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.
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.
