Pre-Arrival Instructions - Select a Meal Plan

For your convenience, UNCW has 15 dining locations on campus. The dining venues range from all you care to eat cafeterias, to cafes, coffee shops, and convenience stores.

Meal Swipes vs Food Dollars

UNCW meal plans are composed of a combination of meal swipes and food dollars. You can use your meal plan at any of the 15 campus dining locations by simply swiping your ID Card.

Meal Swipes

Students swipe their UNCW ID card at the dining location to deduct a meal from their weekly meal plan allotment. Meal Swipes can be used at the following locations:

  • Wagoner Hall - can be used for all-you-care-to-eat breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Wag Out - can be used for lunch and dinner at this take-out location.
  • Dub's Cafe - can be used for all-you-care-to-eat lunch and dinner.
  • Hawk's Nest - can be used from 6 p.m. - 10 p.m. Monday-Friday for a set combo meal at every station except for Quiznos, Chick-fil-A, Green Spot and sushi.
  • The Landing - can be used from 2:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. Monday-Friday for certain sandwich and salad selections.

Exception: For the Unlimited Lunch plus $250 Plan, unlimited meal swipes are allowed only Monday - Friday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m at Dub's Cafe, Wagoner Hall, Wag Out, and The Landing.

Food Dollars

Food dollars are used just like a debit card and can be redeemed at any of the UNCW campus dining locations. If you run low on food dollars, you may add additional food dollars at any time in $50 increments. Unused food dollars are not refunded at the end of the semester.
