Meal Plans and Dining Services

Dining Services

At the Lion’s Den Dining Hall, you may enjoy a contemporary, crowd-pleasing selection of many of your favorite foods along with some of our tasty specialties.

In addition to the Dining Hall, the Food Court in the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center is in full operation with all your favorites, including Slim Chickens, Starbucks, and several other to-go choices.


Meal Plan Policies and Terms

Residents at UAFS are required to purchase a meal plan. Whether you live in the Lion’s Den or Sebastian Commons, a meal plan that fits your lifestyle is available. Meal plans are per semester and are billed accordingly. Students may change their meal plans between the fall and spring semesters to obtain their best option.

During the first week of the semester, meal plans may be adjusted to a plan containing equal or more Dining Dollars. Meal plans will not be billed to a student’s account until the Housing Office receives a signed housing contract. Students moving in later in the semester may receive a pro-rated meals-per-week plan, but the block plans may not be pro-rated.
