Before You Arrive

The University Dining Plan is provided for all residential students. The cost of the dining plan is included as part of your comprehensive fee. As part of the online billing statement, you will choose your dining plan through your HPU MyStuff account.

The Passport Card is the only form of payment accepted on campus and also contains a “General Account.” The General Account funds may be used at all dining locations on campus, the campus bookstore or at any of our 90+ Passport Partner locations throughout the city of High Point. Students can add funds to their Passport Card General Account through their MyStuff account when they are selecting their Meal Plan. 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 or through Blackboard.

We also recognize that many students have specific dietary needs that often require specially prepared items. In order to make these items easily identifiable, we have developed several dining icons. These icons are used to label unique food items at all 13 of our dining venues. If you would like to discuss your dietary needs, please contact the Hospitality Team at: hospitality@highpoint.edu
