Academic Year 2019-2020 Plans

All first-entry students living on campus are required to have a meal plan unless they are assigned to University Towers. Students assigned to this residence hall are required to have a University Towers plan and can supplement it with an optional NC State Commuter/Apartment plan for on-campus dining. (Exemption from the meal plan requirement is only available under certain circumstances such as those related to a disability or other special consideration.
