Dining is an integral part of the College’s communal and academic life. Green College has a required meal plan for both residents and guests, provided by the Green College Dining Society.

If your stay includes nights from Sunday through Thursday (when the College serves meals) a charge for meals per night will be reflected on your accommodation invoice (see Rates and Policies). The cost of breakfast will also be included on your invoice for any mornings from Monday to Friday, when breakfast is served. You may, of course, choose not to take meals at the College, but this charge is not refundable and meals are not transferable.

Breakfast is served in the Great Hall Monday through Friday, 7:30-9:30 a.m., and dinner is served Sunday through Thursday, 6:15-7:30 p.m. The menu changes daily (see the Weekly Menu), and there is always a vegetarian option.

You are also welcome to invite your own guest(s) not staying in guest accommodation to join you for dinner or breakfast. Please note that anyone not already covered by the guest accommodation meal plan requires their own ticket for dinner or breakfast (see Purchase a Dinner Ticket for dinner rates and procedures; breakfast tickets are $6.00 and can be paid for with cash at the Servery or in advance at the College Office).

For those times when meals are not served, there are many food outlets and restaurants on campus (see UBC Food Services) and nearby in the 10th Avenue shopping district and beyond (see Conferences and Accommodations).

There are vending machines with snack foods and beverages in the basement of Graham House. The Common Kitchen, used mainly by the College’s residents, is equipped with a stove, fridge, dinnerware and small appliances, which can also be used by guests. Guest House Rooms are equipped with a mini-fridge and coffee maker.
