*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.


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.

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  However this exemption,  G.S. 105-164.13(27) was repealed by the North Carolina tax reform bill (H998) SL 2013-316.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.
