Boxed Lunch Program

The boxed lunch program is for students who have paid for a 5-day or 7 day  meal plan.  

If you are one of these students, and you have classes or coop placement anywhere outside the main campus and cannot make it to the 24/7 Dining Hall, you can pick up a boxed lunch prior to leaving the campus for your class. 

How the program works:

  1. Check your eligibility: you must be registered for a 5-day or 7-day meal plan to be eligible AND have classes or coop placement anywhere outside the main campus.
  2. Register for the program: go to the uOttawa Card Service Office with your timetable to prove that you are in the coop program or attending a class that will be held at either Roger-Guindon Hall, 200 Lees, Algonquin College, Saint-Paul University or La Cité collegial.
  3. Participate in the program:
  • Use the free Tapingo app to order your lunch by noon the day before you need it.
  • Once you have picked your boxed lunch up, you will be locked out of the 24/7 Dining Hall for the next three (3) hours.
  • Remember to pick up your lunch on the morning of your class.

Students who are not eligible for boxed lunches but whose course timetable conflicts with lunch hours, and who would like to participate in the program are asked to send an email to the uOttawa Card Service uOttawa
