Lunch At Queens University

-

After our Friday meetings, several Senior Scholars go to lunch at the Pulse Dining Hall located on the first floor of the Trexler Student Center on the main Queens University campus.  It is an all-you-care-to-eat dining facility with a variety of good quality food choices for one fixed price ($10.50 with tax). Senior Scholars can get a Queens University Q-Card which allows you to purchase prepaid meals at a discount. This is another opportunity to get to know more folks. The fulltime students dine here also, so just look for us Seniors!

 

Q-Card: (Queens ID Card)


Senior Scholars may take advantage of the Queens University Q-card system. Discounts are variable and could range up to 20%. When purchasing 10 lunches the discounted cost for an all-you-care-to-eat lunch is $8.08. Be prepared to have your picture taken when applying for a Q-card.

To get a Q-card: Q-cards are issued at the campus security guard office.  The campus security office is now housed on the first floor of the white Withers house located at the intersection on Selwyn and Wellesley.

To add meals: Go to the post office that is located downstairs in the Texler building. Near the post office is an administrative office where they can receive payments for meals that are added to your Q-card account.

Handicapped parking can be found along Selwyn Ave
