Hours of Operation

It is always a good idea to know when the dining locations are open!

If you have class during lunch/dinner and can't make it to the dining room, you need to know that you have other options. The easiest thing for you to do would be to stop by the University Center and order something from Bears Bistro... they have extended hours, and you can use your meal plan and Dining Dollars there.

Hours (and daily dining room menus) are also listed on the UNC Mobile App!
