Meals plans have changed for fall and are subject to change for the spring semester. Every student is automatically signed up for the 14 meal/week plan. The window to change your Fall 2020 dining plan August 4- August 28 and is done via your account. If you would like to change your Spring 2021 plan designation, you must do so before January 25, 2021 via your account.

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)


Our new meal plan includes Dining Dollars that are loaded and ready for use on day one! Dining Dollars work just like the general fund on your passport, and are accepted at all HPU Dining locations, except 1924 Prime Steakhouse. Keep in mind, Dining Dollars do NOT replenish each week.


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.


New for this semester, all meals are magic meals. This magic meal plan gives you flexibility to choose meals from any of our restaurants, coffee shops or markets on campus. At the Café and Farmers Market, you can enjoy an all-you-care-to eat meal. At our retail restaurants, coffee shops or markets, a magic meal is a combo that typically includes an entrée, side, and drink.

These combos may vary per retail restaurant.


Skip the lines! Mobile ordering is a simple, convenient way to order, pay and pick up. You can browse our restaurants and menus, order from your favorite campus spots, and pay with your meal plan. Using the app, allows you to know when to expect your food and get notified when your food is ready. You can also use the app to reserve a spot at our Café and Farmers Market restaurants. Download “transact mobile ordering” app to get started.

Cashless Campus & The Passport Card General Account

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.
