Key concepts and definitions

Meals: Meals allow student entrance into a dining hall when the resident dining locations are open (see below for effective dates and dining hall closures). Meals expire at the end of the semester.

Declining balance: Declining balance funds may be used at any dining location on campus. These funds roll over from semester to semester and expire at the end of the academic year in which it was purchased.

Meal plans: Meal plans are available only to UNC Charlotte students registered for courses in the semester for which the meal plan is purchased. These plans have a predesignated quantity of meals and/or declining balance funds billed to a student’s Student Account.

First day of meal service: The first day of meal service refers to the first-day students may use their meal swipes at the resident dining halls.

Sales taxes: North Carolina tax law requires the meal portion of a meal plan to be subject to sales tax; the associated Declining Balance portion of the meal plan is subject to sales tax at the point of sale.

Student meal plans 

The University offers a variety of summer meal plans to meet the diverse dining needs of students. 

Block Plans: Block plans provide students with a specific quantity of meals to use in our resident dining hall locations that decline upon use and funds in their declining balance to use at any on-campus dining location or off-campus partner.

Declining Balance Plans: Declining Balance Plans refers to a meal plan consisting solely of declining balance funds. Declining Balance plans are used primarily for retail food purchases on campus, although declining balance may also be used to purchase meals at on-campus resident dining halls.

Meal plan eligibility

Students may choose to purchase a block or declining balance meal plan for each summer session they attend but are not required to do so. Only students currently enrolled at UNC Charlotte may access accounts.

Effective dates, operational hours, and dining hall closures

Meal plan purchases are effective on each semester’s first meal service date as posted on the Auxiliary Services website.

Resident dining halls may be closed or operate on reduced hours between semesters and holidays. Meal plan prices reflect these closures.  Declining Balance funds can be used throughout campus at the University dining locations open during these times. Please refer to the dine on campus webpage for up-to-date campus dining hours.
