Dining Services

UNC Dining Services provides a variety of meals in several dining settings for students, faculty, staff, and guests. Holmes Dining Hall and Tobey-Kendel Dining Room provide an “all you care to eat” menu seven days a week with take-out meal options available. Students can choose from a hot to-go meal called a "Bear On The Run" or they can choose a "Gourmet To Go” when they would like a to-go meal they can eat at another time. Meal plans are also accepted at the University Center Food Court and Bears Bistro.

The DASH food line is available at both Holmes Dining Hall and Tobey-Kendel Dining Room and can accommodate students with specific dietary needs or food allergies. The DASH allows customers to consistently find healthy items that follow specific nutritional guidelines. A Registered Dietitian is on staff to assist with any specific dietary needs.

UNC students living off-campus can purchase either a Bear Plan or an On-Campus Meal Plan. Students can also add Dining Dollars to their account to purchase food and beverage items at any of our campus retail dining operations. Campus locations that accept Dining Dollars include Subway®, Einstein Bros® Bagels, Munchy Mart, Sushi with Gusto®, and Bears Bistro, as well as two Coffee Corner locations in Kepner Hall and Michener Library, and select vending machines across campus.

Dining Services also provides catering for special occasions, concessions for sporting events and campus activities, and vending throughout campus. For more information, contact the Dining Services Office at (970) 351-2652 or visit

Semester Bear Plan

Students who purchase Off Campus Bear Plans can use their UNC Card to access Holmes Dining Hall, Tobey-Kendel Dining Room, the UC Food Court, and Bears Bistro.  Cash and credit cards are accepted in all dining rooms and campus retail operations. Students can use Dining Dollars in any retail dining location, including vending machines across campus.

UNC Dining Services offers Bear Plans to upperclassmen living in either Lawrenson Hall or the Arlington Park Apartments, as well as off-campus students.
