We areChartwells Higher Education

Nourishing more students than anyone else.

Over the last 20+ years, Chartwells Higher Education has been building the student dining experience. Through serving nutritious, better for you foods, engaging with our campus communities, and innovating our cafés with new technologies, we go beyond providing just a meal.



There are over 2 million university students in Canada, and each one is presented with around 250 food decisions each day.

That’s at least 500 million decisions daily, and Chartwells is happy to make these decisions a little easier. By sourcing seasonal and local foods, focusing on lifelong wellness for each of our guests, and educating our students on the impact their food choices have for both them and the planet, we’re proud to offer a constantly changing variety that is always the “right” choice.



Whether through Compass’ national Nourish program or through local initiatives and charities on your campus, we strive to stay involved and contribute to the communities we serve.
