College Meal Plan

All college freshmen and sophomores living in the residence halls must participate in the All Access meal plan. In the Bailey Street Apartments, college freshmen and sophomores must be on at least the 175-meal plan. College juniors and seniors living in the residence halls may choose to be on either the All Access or the 175-meal plan. College juniors and seniors living in the Bailey Street Apartments will not be required to be on a meal plan. Students residing in the Center Stage Apartments regardless of classification will not be required to purchase a meal plan.

All Access & 175-Meal Plan Prices      Meal Plan Brochure

The plans are based on a semester allotment of meals. The meal periods per week are breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Monday through Sunday. You are allowed only one meal per meal period. You receive your plan’s allotment of meals at the beginning of the semester. At the end of the fall semester, any unused meals expire and you receive a new allotment of meals at the beginning of the spring semester.

Once you use your allotment of meals for the semester, you’ll have to use cash, Pickle Dollars, Bonus Bucks or purchase a block plan to eat more meals in the dining hall.

Bonus Bucks for meal supplement
Students who are on either the All Access or 175-meal plans also receive Bonus Bucks. Bonus Bucks supplement the weekly meals and can be used for purchases in the Library Café, P.O.D. Market, Pickle Jar or the Dining Hall.  College students receive $170 a semester. Bonus Bucks left from the fall semester are transferred over into the spring semester. At the end of the spring semester, unused Bonus Bucks are non-refundable and cannot be transferred to the new academic year.

Block Meal Plans
Students who do not have a meal plan may purchase block meals. The meals may be purchased in blocks of 20, 30 or 50 meals. The more meals you purchase the lower the cost per meal. Student Block Meal plans expire at the end of each academic year. Meals may be used in the dining hall and will be deducted from your balance. The block meals can be purchased from the ARAMARK office on the ground floor of the Hanes Student Commons Room 128 or online at uncsa.campusdish.com. With the block meals you may swipe your card more than once during a meal to pay for another person’s meal. The meal exchange program is not available with the block meals.

Block Meal Prices*:
20 meal plan= $138.99 
30 meal plan= $196.75
50 meal plan= $307.29

* Taxes not included.


Treat a guest to a meal
Students who are on either the All Access or 175-meal plans receive five guest meals per semester. Guest Meals can be used to treat a friend, visitor, or parent to a delicious meal at the Dining Hall.
