Meal Plan Options

Hey Wolfpack! Get ready to eat well with our award-winning dining program.

All actively enrolled students are eligible to enroll in a meal plan regardless of whether they live in University Housing, in Greek Life Housing or off-campus. All first-year students living on campus are required to have a meal plan and were automatically enrolled in the Flex Plan on June 1, 2021. Students had the option to upgrade or downgrade to the Flex Plus or Dining Hall plan beginning July 10, 2021.

Exemptions from the meal plan requirement are only available under certain circumstances such as those related to a disability or other special consideration.

Preview the meal plans below. Need more advice on how to pick a plan?  You can always call or email our office.

Fall 2021 – Spring 2022 Plans

No need to get out a credit card; charges are sent to the Cashier’s office beginning July 8, 2021. Changes for the fall semester were available through September 1. If you have a scholarship or financial aid, these funds can be applied to your plan. Plans are priced per semester, and meal plans and campus food transactions are subject to NC sales tax.

First-year students living in on-campus housing have been enrolled in the Flex plan.

Plans will be active the day housing opens for the Fall 2021 semester, which is August 10.
