Dining Plans

Students living in dorm-style accommodations, including double dorms, at La Cité (formerly La Résidence), Kīšik Towers, Paskwāw Tower and Wakpá Tower are required to choose at a minimum, the Lighter Side Dining Plan for use during the Fall/Winter semesters. This type of accommodation does not have any cooking facilities.

Students living in a studio apartment in Paskwāw and Wakpá Towers are required to purchase the "Partial" Dining Plan for the Fall/Winter semesters.

The dining plans are based on a declining cash balance system, similar to a debit card, except the balance is carried on your card. Your plan can be used toward food purchases at all Chartwells locations at the University of Regina.

Head to any of our Chartwells locations for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack or just to hang out with friends.  With so much variety you won’t go hungry!


  1. Pick a plan that suits your needs.
  2. The Plan pricing listed below includes both Fall and Winter semesters (September-April). Plans are to be paid in full at the beginning of the Fall semester.
  3. If you move into Residence in January or you are an exchange student studying at the University of Regina for just one semester, you will only be required to pay 1/2 the amount of the plan you choose.
  4. Residents buy a Dining Plan, the dollar value of that plan is loaded on a meal card and the funds decline as the card is used.
  5. Use your Residential Dining Dollars for meals, snacks or coffee at our retail locations across campus.
  6. Enjoy the benefits of having a dining plan!
