Dining Services

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.

Fall meal plans are active Wednesday, August 16th - Friday, December 8th. Spring meal plans are active Saturday, January 6th - Friday, May 3rd.

Convenience store in the UC

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 daily, along with a great salad bar, making it easy to choose healthy items. Tobey-Kendel Dining will be closed due to construction, but our mobile food carts will be deployed in the TK courtyard for our central campus customers -- as long as it's warm out. (We can't wait until we can share the "new TK" with you soon!)

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. Our newest locations in the UC include Bowlful, Empire State Pizza, Crisol Latin Kitchen, and Burger & Co. Bears Coffee Shop is located in Michener Library if you're needing some caffeine while you're studying. Starbucks® is located in Holmes Hall, so stop by and grab your favorite beverage and snack.

Students can use up to 5 of their weekly meal swipes as a Meal Exchange at Bowlful, Crisol Latin Kitchen, Empire State Pizza, and Burger & Co.

SPECIAL NOTE: We are still experiencing supply shortages, making some items unavailable. Please speak to a manager if you don't see what you need in the dining room.
