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

Winter Break is HERE!!

All of the dining rooms are now CLOSED for Winter Break!! When you come back in January, Holmes and Tobey-Kendel will re-open for Brunch on Saturday, January 10th. All other locations (UC Food Court and Bears Bistro) will resume their normal business hours on Monday, January 12th. Please click here for a complete listing of our Winter Break hours.

For our Retail Dining locations, the closures/hours are a little different... during the Winter Break (and the Interim Session too), there will be limited hours at select Retail Dining locations only. Please click here for a complete listing of our Winter Break hours. The dining rooms may be closed, but you can still use (and purchase) your Dining Dollars during Winter Break. Beginning on Sunday, January 11th, all Retail Dining Locations will resume their normal business hours.

Yes... We Feed The Bears!quick tip

Dining Services has a creative and passionate staff who love to try new ways to cook and serve you better, so our menus change a little bit each semester. 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 asked us for new meal plans -- so we re-worked all of your on campus meal plan options. Not sure what meal plan you want? Check out a few tips we have for you here.

We also listen to our customer feedback. You asked us to extend Bears Bistro hours -- they're now open 10:30am-9:00pm, Monday through Thursday and 10:30am-3:00pm on Fridays. Bears Bistro accepts student meal plans and Dining Dollars... it's the only location on campus that does!

Dining Dollars are very handy to have loaded onto your UNC Card, and we have lots of different locations that accept Dining Dollars. Check out the Retail Dining hours of operation here.

Nutrition Labels Online

A healthy lifestyle is the key to looking good, feeling great, and being the best you can be at work and at play. A healthy eating plan helps you get the most out of life. (We also have a Registered Dietitian on staff, so let us know if you’d like to schedule and appointment with him!)

We are working on a brand new option our customers to be able to see the nutritional value of our recipes... hopefully soon!! Until then, you can see nutritional labels for The DASH and other stations here.

See the colorful quick tip listed above? Miss the ones we did previously? No worries... they're also listed here.

Meal Plan Options - Fall 2014 / Spring 2015

Dining Services offers a meal plan to fit any student's needs. Students living on campus choose their meal plan when they sign up for housing... it's so easy! Live off campus? We can recommend a Bear Plan just for you. Dining Dollars are great to have no matter where you live! Leave the shopping, cooking, and cleaning to us!
