Welcome to UNC Dining Services where "We Feed The Bears!"

Pick The Right Meal Plan For You

We're all very exited that Fall 2015 is here! You probably are too... so what do you need to do now that you're here on campus?? Make sure you have a meal plan!

  1. If you're a student who lives on campus, check your URSA bill and look at which meal plan you chose. It won't list the actual meal plan, but you'll be able to see the price... and then you can CLICK HERE to see the On Campus Meal Plans and match it to the meal plan you were billed for.quick tip
  2. Next, you will need to decide if you want to keep that meal plan or change it to something else. You're welcome to change your plan, but you need to submit a new contract before 5pm on Friday, September 4th. You can submit a new contract online here or in person at the Dining Services Office, any dining room, or the UC Card Office.
  3. If you're OK with your meal plan and don't want to make changes, you don't need to do anything else!
  4. Do you have any specific dietary issues that you need us to know about?? We can usually accommodate most requests, but we recommend you speak with our Registered Dietitian about it first... he will be able to tell you what we can offer. You can contact Matthew Doyle, RDN, at (970) 351-1961 or matthew.doyle@unco.edu.

"We Feed The Bears!"

Dining Services has a creative and passionate group of employees who love to try new ways to cook and serve you better, so our menus change a little bit each semester. This semester, Tobey-Kendel is going to be trying out a few more vegetarian and vegan recipes. Have a great recipe you'd like us to try? Email it to us at diningservices@unco.edu.

We have LOTS of choices... hungry and don't know which dining room to try? Dining room menus are posted online every Friday, so take a look at what's being served this week. You're not required to eat at any one location, so why don't you try them all!? Check out the Dining Room hours of operation here.

In a rush and just want to stop by for a cup of coffee and a bagel? Why don't you use your Dining Dollars??! Dining Dollars are very handy to have loaded onto your UNC Card, and we have lots of different locations where they are accepted. Check out the Retail Dining hours of operation here.
