NC State students assigned to University Towers by NS State are required to have a University Towers Meal Plan. You are not required to have a meal plan with NC State Dining Services, however you may elect to purchase a commuter plan from NC State if you are looking for maximum Dining flexibility. We understand many of our residents are dependent on financial aid. Therefore, University Towers meal plans can be purchased in their entirety or by deposit and thereafter paying your remaining balance. The deadline for payments is August 21st. Please contact Jason Souza at if you have any questions.
