Meal Plans

How the Meal Plan Works

Each meal plan provides a block of all-you-care-to-eat "meals" in the Creekside Eatery located on residential campus, along with varying amounts of "dining dollars" that may be used at all Seawolf Dining & Catering establishments across campus.

Housing students

Housing students can select a meal plan on their Housing Self-Service page via UAOnline during a designated time after room assignments are finalized.  Students will receive an email from the Housing Office once this option is available. If students are assigned to a residence hall, where a meal plan is required, but do not choose a meal plan via UAOnline, the default meal plan of 14 meals per week and $200 dining dollars will be automatically added to their student account before check-in. 

Meal plans are billed to student accounts once per semester at the beginning of each semester. Meal blocks and dining dollars are loaded onto your WOLFcard, allowing you to simply swipe your card for meals, coffee, snacks, etc.

WOLFcard Holders

All students, employees, faculty and staff with valid WOLFcards can purchase CAMPUS MEAL PLANS at the Housing Desk at Gorsuch Commons.

Please Note: NEW FOR 2017 housing meal plan holders are eligible for the COMPLETE CUISINE plan and are able to exchange "meal blocks" for an equivalent value of $8.00 towards purchases at all Seawolf Dining venues – including Subway, Caliente, Cuddy Market Place, Express, Borealis Brew and the Daily Grind.

  • Are Meal Cards transferable?
    Meal Cards are non-transferable. Meal cards cannot be used by anyone but the purchaser.
  • Can I use my Meal Plan to buy a guest meal?
    Plan participants are able to use more than one meal swipe per meal time—meaning that if mom and dad visit, or you wish to treat a friend to dinner, you are able to use as many swipes as you like on a single occasion.
  • Seconds Policy
    You never have to be too shy to ask for seconds with UAA Seawolf Dining. Our generous policy has created an “All-You-Care-To-Eat” environment at Creekside Commons, allowing you a second helping of breakfast, lunch and dinner favorites, all you have to do is ask!
    Meals-to-Go is available in the Creekside Eatery during all scheduled meal periods. All UAA Meal Plan students will receive one reusable Meals-to-Go container. After each use bring it back to the dining hall and exchange it for a newly cleaned and sanitized container.
  • Do unused MEALS carry over to next semester?
    Unused MEALS expire at the end of each semester and do not carry over.
  • Do unused DINING DOLLARS carry over?

    New for Fall 2016, unused Dining Dollars expire at the end of each semester and do not carry over.

  • Where can I use my Meal Plan and Dining Dollars?
    All dining venues run by Seawolf Dining accept meal exchanges (or the $8 equivalencies), dining dollars, cash, credit cards and Wolfbucks. New for 2017-2018, only those on the Complete Cuisine meal plan receive meal exchanges. NOTE: UAA Perk at the University Center, The Bookstore and the Lucy Cuddy Fine Dining Room in the Culinary Arts Department are not part of Seawolf Dining, and therefore do not accept meal swipes or dining dollars.
  • Using your WOLFcard

    UAA Seawolf Dining offers you the ease of using your WOLFcard at all of our dining locations. This means the same card you use to make purchases at the Bookstore or check out books at the library also contains your meal plan selection and account balances, allowing you to use it at all Seawolf dining locations campus wide.You’ll never have to worry about scrambling for change or carrying more than one card while you’re on campus!
