want! This is the flexibility of your UTSC Meal Plan!

With a Meal Plan, you can take advantage of numerous benefits, such as:
