Dining Service Use

Students on meal plans may use their ID card to pay for the meal. At the start of the term Student Services/IT notifies Sodexo of students who are on meal plans along with their card numbers. Sodexo makes sure their accounts are activated in the Dining Services System.

Faculty and staff have the option of charging meals in Dining Services. The balance is paid monthly via payroll deduction. Faculty and staff desiring this function should request an account be set up with the Sodexo office on the first floor of Hagen Campus Center.

Students who are not on meal plans but would like to set up a declining balance on their Concordia University ID card can go to the Sodexo office and pre-pay the amount they wish to have on their card.


Lost & Damaged Cards

Lost Cards

Lost cards should be reported to the Tech Center immediately. The Tech Center will deactivate the building access for that card and notify Dining Services and the Library of the lost card. They in turn will deactivate the lost card in their systems.
Cards identified as 'lost' will no longer work in the library, building access or Dining Services. A new card can be obtained at the Tech Center in Hagen 206. Replacement cards will have a different internal number which necessitates all records in campus systems being updated with the new code. The Concordia University ID number ("G-number") does not change.

Damaged Cards

Cards which are damaged due to normal wear and tear are replaced free of charge if the student surrenders the existing card to the Tech Center. In this case the internal numbers are not changed and none of the auxiliary systems need to be updated.
