Audrey Taylor Dining Hall

The Audrey Taylor Dining Hall is the heart of New College residence life. Residents from all three College buildings gather here for their meals. The Dining Hall is managed by Food Services, whose mission is to provide a wide range of affordable, sustainable, and nutritious food options through excellent service, commitment to our environment and the celebration of food to reflect our diverse community.

Meal plans are mandatory for New College residents. Residence meal plans are declining balance, with all residence Dining Dollars loaded onto your TCard at the beginning of the year. Like a traditional debit account, Dining Dollars are deducted from your meal plan account when you make your food purchases. 

Meal Plan Options – 2024-25

There are three meal plan options for residents. The only difference between each plan is the amount of Dining Dollars included within the plan. For the breakdown of each meal plan, as well as the full New College Meal Plan Agreement, see “Schedule D” in the New College Residence Policies.

  • Plan A – $6,270 (average weekly spend – $180)
  • Plan B – $6,800 (average weekly spend – $200)
  • Plan C – $7,330 (average weekly spend – $215)

Meal Plan holders who use all their Dining Dollars before the end of the academic year can purchase additional funds using E Accounts.

Where Can I Use My Meal Plan?

The Dining Dollars portion of the meal plan is available for the following purposes: 

Dietary Accommodation
