Food at Toroa College
Because we understand that student life is busy, when it comes to food we think flexibility and choice are important.
Breakfast food is delivered for you to prepare, so you don’t have to be at breakfast at a set time. If you don’t want to get out of your pyjamas to eat your cereal, or if you have a late start, you can eat breakfast at your leisure in the company of others in your apartment.
There are lots of places on and around campus to purchase lunch if you want to, or you can use this opportunity to further develop your independence through planning and preparing your own lunch meals.
To help you settle into College life, dinner is provided until the end of March. It’s served seven nights a week in the Union dining hall, just a short stroll from the College. You’re free to keep up dinners at the Union dining hall after March with payment on a month-to-month basis, and late meals are not a worry if your course has a late lab or tutorial. Vegetarian and Halal food are available and other dietary requirements may be possible on request, please check with us if you have specific needs.
If you are choosing to cook for yourself then you will be delighted to find our kitchens are fully equipped and ready for you to demonstrate your culinary skills. There is no need to eat at a set time, to be anywhere in particular to get your lunch, or to have food you do not want – Toroa is ready to help you make the most of Otago!
Got a late lecture? - No problem, you can request a late dinner by signing up in the late dinner book at the Union.
Special dietary requirements
Vegetarian and Halal options are always available and we may be able to offer other requirements by prior arrangement.
Feel free to talk to us if you want more information.
