How the Meal Plan Works

 

How Do I Select a Meal Plan

Students can select a meal plan via their Housing Self-Service page on UAOnline during a designated time after room assignments are finalized for the fall and spring semesters. Students will receive an email from the Department of Residence Life 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 Weekly Servings plan of 14 meals per week and $400 dining dollars will be automatically added to their student account before check-in.

At the conclusion of the fall semester, students will have the opportunity to renew their current meal plan, or choose a different plan for the spring semester. If students are assigned to a residence hall, where a meal plan is required, but do not choose a new spring meal plan via their Housing Self-Service Page on UAOnline, their fall meal plan will be automatically renewed before the start of the new semester. Students can also change their meal plan between semesters by completing a Meal Plan Change Form at the Commons Information Desk.

Meal plan selections are binding as of 5:00 pm on the second Friday of instruction in the fall and spring semesters and may not be changed for that semester.

Which Meal Should I Choose

When choosing a meal plan, take a moment to review your schedule, travel, work hours, or anything else that might affect when you'll eat most of your meals so that you can make an informed decision on which meal plan to choose.

  • If you want to ensure that you don't run out of meals towards the end of the semester and that you have regular meals every week, then one of the two Weekly Servings plans, which gives you 14 or 18 meals per week may be the best option.
  • If you'd like flexibility in how you use your meals (you may use more meals one week and less the week after), then one of the Satiated Semester Plans of 175 or 225 meals would better suit your needs.
