Meals & dining .

As part of our inclusive approach, in 2023 we offer a choice between two types of meal plans. If you’re looking to focus on your studies, or overwhelmed by the thought of needing to cook after a long day at university, our fully-inclusive package has you covered with three meals a day, snacks, and caffeinated beverages.

If you’re a budding masterchef, or looking for a more affordable option, we also a semi self-catered meal plan, known as the Basic Community Package. Breakfast everyday is included, and our Tuesday Community Dinners. You have the choice of purchasing additional meals at an extra cost, depending on your needs.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between .

Having three meals a day provided while studying makes things super easy. The last thing you want to think about after long, hard days of lectures, studying and assignments is shopping for, preparing and cooking meals. At Grace, we do it all for you, three times a day, 7 days a week. Fully catered student accommodation at Grace College means that you can always eat healthy, fresh and seasonal food even when you’re busy.

  • Our weekly community dinners are the perfect opportunity to meet and mix with other residents outside your own close circle of friends. 
  • If you have late night lectures or tutorials, we'll make sure your meal is available when you get back home.
  • If you're away from campus for the day on placement, packed lunches are available so you don't go hungry.
  • Our commercial kitchen caters for a wide range of dietary needs and allergies, so you'll never have to worry about finding the right food.
  • A supply of fruit snacks is all yours in the Dining Room late meals fridge, and hot & cold drinks bar is available during opening hours.
  • During SWOTVAC and exams, extra afternoon teas and suppers are served to keep your study stamina up.
  • We also have meal vouchers for purchase should you have an overnight guest staying, or a friend looking for an affordable on campus lunch.
