Whether you are looking for a large meal or a small snack, our All-Access plans allow you to come and go as often as you'd like during serving hours at Bolton, Snelling, Oglethorpe, the Village Summit, and the Niche. And the 180 Block + 300 Paw Points plan, which provides you with approximately two meals in the dining commons per day, can be used at your convenience throughout the semester. View all of your meal plan options below!

The All-Access meal plan saves you an estimated $4.43 - $10.50* per meal off the regular entry price for non-meal plan holders! And the 180 Block + 300 Paw Points meal plan saves you an estimated $2.00 - $6.35 per meal off the regular price! Plus, when you dine on the meal plan you don’t have to worry about paying tax or extra fees and Paw Points automatically save you 8% at retail dining locations.

*One block is equivalent to one entry into the dining commons (for example, a 180 block plan provides you with 180 meals throughout the semester). Blocks do not roll from one semester to the next so it is to your advantage to use your blocks each semester so as to not forfeit any unused blocks from fall to spring.


Add Paw Points to your plan for even more flexibility!

Paw Points are valid at over 20 on-campus retail dining locations such as Chick-fil-A, Panda Express, or Starbucks as well as Vending machines. Since Paw Points are part of the meal plan, purchases are tax-free. One Paw Point is equivalent to one tax-free dollar. Points are deducted with each purchase. Balances remain active for one-year after last purchase. You can learn more about how to use Paw Points here.

Free Paw Points Included with Sign-Up!

You receive a 10% Paw Point bonus upon initial purchase of a 5 or 7-day All-access plan with Paw Points. For example, if you purchase a 7-day plan with 250 Paw Points, your receive 25 free points for a total of 275 per semester. Additional Paw Points can be added in increments of 50 when your balance drops below 50 points. However, the 10% bonus Paw Points will not apply for this additional purchase. Balances remain active for one-year after last purchase.

Here's what others are saying about the UGA meal plan:

Ethan Dawidowicz

I have the 180 blocks plus 300 Paw Points which averages out to about 2 meals a day at the dining halls, but that is more than enough. With the addition of Paw Points, I’m offered a variety of restaurants I can enjoy! 

—Ethan Dawidowicz, UGA '24


Sophia Noel Rodriguez

I am on the 7 Day All-Access meal plan and I love the flexibility of being able to come into the dining halls anytime, meaning I can pop in to get a cup of coffee at O-House or a scone from Bolton whenever I want. I definitely make use of the full value of my plan!
