Dates of existence


The Food Services unit existed on the campus as an independent unit from approximately the 1980s until it was taken over by Chartwells Educational Dining Services in 2005. In 2015, the food service contract was transferred from Chartwells to Aramark. By then, Food Services was listed as part of University of Calgary Ancillary Services, a group of self-funded operations offering services enhancing, supporting and serving the University of Calgary. All Ancillary proceeds stay on campus supporting academic, research, and student programming initiatives.

The mandate of University of Calgary Food Services is to oversee the food services operator and all food-related operations on campus including meal plans, catering, a variety of campus food retailers, vending, and liquor licensing.
