For a UNG student, the Nighthawks ID Card is an essential component of the college living and learning environment. All University of North Georgia students receive a Nighthawks Card that serves as their student identification card, provides access to their residence hall, campus facilities and events, dining and library services, and a means for campus refunds.
Students should carry their Nighthawks Card at all times. For students’ convenience, the Nighthawks Card also includes CampusCash.
CampusCash is a flexible spending account used to cover the student’s expenses including textbooks, photocopies, food and vending needs without the need for a credit card or cash. For more information, please visit the UNG Card Services online at http://ung.edu/ung-card-office/ or 706-864-1404.
The state-of-the-art Dining Hall offers a tour of the world, as you travel from the Southern Kitchen to the Mongolian Grill, then to the Italian Marketplace featuring a wood-fired brick pizza oven, or to any of the other many destinations. If you’re looking for quick and delicious food on the run, then head over to Java City in the library, the food court in Hoag Student Center that has Einstein’s Bagels, Miso Sushi, 1873 Grille, and Habaneros. P.O.D. Express in the building or Starbucks, adjacent to the bookstore are also great places to grab refreshment.
All traditional residence hall students and suite-style residents are required to purchase a meal plan. Students are initially assigned to the All Access Plan (the most economical plan, with unlimited access to the Dining Hall during all open hours of operation), but may opt to enroll in the Social Light Plan (15 meals/week in the Dining Hall) or the Master Mix (10/meals per week in the Dining Hall) before or during drop-add.
