The MRU Dining Plans are available to all MRU students including those living in Residence, as well as faculty and staff. Dining plans are purchased and loaded through the OneCard and will be available for immediate use at The Table Food Hall, Tim Hortons, Jugo Juice, Barrow Coffee Roasters and Starbucks.

 

Dining plan benefits

Dining plan options

The classic plan.

 

The total cost of the Classic Plan is $1,600 which provides approximately $400 dining dollars per month for the full semester.

What’s included in the Classic Plan:

  • For $400 you could purchase two meals a day Monday through Friday
  • Receive a total of 10% ($160) in bonus dining dollars (5% tax exemption and 5% bonus)

 


The on-the-go plan.

 

The total cost of the On-The-Go Plan is $1,000 which provides approximately $250 dining dollars per month for the full semester.

What’s included in the On-The-Go Plan:

  • For $250 you could purchase one daily meal, a snack and a coffee or cold beverage Monday through Friday
  • Receive 5% ($50) in bonus dining dollars (tax exemption not applicable)

 


Flex dollars.


How the MRUeats Dining Plan works:

  • Make a lump sum dining dollars purchase in your preferred amount ($100 minimum)
  • MRUeats payments $1,000 and up receive 5% in bonus dining dollars (tax exemption not applicable)

 

How it works

When you purchase a dining plan, the funds are loaded onto your OneCard. The plan has a declining balance which means that just like a debit account, dining dollars are deducted when you make food purchases. Don’t worry, if you run out you can easily reload your plan online by making a MRUeats Dining Plan payment through the Cougar Campus Store website. 

Every food item is individually priced. Dining is not “all you can eat”, but the plans are flexible. For example, you are not obligated to purchase a daily meal and snack, however, your plan is large enough to accommodate this if you need it. This means that on the Classic Plan, you could spend $500 in your first month and $300 in your second, so long as you remain within your $1,600 limit. The same applies to all other plans. 

To make a purchase, swipe your OneCard at a participating vendor's cash register for contactless payment. Mention that you are paying with a dining plan. To help provide safe service, cash transactions are unavailable at this time. Note that dining plans are non-transferable. The cashier will provide an update on your balance every time you make a purchase.

 

How to purchase a dining plan

1. MRU Dining Plans can be purchased online through the Cougar Campus Store. 

2. Select the plan, enter your student/employee ID number and select the quantity. Click on Add to Cart.

3. Proceed to checkout.

Dining plan purchasers will receive an email in 1-3 business days from the OneCard office once the plan has been applied to their account and it will appear as an MRUeats balance in the OneCard Portal.

Alternatively, people can visit the campus store on main street to make the purchase in person. All bonus dining dollars will appear in your MRUeats account balance after you purchase a dining plan.
