faculty + lunch = flunch

In partnership with the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Education, DSG provides an opportunity for undergraduates to take their professors to lunch (or dinner).


Our hope is that students will use this opportunity to establish lasting relationships with faculty members they might not have developed in the classroom.

FLUNCH can be used between 11:30am - 4pm at the following venues.

  • The Commons

  • JBs

  • The Skillet

  • The Divinity Cafe

  • The East Campus Marketplace

  • Dame's Express at the Devil's Bistro on Central Campus, and

  • The Freeman Center (except Friday evening). 

Each student’s allotment of FLUNCH funds will be capped at $70 per semester. As always, each undergraduate student may host no more than 2 FLUNCHes per semester.  The FLUNCH program does not cover alcohol purchases. The last day to submit a FLUNCH request is the last day of class for a given semester; the last day to hold an approved FLUNCH is Friday of exam week each semester.



The FLUNCH request form for the 2016-17 academic year will open starting on FDOC. FLUNCH requests for the 2016 Fall Semester must be submitted by 11:59 pm on Friday, December 9th.  Approved FLUNCHes can be held through 5 pm on Friday, December 16. (From https://undergrad.duke.edu/programs/flunch)

Once approved, please give the cashier a printed copy of your approval email so your FLUNCH will be charged to the FLUNCH account.  If your approved FLUNCH was not correctly charged to FLUNCH, please submit the FLUNCH Inquiry form to request a review of your lunch charge.
