Spring 2024 Hours


All Housing Residents, excluding those residing in Family Housing, are required to purchase a meal plan. 

For students who are under the age of 21 and have completed fewer than 24 credits, the minimum meal plan is the 11 meal plan. For students at least 21 years of age or who have completed 24 credits, the minimum meal plan is the 4 meal plan.

Meal plans:

  • Can be used at two campus dining locations including the Lakeside Grill and Market, and Spike's Cafe.
  • Can be used at Vending Machines on campus in John Pugh Hall, the Student Housing Lodge, and Egan Classroom wing.
  • Are declining balance - that is, a $750 dollar meal plan means that you can spend $750 at any campus dining location. UAS does not utilize all-you-can-eat meal swipes.
  • Expire at the end of each semester. Any unused funds at the end of the semester will be removed from your meal plan and are non-refundable.
  • Are financial aid eligible. As long as you have enough aid, your meal plan can be paid for with financial aid awards.

Weekly Breakdown of Meal Plan Spending

The table below will help you determine if you are on track, behind, or ahead on the spending of your meal plan. The "beginning balance" will reset at the beginning of each semester. At the end of each week (Friday), check your balance against this table. Week 1 is the Friday of the first week of class.

The name of each meal plan can also guide your spending: that is how many meals your meal plan is designed to purchase each week, utilizing a calculation of an average $11 meal.
