All-access and continuous dining, new locations and restructured meal plans make eating on campus even easier.
There are no restrictions when you can go into the dining hall, and meal plan enrollment ensures that you can go to the dining hall as often as you like, unlimited visits. Whether you want to grab an ice cream or sit down to a full meal, there are no limitations on going to the dining hall if you are on a Purple Meal Plan.
The numbers in the new meal plans (15, 40, 70) refer to the number of food court Pirate Meals students have to use at the food court locations (Chick-fil-A, Chili's, Subway, etc.) per semester. The Pirate Meal will be a specifically designed meal at each participating location.
Also, when using Pirate Meals, just the one "meal" will cover the entire cost of the purchase. Any product not covered under the Pirate Meal must be paid for with Pirate Bucks, cash or credit card.
All meal plans come with an allotment of Pirate Bucks. The fewer meals you have, the more Pirate Bucks your plan will come with. As always, Pirate Bucks can be added to student's meal plans at any time, either online or over the phone at (252) 328-3663.
With the new meal plans, Pirate Bucks are designed to be used as supplemental money for buying snacks, smaller items or for purchases at select retail locations that will not offer Pirate Meals, such as Starbucks, Java City, C-Stores and Einstein Bros. Bagels.
If the student wishes to make a purchase for an item not covered under a Pirate Meal, the total amount must be paid with Pirate Bucks, cash, or credit. Cash/Credit cards will be accepted at all locations, if the students wishes to make a purchase without having a meal plan.
The main benefit to the new meal plans is that the dining halls will be open for students on a near continuous basis. Under this system, the dining halls will become the primary dining location. Pirate Meals and Pirate Bucks will still be available for supplemental purchases. Please let us know if you have any more questions. For specific hours, prices and more call 252.ECU.FOOD.
