On-Campus Living


Dining Procedures

One of our main goals is to provide a pleasant, clean, comfortable, and satisfying dining experience for everyone. In order to meet this goal, we ask for your assistance with the following procedures:

  • Please remove dishes and disposables from your table when you have finished dining.
  • Please refrain from taking dishes or utensils from the dining area.
  • Remember that meal cards are non-transferable and meal plans cannot be used by anyone other than the purchaser.  If you’d like to treat someone to a meal swipe from your card, you can, but you must be present to swipe the card.
  • Patrons are not authorized to remove any food from the Creekside Eatery outside of what will fit inside a UHDCS issued to-go.
  • You can use one meal swipe to fill one to-go container. Please do not eat from a to-go container in the dining area and then fill it again--this would count as two meal swipes.

Dietary Needs

The UAA Seawolf Dining staff is more than happy to do anything we can to cater to your particular dietary needs, including vegan and gluten free options, allergy alternatives, diabetic options, and reusable to-go boxes for when you want to take your meal back to your room. For more information, please contact Creekside Dining at 907-751-7426.

  • 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 will contain your dining information. It includes your meal plan selection and account balance, allowing you to use it at all dining locations campus wide. WOLFbucks may also be used at some off-campus restaurant locations. Check out https://www.uaa.alaska.edu/wolfcard/ for more details. You’ll never have to worry about scrambling for change or carrying more than one card while you’re on campus. WOLFcard balance can also be checked through the housing office.

    Lost or Stolen Cards

    Notification of lost or stolen cards should be made immediately upon discovery of loss to either the WOLFcard Office (786-4695) during normal business hours (9:00 AM -5:00 PM) or to University Police (786-1120) after hours. Notification should be made in person if possible. The account holder assumes all responsibility for use and/or purchases made by unauthorized persons using a lost or stolen card until the loss has been reported to the appropriate office. The missing card will be deactivated immediately upon notification of its loss. A replacement fee will be charged for lost, stolen or damaged cards.
