To maintain the high level of quality ingredients and meal selection that our community has come to expect from our Food Services retail and residence dining locations, we have had to make the difficult decision to increase some of our prices due to the rising costs of ingredients and supplies. 

This price increase (effective January 8, 2023) will affect our residential dining halls (Chestnut, New College, Campus One) and our retail locations (Sids Café, Robarts and MSB). 

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to continuing to serve you delicious, fresh, and high-quality meals to support you throughout your academic journey in 2023.
