For those students residing on campus, a dining plan is compulsory. This flexible scheme allows you to use your Student ID card as a dining card in our Bond food and dining outlets at any time of the day that suits you. You can grab something light and easy when you are busy and something substantial when you have more time. You can even pick up essentials at the Bond Express convenience store. The only thing you can’t purchase with your dining credits is alcohol.
Dining plans are valid for one semester only from the Monday of 'O' week through to the last day of semester. (Dining plans can be extended if staying over the break but not transferable to the next semester). They can be topped up if necessary.
