UNC meal plans provide you with convenience and flexibility, whether you want a quick coffee, a snack in between classes, or a full meal during the day.
There are multiple meal plan options for first-year students, returning students, and those who are eligible to live off campus.
We recently updated our dining software system, so you can now MANAGE YOUR MEAL PLAN ONLINE. Once you have registered for classes, you can log in to purchase your meal plan and/or dining dollars. Dining contract changes can be made up through 5pm on Friday, September 2nd (for Fall 2022) & Monday, January 23rd (for Spring 2023).
Spring 2023 meal plans will be active at brunch on Saturday, January 7th. Dining Dollars will be active that morning as well.
There are a variety of dining locations across campus for you to sit down and eat with your friends or grab a bite on the go when you're in a rush.
Holmes Dining Hall offers several entrées and side dishes, along with a great salad bar, making it easy to choose healthy items every day. Tobey-Kendel Dining is the spot to go if you're looking for a panini sandwich with soup or salad. Bear Simply To Go (in Campus Commons) is open throughout the day, so if the dining room is closed, you can still use your meal plan there.
There are many convenient retail dining options. Stop by the University Center and grab a bagel and shmear at Einstein Bros® Bagels, a sub sandwich at Subway®, some snacks at Munchy Mart™, or fresh-made sushi at Hissho Sushi. Bears Coffee Shop is located in Michener Library if you're needing some caffeine while you're studying. Our new Starbucks® located in Holmes Hall is open -- stop by and grab your favorite beverage!
Currently, students can use up to 5 of their weekly meal swipes as a Meal Exchange at Einstein Bros® Bagels or Subway®. When our new locations open up in the University Center, we'll add 2-3 new Meal Exchange locations.
Due to nationwide supply shortages, some items are temporarily unavailable. If you have specific dietary issues and don't see what you need in the dining room, please speak with a manager. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
