Meal Plan Options
First-year students who are living in the residence halls are required to purchase one of the three On-Campus Meal Plans. If you’re considered a sophomore or above in standing (20 years old or 20 earned credit hours) by the drop deadline, you can choose additional On-Campus Meal Plans. UNC students choosing to live on campus are required to carry an On-Campus Meal Plan throughout the academic year (per your Housing and Dining contract).
Students who are living off campus or are a sophomore or above in standing; living in Lawrenson Hall, the Arlington Park Apartments, or UNC-owned houses are exempt from the mandatory meal plan policy.
Meals are only valid for the semester the plan is purchased. They don’t carry forward from Fall to Spring. There are no monetary refunds for uneaten meals. Parents, you can add Dining Dollars to your student's account with a credit card.

Rates per Semester
2020-2021 prices are subject to change until they are officially approved by the Board of Trustees in June.
Dining Dollars allow you to purchase food and beverage items at campus retail dining locations using your UNC card. Many of our On-Campus Meal Plans include Dining Dollars, but any student can purchase Dining Dollars in increments of $25. You can add Dining Dollars anytime by logging into your Dining Contract.
Guests and visitors are welcome and may pay using cash or credit in any of our locations.
