All Access Meal Plans*
The ALL ACCESS portion of the All Access Meal Plans can be used for unlimited visits to our “all-you-care-to-eat” facilities: Upstairs McEwen, Upstairs Colonnades and Lakeside Dining Hall. Multiple visits may be made throughout the day for meals, snacks or just to sit with friends. Please allow 15-minutes between each meal swipe.
The MEAL EXCHANGE portion of the All Access + 14 and All Access + 7 meal plans may be used at Qdoba Mexican Grill, Winter Garden Cafe, Fountain Market (Croutons & Boar's Head), Java City at KBC, Varsity Sports Grill, Acorn Coffee Shop, Argo Tea, or Chick-fil-A to purchase a predetermined retail combo meal, called a Meal Exchange. A typical Meal Exchange includes an entrée, one side and a fountain drink. The All Access + 14 meal plan includes 14 Meal Exchanges per week and the All Access +7 meal plan includes 7 Meal Exchanges per week. Students on the All Access + 14 and All Access + 7 meal plans will receive their allotment of Meal Exchanges on Wednesday morning. Unused Meal Exchanges do not rollover and will expire Tuesday night. Meal Exchanges are not included with the All Access Basic plan.
The GUEST MEAL portion of the All Access Meal Plans can be used to treat a guest to a meal at any campus dining facility. Or use a guest meal on yourself if you run out of your weekly Meal Exchanges!
The MEAL DOLLARS associated with each plan can be used at any campus dining facility working on the same principle as a debit card. Each time you make a purchase, the total is subtracted from the balance in your account. They are convenient to use in between meals and at our residential restaurants or retail locations.
PLEASE NOTE: The NC legislature, as many other state legislatures have been doing over the last few years, has made a series of tax law changes. Among these was a change described below by the NC Department of Revenue:
Session Law 2013-316 signed into law August 23, 2013 by the Governor, repeals the exemption in G.S. 105-164.13(27) effective January 1, 2014. General Statute 105-164.13(27) provides an exemption for the sale at retail and the use, storage, or consumption in this State of "[p]repared food and food served to students in dining rooms regularly operated by State or private educational institutions or student organizations thereof." As a result of the repeal of the exemption, sales of prepared food and food served to students in dining rooms by institutions of higher education are subject to tax effective January 1, 2014.
The sales prices of student meal plans for the fall 2014 semester have been adjusted in order to accommodate sales tax due.
The adjusted fall meal plan prices are in the All-Access & Block Meal Plan charts below. To review some frequently asked questions about this change in legislature or meal plans please click here.
