Faculty/Staff Payroll Deduction

Faculty and Staff at UNC are eligible to sign up for the Payroll Deduction program through Dining Services. This is a great perk for employees!

How does it work?

Just sign up for the plan and turn your form in. Forms are available online, at the UC Card Office, in any dining room, or at the Dining Services Office in Tobey-Kendel Hall (room 120). Once your status has been verified and your card has been activated, you're all set!

How much does it cost for a dining room meal?

You are charged $5.50 plus tax per swipe ($5.89 total) in any of the dining rooms across campus. You can also purchase food and beverage items at eligible campus Retail Dining locations and vending machines -- this is especially handy when the dining rooms are closed.

Who is eligible for this program?

The Faculty / Staff Payroll Deduction plan is available to any current UNC employee:

  • Classified Staff
  • Exempt Staff
  • Faculty
  • NEW: Teaching/Graduate Assistant

Sorry, University Aides and Temporary employees are not eligible for this program.

By signing and submitting the application form, you authorize UNC's Payroll department to deduct from your monthly paycheck for food and beverage items (charged from the 16th to the 15th of each month) in participating dining locations at UNC. If your status at UNC is not full-time, charging privileges will be inactive during the months in which you do not receive a paycheck. Authorization continues until withdrawn by the employee or until not longer employed by UNC.

Teaching and Graduate Assistants are only eligible for this program during active contract periods. Meal access will end the 15th day of the month of your last paycheck. Application forms must be re-submitted at the end of each contract period if you want to continue with this payroll deduction program.
