Campus Meal Plans

About Campus Meal Plans

The meal plan you load to your OneCard works like a debit card: whenever you buy a meal on campus, the amount of your purchase is subtracted from your account.

All meal plans can be used at any Seneca Dining Service location at Newnham, King and Seneca@York Campus, including the Residence at Newnham Campus.

Note: If you are a student with an active Seneca email account, you can purchase a meal plan before obtaining your OneCard. However, you must have your OneCard with you in order to use your meal plan at the Seneca Dining Service locations.
