The UAF Dining Experience

UAF Dining offers a welcoming, affordable dining experience for Fairbanks residential and commuter students. With six locations on the Fairbanks campus, you will find something to satisfy all your dining needs. All of them accept cash, BearBucks, Munch Money and credit cards. Please visit http://www.uaf.edu/dining/ for more information on each location.

Meal Plan Options

Meal plans are combinations of block dinners and Munch Money. All-you-care-to-eat block dinners can be used at Dine Forty-nine and as cash equivalency up to $7 at most Fairbanks campus dining locations (excluding Subway) from 4:30 p.m. until closing. Munch Money is used like cash at all dining locations and most vending machines on campus.

Freshmen residing on campus must select either the Block 105 or Block 75 meal plan.

Meal Plans

All freshmen living in campus housing may only select either Block 150 or Block 75.

Using Your Meal Plan

Blocks and Munch Money are accessed using the PolarExpress student ID card. With all meal plans, you have the option to eat at any campus dining location or to make purchases at most campus vending machines.

All students living in a residence hall are required to purchase a meal plan, with the exception of graduate students and residents living in the Sustainable Village. UAF also offers meal plans to students not living on campus. Students wishing to share meals with others may do so as long as they are present. For more information on meal plan options and plan details, please review the Dining Services program terms and conditions at http://www.uaf.edu/dining/.

All pricing is per semester. Students will automatically be enrolled in the same meal plan in the spring semester unless Dining Services is notified in writing of a different selection. These plans are nontransferable. All remaining block dinners will expire on the final day of each semester. Leftover Munch Money from the fall semester will be added to the spring meal plan, but expires at the end of the academic year in May if not used. Unused dinners and Munch Money will not be refunded.

Dining services on campus are provided by UAF partner Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services, an international food and facilities management services company. Check Dining Services’ website at http://www.uaf.edu/dining/ for additions or changes.
