The UAF Dining Experience

UAF offers six different meal plans for Fairbanks residential and commuter students. Students can choose from plans ranging from 75 meals per semester to an unlimited number of meals per semester. Breakfast is served at Wood Center Food Court, while lunch and dinner, as well as brunch on the weekend, is served at Lola Tilly Commons.

Meals are served "all you care to eat" style. Options at Lola Tilly Commons include a large salad bar, soup station, pasta station, pizza station, grilled items and daily specials, sandwich bar, vegan and vegetarian dishes, and an ice cream and dessert station. Lola Tilly Commons is located on lower campus in front of McIntosh, Nerland, and Stevens halls. The commons is closed during the winter and spring breaks.

Please review your dining contract for more details.

Meal Plans

Using your meal plan

Meals are accessed using the PolarExpress student ID card. With Munch Money that accompanies your plan you have the option of using the PolarExpress Card to eat at any of the campus dining locations or to make purchases at most campus vending machines.

All residence hall students are required to purchase a meal plan, with the exception of residents living in Cutler Apartment Complex, Wickersham Hall and graduate students. Students who do not live on campus but are interested in purchasing a meal plan can contact Dining Services at 907-474-6661. Students wishing to share meals with others may use Munch Money, or purchase the Denali, Talkeetna, Nanook, or Upper Classman Block meal plan, all of which include guest privileges.

Dining services on campus are provided by UAF partner NANA/Sodexho, an international food and facilities management services company. Check Dining Services' website at www.uafdining.com for additions or changes.
