Our Meal Plans

First-Year Athletic

Welcome to UVA! Enjoy the convenience of eating on Grounds with just a swipe of your ID card.  You will love our amazing dining halls that form the foundation of the dining program.

Classes and extracurriculars can be demanding, so your meal plan should be effortless and on your schedule!

  • You can enjoy a relaxing lunch with friends or grab something quick
  • Choose your favorites, make a colorful plate, and get on your way back to class in plenty of time
  • Enjoy cafes, restaurants, and coffee shops just steps from your dorm room
  • You can easily check nutrition info; pick hot or cold entrees, sides and desserts; try new dishes or old favorite; and find gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan selections.

You deserve the best...and a meal plan provides it with value built in!


If you are an NCAA athlete who is a First-Year, you can find your meal plan here! Every First-Year student is required to have an All-Access meal plan for both semesters. This meal plan allows you to swipe into all-you-care-to-eat dining halls as many times as they would like daily, either 2 or 3 meal exchanges per day and 10 guest meals per semester. Students are then able to choose the amount of Flex Dollars they would like to add to their plan.

First years should sign up for a meal plan by July 1st or you will be defaulted into the All-Access plan with $150 Flex (the minimum amount available for the plan). However, if you wish to upgrade your plan to one with more flex dollars or need to change to a Brown, Hereford, Language or Athletic (NCAA) meal plan, you may do so by completing the Plan Change Form. While you do sign up for your plan through UVA Dine, you will be billed in SIS with all other UVA charges at a later date.
