Catering And Food Service On Campus

Oversight responsibility for all food service on campus is through Dining Services and Contract Operations. Effective July 5, 2015, University of Alaska Fairbanks entered into a dining services contract with Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services, doing business at UAF as Chartwells, UAF Dining and UAF Catering, to providing campus food services.

Planning An Event

All events held on the UAF campus that are opened to the public must be approved by the UAF events committee. Please submit the UAF Events Request Form for review.

Off-Campus Vendors

(including grocery stores and donations)

To use a vendor other than Chartwells Catering and/or provide store bought or donated items for your event a Food Liability Release Request Form must be submitted for approval prior to the event. Send requests to uaf-dining@alaska.edu at least two (2) weeks in advance to ensure time for processing. Please attach a menu or items for purchase and an estimate of cost from proposed vendor (i.e. outside caterer or grocery store, etc). 

The signed and approved Food Liability Release Request exempts UAF Dining Services and Contract Operations from any responsibility for that food service. The caterer, donor or group organizing the event assumes responsibility for equipment set-up, service, cleaning and adherence to food safety guidelines.

Individuals serving alcohol must comply with all AMCO laws and regulations.
