The heart of New College residence life is the Audrey Taylor Dining Hall. Residents from all three residences gather here for their meals. All meals are developed and created right here on campus by our campus culinary team, supervised by Chef James Piggot.  The food is nutritious, healthy and the menus vary each week.  Our campus chefs use locally sourced raw materials whenever possible.  In fact, over 60% of the food made and served here at the University of Toronto’s St. George campus is sourced locally.

The dining room offers an “all you care to eat” program which provides optimum value for money. Vegetarian/vegan (but not kosher) diets can be accommodated, and Halal options are regularly featured.

All students in residence at New College subscribe to a meal plan. A wide choice of plans is available to suit the individuals students’ special circumstances.

A student may choose to sign up for:

  • Carte Blanche – This plan offers maximum flexibility for your dining enjoyment; unlimited access to the dining hall during regular hours of operation. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner; drop in for coffee and muffins, afternoon and late night snacks, all with one convenient plan.
  • Plan 15 – With this plan, you enjoy up to 15 all-you-care-to-eat meals per week in the dining hall (of the 21 meals offered).  This plan is the second most economical of the plans if most of the 15 meals are used each week.
  • Plan 330 – Enjoy up to 330 meals during the academic year, or an average number of 10 meals per week in the dining hall. This plan is ideal if you often eat out, or know that you will be away on weekends or regularly missing meals.

Students with specific dietary needs as a result of allergies, food intolerances or prescribed diets, are invited to contact our office to discuss the matter further.

Requests for changes must be submitted in writing to our office no later than September 30. Your meal plan choice is binding; it is NOT possible to switch after this date.
