Special Dinners

Here at the Agora, we like to mix it up and keep things exciting! Each month, we plan and prepare a special themed dinner for our residents. In addition to that, we offer periodical specials such as freshly prepared Soup Bars, Chili Bars, and innovative Food Showcases provided by our suppliers.

Meal Plans

 
 

2020-2021 MEAL PLANS

The Agora is our on-site eatery and offers 3 different meal plans for Granville residents as well as several non-resident meal plans. A meal plan is included with the rent and cannot be excluded from your lease. The Agora operates as an all-you-care to eat facility which means that once a resident or customer comes in, they are welcome to visit as many food stations as they would like and return for unlimited seconds. Therefore, meal swipes should be treated as entrance tickets, rather than literal meals. However, for the sake of instruction, we may refer to “entrances” as “swipes.”

Meal plans are not interchangeable with campus dining facilities. The Granville Towers meal plan gives students access to the Agora only. Food at dining facilities on campus must be purchased a la carte or with Carolina Dining Services.
 

  • Unlimited Meal Plan:
    These meals are only to be used by the resident but includes 10 guest passes that can be used for others.
     
  • Block Plans:
    · 100 meals per semester / Approximately 6 Meals per week
    · 160 meals per semester / Approximately 10 Meals per week

    Block meals reference the number of entrances into the Agora that a student has throughout the course of the semester. Residents can use their block meals for themselves and for guests. The block plan offers flexibility as a student may use more meals during one week over another or even towards the beginning of the semester as opposed to the end. However, it is a set amount that needs to be budgeted over the course of the semester.
     
  • 10 Block Reload:
    If a resident does not wish to upgrade from the 100 block to the 160 block because they only need a small number of meals, a 10-block reload can be purchased for $90 in the Business Office. These additional 10 meals will be added to the resident’s Granville ID where the meal plan is stored and these meals will expire at the end of the semester, just like their initial block meals.
