Meal Plans


How do I use my Meal Plan?

Meal Plans are added to UNT ID cards, and the ID cards are swiped at the register at any of our Dining Halls or Retail Restaurants.

You are responsible for protecting your UNT ID card and are liable for unauthorized purchases. Lost or stolen cards should be reported to the ID card office in the Eagle Student Services Center and Dining Services (940-565-2462) immediately so that the missing card can be deactivated.

If someone uses the Plan(s) on your lost or stolen card, please file a report with the UNT Police (police.unt.edu/reportcrime) immediately so they may investigate. Monitor usage of your Meal Plan online at anytime.


Where can I get a Student ID card?

ID cards are issued by UNT ID Systems in the Eagle Student Services Center (ESSC) #105. It takes at least one hour for new ID information to update across all UNT systems. If you plan to use your new ID immediately after it is issued, please contact us to make sure your meal plan is transferred to your new ID. 

Students must notify Dining Services if they receive a new ID card so that their Meal Plan Membership can be transferred to the new card.


How do I buy a Meal Plan?

All Meal Plans are purchased online. Look for the PURCHASE NOW button at the top of this page.

Then log in using your EUID and password and follow the prompts. Meal Plans are billed to your MyUNT account and may be paid using financial aid, scholarships, installments credit card and other forms of payment. 

Students who live on-campus will select their Meal Plan when applying for Housing.


How much does a Dining Hall meal cost?

No Meal Plan? No problem! See our Standard Door Rates for specific prices for Dining Hall meals.

We accept major credit cards, Flex, and contactless mobile payment. 


Can I take food out of a Dining Hall?

UNT’s dining halls are designed to be environmentally and economically sustainable, so we do not offer Dining Hall meals to-go. Take-out service increases costs and generates additional landfill waste on campus.


Can I let my friends use my meals?

Meal Plans that are charged per-visit (counted swipes) may be used to treat a Guest to a meal in a Dining Hall. Unlimited Plans may not be used for Guests.

Flex may be used to treat Guests in Dining Halls and Retail Restaurants. Simply pay the Standard Door Rate.


Where can I eat on the weekends?

Typically one Dining Hall and several Retail Restaurant options are open on the weekend during the long semesters. We recommend bookmarking Hours of Operation as hours may vary on holidays and during summer sessions.


What are the hours of Retail Restaurants?

Hours of Operation on our website is the best source for standard and special hours.


I have a lot of classes at Discovery Park. Will my Meal Plan work there?

Flex may be used at Discovery Perks Grill and Discovery Perks Market.

Dining Hall swipes may be used at Discovery Perks Grill at Discovery Park for a Discovery Perks Grill Combo Meal (daily entrée + side + fountain beverage).


Are freshmen required to have a meal plan?

All first-year student rooms on campus and some Upperclassman rooms on campus are bundled with a Meal Plan. See Dining Services Policies for more information. Simply select your Meal Plan when you apply for Housing.

Meal Plans are optional — but recommended — for Upperclassmen living in College Inn, Honors, Legends, Mozart, Santa Fe and Traditions, and all other UNT students living off-campus, including graduate students. Check out our Meal Plans and purchase now.


How many weeks are in a semester?

17 weeks. 


Where can we eat if there is a university closure due to inclement weather?

During inclement weather events, www.dining.unt.edu/hours is the best source for information.   


How can I change my Meal Plan?

Some Meal Plans may be changed during specific timeframes. To request a change, please complete our Change Request Form.
