Traditional Students

If you are a traditional student and plan to live on campus in one of our residence halls, you will automatically be enrolled in the All Access Meal Plan, which allows for unlimited meals per week.


For those students who plan to commute or live in The Oaks, you may pick a set number of meals to enjoy per semester in Belk Dining Hall, as well as dining dollars to use at any other dining location.

Graduate Students 

Graduate students who want to grab dinner or a snack on campus may pick a set number of meals to enjoy per semester in Belk Dining Hall, as well as dining dollars to use at any other dining location.


All faculty and staff of Meredith have the option of enjoying an all-you-care-to-eat meal in Belk Dining Hall for a discounted rate. Dining dollars can be added to your Campus ID.

Belk Dining Hall

Belk Dining Hall is the main dining facility on campus with an all-you-care-to-eat buffet-style set up. There are options for every diet and appetite, including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. Choose from traditional, home-style meals and grilled favorites, to a full service salad bar, deli, rotisserie, and soups. And you can’t forget the fresh-made desserts. 

BeeHive Cafe'

If you happen to be around the Cate Center and get a little hungry, the BeeHive Café is a popular stop. It’s a great place to use your dining dollars. There’s a little something for everyone – Grille Works, Sandwich Shack, Chobani Bar, Chick-fil-A sandwiches, pizza, and more. And they serve Starbucks. 

Food for Thought

If you are cramming for an exam or need a quick break from a study session, Food for Thought, located in the library, offers plenty of grab ‘n go options, including sandwiches, snacks, and chips. You also have your choice of coffee beverage options and bottled drinks. 


Meredith offers a variety of catering services on campus through Oak Leaf Catering. We have catering services available to meet your every need and taste – from coffee for a morning meeting to customized menus for receptions and special events.
