Meal Plan Options - Fall 2015 / Spring 2016

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!

Not sure what meal plan to choose? Check out a few tips we have for you.

On Campus Meal Plans

Off Campus Bear Plans

  • Students living off-campus, in the Lawrenson Apartments, the Arlington Park Apartments, the University Apartments, or in the UNC owned houses are eligible to carry any meal plan, including Bear Plans.
  • We recommend Bear Plans for our off-campus students because you can purchase meals in small packages... add on meals as often as you want!
  • Purchase Bear Plans with the online meal contract NOW (you must be a registered student to use the online contract).

Yes... 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.

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.
