Dining Services for Students Living On Campus
High Point University offers a variety of dining plans for students residing in university housing. The cost of the dining plan is included in your basic Housing and Dining semester charge.
Residential students may choose one of these four dining plan options:
(All options are the same cost no matter which you choose)
*DINING DOLLARS: Dining Dollars supplement the weekly meal allowance and may be used in all dining service locations on campus, except 1924 PRIME Steakhouse. The dining dollar amount is per semester. Unused dining dollars do not transfer from semester to semester.
ALL YOU CARE TO EAT
These locations provide a variety of food options while offering “all-you-care-to-eat” dining. Each time a meal is eaten in one of these locations, one meal is subtracted from the weekly meal allowance. Meals are not carried over from week to week.
All You Care To Eat locations: The Cafe and the Farmers Market.
Regardless of the meal plan you choose, seven of your total weekly meals may be used as Magic Meals at any of our dining locations. Students may use one of their seven Magic Meals per week at 1924 PRIME. Magic Meals do not carry over from week to week.
Magic Meal Locations: Starbucks Slane Center, Starbucks at Cottrell Hall, Chick-fil-A, 1924 PRIME, The Point, Subway, Great Day Bakery, The C-Store University Center and Yadkin Hall.

The “HPU Cashless Campus” model ensures that our students are able to enjoy the extraordinary services we provide for their exclusive use in a safe and secure environment. The Passport Card is the only form of payment accepted on campus. Students will need to use their HPU Passport Card when hosting family and friends. The Passport Card also contains a “General Account.” The General Account funds may be used at all dining locations on campus, the campus bookstore or at nearly 100 Passport Partner locations throughout the city of High Point. Students and parents may make cash and credit/debit card deposits to the passport card by using one of our “Passport ATM” machines located throughout campus.

Important: North Carolina State Sales Tax information
The North Carolina General Assembly made significant changes to the Sales and Use Tax Code during its 2013 General Session. One of the changes will have an impact on how much students pay for meals at universities in North Carolina. Previously, student at higher education institutions in North Carolina were exempt from paying sales tax when they purchased food on campus. However this exemption, G.S. 105-164.13(27) was repealed by the North Carolina tax reform bill (H998) SL 2013-316. The University has been advised that dining plans will be subject to North Carolina sales tax effective with the 2014 summer dining plans. The sales tax of 6.75% will appear as a separate line item on your semester billing statements.
