Please review your university's website for info about meal plan options for off-campus students. You can also purchase Granville Hall's meal plan at $425 plus tax. The plan is provided by Rudy's Cafe (rudyscatering.ca), located next to Granville Hall at 1681 Granville Street.
Rudy's is a 3-to-5 minute walk from the hotel. Please visit Rudy's website for a look at their menu and hours of operation. Rudy's is a small family operated cafeteria that's been serving downtown Halifax since 1983. The plan provides 14 meals per week (two meals per day) and doesn't include drinks. You can choose anything from the regular menu, or enjoy one of Rudy and Maria's delicious hot lunch specials, which rotate daily (follow their Facebook page for lunch specials of the day). Students can pickup their meals at the cafe during operating hours.
You can purchase a Granville Hall meal plan for one month at a time. There are no refunds if you want to cancel midway through a month, but any future months you've paid for will be refunded.
If you pay the deposit and we're unable to offer you a room due to other students with higher priority, we will refund your deposit in full.
If you receive a room placement, sign a lease, and pay your room fees in full (one year or one semester), then you cancel your arrival for exceptional covid-19 related issues (such as new government travel restrictions or a new wave resulting in cancellation of in-person classes), you will receive a full refund minus one month's rent.
If you cancel your stay after arrival (due to the aforementioned extenuating circumstances), You will receive a refund of your remaining months, less the period you've already stayed (including the month you provide notice). An additional one month's rent will be charged in lieu of notice.
For example, if university classes are cancelled in November and you inform us on November 15 of your intention to return to your home, you will be charged rent for 3 months (September, October and November) plus one more month (four months total). Any remaining fees will be refunded.
Please note: An application does not guarantee placement, and does not guarantee you'll receive the room you applied to. Once we receive your application and confirmation deposit, we will assign rooms based on availability and the priority placement criteria noted in the placement questionnaire. If your application is approved, you'll receive an email containing an invoice showing the room you're being offered, the remaining fees, and a link to the lease documents. If we are unable to offer you a room altogether, your deposit will be refunded.
