COVID-19: News and Campus Updates

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.

On Campus Meal Plans are required for first-year students living on campus. There are multiple meal plan options for first-year students, returning students, and those who are eligible to live off campus.

NOTE: We are sorry for the inconvenience -- 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.

Spring 2022 meal plans will be active on Saturday, January 8th.

Convenience store in the UC

Dining Services offers a variety of dining locations to sit down and eat or grab a bite on the go.

Holmes Dining Hall offers several entrées and side dishes, along with a great salad bar, making it easy to choose healthy items every day. There are also convenient "on the go" options at our retail locations. 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. There's a Coffee Corner located in Michener Library if you're needing some caffeine while you're studying.

Be sure to check out our options in Fall 2022 -- we're adding new retail locations at the UC -- plus there will be a Starbucks® located in Holmes Hall!

Nutrition and Dietitian

Quality nutrition is the foundation of a healthy lifestyle. The food you eat directly impacts your energy, focus, and ability to perform at your best.
