Students can choose from plans ranging from 19 meals each week to 60 meals a semester, served in the Lola Tilly Commons. Meals in the commons are served "all you care to eat" style. Options include a large salad bar, pizza station, carved meats, grilled items, ice cream and the classics. Lola Tilly Commons is located on lower campus in front of McIntosh, Nerland and Stevens halls. The commons is closed during winter and spring break.

Meals are accessed using the PolarExpress Card (student ID card). If you choose a plan with Munch Money you have the option of using the PolarExpress Card to eat at any of the nine campus dining locations or make purchases in most campus vending machines. Students living in residence halls are required to purchase a meal plan unless assigned to Cutler Apartments or Wickersham Hall. Students wishing to share meals with others may use Munch Money, or purchase the 170 block plan which includes guest privileges. Dining services on campus are provided by UAF partner NANA/Sodexho, an international food and facilities management services company.
