UNIVERSITY CITY, SHARJAH – The American University of Sharjah offers residential hall students a weekly customizable meal plan tailored to their dietary needs, according to an April email from the Office of Student Affairs and the Student Residential Life department.

Customizable combinations of weekly meals are available at varying prices. Weekly breakfast starts at AED 140, and three meals daily for one week cost AED 455.

Residents can complete a weekly form to order and choose from various cuisines and meal plans.

“I find it difficult to order healthy food options and make time to meal prep my food,” said Resident Assistant Sumaiya Bakhach, “so as a busy student, this meal plan will save me time and ensure I have a healthier diet.”

Students must make orders and cancellations at least 24 hours before the delivery date. They must also prepay weekly through cash or credit.

Students with dietary restrictions have vegetarian and vegan options available. 

The catering company will deliver meals to residential halls from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at allocated times for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
