Bear Bucks

  • How do I order Bear Bucks?

    You can order Bear Bucks by contacting the Dining Services Office:

    Bear Bucks cards must be picked up once they have been loaded with the appropriate funding. Sorry, we cannot send Bear Bucks through campus mail.

  • Who is eligible to purchase Bear Bucks? How do I pay for them?

    Everyone is eligible to purchase Bear Bucks, regardless of UNC affiliation (or lack thereof).

    UNC departments will need to submit an EIO for payment prior to picking them up. Everyone else can pay with cash or a credit card. If you're paying with cash, please be sure to bring the exact amount -- we don't have access to change in the office.

  • Who is eligible to use Bear Bucks?

    Everyone! It doesn't matter if you're a UNC student, faculty, or staff member -- everyone can use Bear Bucks.

  • Will Bear Bucks replace Department Meal Cards or student Dining Dollars?

    No. Although Bear Bucks are similar to Dining Dollars that are available for students to purchase, Bear Bucks is a separate program that works similar to a gift card. Bear Bucks don’t have expiration dates, and they cannot be redeemed for cash.
