Students can use their meal plans in any of our dining rooms, choosing from dine-in seating or from either of our to go options. The DASH food line is available in select dining rooms and can accommodate students who have food allergies or specific dietary needs. Our Registered Dietitian is available to assist customers with any specific dietary needs.

Dining Dollars can be used to purchase food and beverage items at any campus Retail Dining location. Snack and beverage vending machines located across campus also accept Dining Dollars.

Students living on campus are required to carry a meal plan, per their housing and dining contract. First-year students living on campus can choose from one of three On Campus Meal Plans offered, while eligible upperclassmen can choose from additional meal plan options. Upperclassmen living in Lawrenson Hall, at the Arlington Park Apartments, or in one of the UNC-owned houses can choose to carry any meal plan option available.

A variety of meal plan options are available for students, regardless of whether they choose to live in one of the residence halls or off campus. Daily menus are listed on the Dining Services website or on the UNC Mobile App. Dining Services also provides catering for special occasions and concessions for sporting events and campus activities.
