Dining and Meal Plans
There are four different dining facilities for our students to enjoy. The Ford Campus is home to the Arts & Crafts Café which features a coffee bar, grab and go items and a grill. The Argonaut Grill, Tim Horton’s, and a full service dining facility are located at the Taubman Center.

Meal plan options for 2016 — 2017:
» 785 dining dollars each semester — $725 per semester
» 1570 dining dollars each semester — $1,450 per semester

The 1570 dining dollar plan is approximately 14 meals a week, and the 785 dining dollar plan is approximately 7 meals per week. Please keep in mind that this is an approximation and depends on how much the student actually eats.

If you were to run out of dining dollars, you may also put money on your CCS SmART card. Money added outside of the meal plan is refunded at the end of the year.

All students are locked into a meal plan for the academic year starting on move-in day. After move-in day, the size of the meal plan can be switched until the end of the add/change period at the start of each semester (approximately two weeks after semester start). Dates are published in the CCS Academic Calendar.

Housing Staff
We have a dedicated and energetic staff ready to assist you during your stay in CCS student housing. The staff consists of 10 resident assistants in the Art Centre Building and eight resident assistants in the Taubman Center. The resident assistants are upper-class students who assist residents and plan programs and activities. In addition to the resident assistants, there are professional staff members who live in our campus housing.

Security in Housing
The security of the residents is of utmost concern. Both the Art Centre Building and the Taubman Center have a 24-hour front desk staffed by security personnel to assist students. The building is locked from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. each day. Residents use their student ID to get into the building and to access the elevator or stairwell. Shuttle service is also provided between the Cultural and New Center locations.

Students with Disabilities
All efforts are made to assist CCS students with disabilities. Assistance in educational matters is provided through the Student Success Center. Other types of assistance for students with physical disabilities are provided through the Office of Student Affairs. Students with a physical and/or learning disability must provide the College with documentation of their disability before any assistance can be provided.
