Students Living On Campus
Residence Hall Meal Plan Requirements
One of the benefits of living on campus is having your meals taken care of.
UNC students choosing to live in a residence hall are required to carry an On Campus Meal Plan throughout the academic year. (Click here to read about the Housing & Residential Education First-Year Student Live-On Requirement.)
Students who are at least 20 years old or who have at least 20 earned credits may be eligible to switch to one of the upperclassman meal plan options.
How Do Students Sign Up? Students living on-campus will sign up for their meal plan in the online Housing & Dining contract when they choose where they want to live on campus. The 19 Meals Per Week meal plan will be automatically assigned to all students living in the residence halls in accordance with their housing contract if no other choice is made.
Want To Make A Change? Students can make changes to their meal plan by logging back in to the online Housing & Dining contract through August 1st. After that date, students can choose a new meal plan with the Dining Services online dining contract.
