CHEERS Flexi Food Options

Cheers Flexi Food Options provide peace of mind. You won’t need to worry about shopping or cooking; allowing you to focus on your Uni life free from hunger.

Available at our Wagga Wagga, Bathurst and Orange campuses, you can choose a plan that covers most of your meals, or just your daily coffee and snacks.

Some of our accommodation packages have a minimum flexi food requirement and other accommodation types let you choose one to suit your lifestyle and hunger. You can choose your flexi food option when you accept your accommodation offer at the Wagga Wagga, Bathurst or Orange campus.

Flexi Food can be purchased by either yourself or by someone else on your behalf, like a parent, guardian or supporter.

Flexi Food Options are also available to students who live off-campus. Contact cheers@csu.edu.au and we can assist with setting this up.

Here's how it works

Available at Wagga Wagga, Bathurst and Orange campuses, our flexi food options give you flexi points that you can spend at on-campus Cheers food outlets on food, snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.

Flexi points are a way of loading cash onto your Charles Sturt Student Card. One point equals $1 and they can be spent in cent increments - depending on how hungry you are.

Your flexi points are loaded onto your Charles Sturt student card every fortnight. We encourage everyone to eat regularly and budget your flexis’ across the fortnight until the next reload. Any unused flexi points will rollover to the next session.

Flexi Food plans are valid for 36 weeks starting at the beginning of session one. Any unused flexi points will expire on the final termination date for residences.
