What meal plan can I purchase?
That depends on where you live and your class year. All students residing in a residence hall (Cumberland, Garber, North, Pearce, Sanford, Weaver, and West) are required to purchase a meal plan. Freshmen may select either the Carte Blanche or the Green & Gold Meal Plan. Upperclassmen may select the Carte Blanche, Green & Gold Meal Plan, or the Monarch Meal Plan. Students residing in Cape Fear Commons Apartments, McLean, The Greek Houses, or off campus are not required to purchase a meal plan and may purchase a residential meal plan or an apartment/ commuter meal plan.
How does the Carte Blanche meal plan work?
Not just for big eaters! The Carte Blanche meal plan is like having mom's kitchen right outside your residence hall. Grab what you want, when you want it or just go to socialize. The Carte Blanche meal plan gives you unlimited access to Green & Gold Dining Hall. This includes meals, snacks or to visit with friends. Just swipe your student ID at the door to identify that you are a Carte Blanche meal plan member.
When does the meal plan begin?
Meal Plans start on the first day the residence halls are open for each semester (August 11, 2016 for fall 2016; January 7, 2017 for spring 2017).
When does the meal plan end?
Meal plans end for the fall 2016 semester on Saturday, December 17, 2016 and for the spring 2017 semester on Saturday, May 6, 2017. Unused Monarch Dollars associated with the Meal Plan will roll over from the fall to spring semester but not from the spring to fall semester (expire at the end of the spring semester on Saturday, May 6, 2017). Monarch Dollars added to your account do not expire and carry over each semester as long as you remain enrolled at the University.
When do I receive my meals?
The meal week runs from Sunday morning (12:00 am) to Saturday night (11:59 pm). Unused meals on the Green & Gold and Monarch plans do not carry forward to the next week. Students on the Carte Blanche meal plan will always have meals available (from residence hall opening through residence hall closing).
Can I carry meals over to the next week or next semester?
Meals on the Carte Blanche, Green & Gold, or Monarch Plans cannot be carried over to the next week. The weekly meal cycle starts every Sunday at 12:00 am.
Meals on the Block Meal Plans are distributed at the beginning of the semester, and expire at the end of the semester. Note: Unused block meals do not roll over from semester to semester.
Will my Monarch Dollars carry over to the next semester?
Unused Monarch Dollars associated with the Meal Plan will roll over from the fall to spring semester but not from the spring to fall semester (expire at the end of the spring semester on Saturday, May 6, 2017). Monarch Dollars added to your account do not expire and carry over each semester as long as you remain enrolled at the University.
Can I change my meal plan?

Can I treat a friend to a meal?
