Coronavirus (COVID-19): advice and support for the Bond community. Read more

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 and can be topped up if necessary.

Dining options and outlets

All of our restaurants and cafes are conveniently located on campus, making it easy to utilise your dining card.

Food @ Bond outlets include:

  • Lakeside
  • Lakeside Bar
  • Bond Express
  • Papyrus Café
  • Don's
  • The Cecil and Ida Green University Club and Restaurant
  • Kinetic Café
  • Coffee Cart at Palm Court
