be well fed

Your health, safety and peace of mind are important to us. In response to COVID-19, we have modified our meal plan options to better facilitate safety guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Meal plans will only be available to students living on campus, not including Baity Hill and Granville Towers. If conditions change and we are able to open meal plans up to other students we will inform students and the campus community. Students living off-campus or in Baity Hill or Granville Towers can add funds to their Convenience Account by going to the One Card portal.  Convenience Accounts can be used at all CDS locations other than Lenoir and Chase Dining Hall.  This will include additional food trucks and delivery options we are looking to bring to campus this fall. For up to date information, please check our FAQ page.

If during the Fall 2020 semester on-campus housing is no longer available due to COVID-19, the University’s current approach is to offer prorated dining refunds as it did in the spring semester.

For information regarding the cancellation of meal plans and other contractual information, please read our meal plan policies.

Check out our plans below to choose which one works best for you!



Our meal plans are voluntary annual, fall-to-spring contracts, which means when you sign up in the fall, you’ll pay half in the fall semester and then you’ll automatically be billed for the spring semester portion of your plan.

All meal plan prices are per semester and include tax. Prices listed are for 2020-2021 school year. All On Campus Plans are annual fall-to-spring contracts that automatically renew. 

Unused Meal Swipes for ALL PLANS expire early Thursday morning.
