2016-2017 Meal plans contain a combination of block dinners and Munch Money.

Block Dinners are used in Dine Forty-nine for all-you-care-to-eat dinner and exchanged for up to a $7.00 equivalency at most UAF campus dining locations (excluding Subway) from 4:30 p.m. until closing. 

Munch Money is used like cash at all dining locations and vending machines on campus.  

Freshmen residing on campus must select either Block 105 or Block 75. 

  • All pricing is per semester.
  • The student will automatically be enrolled in the same meal plan in the Spring semester, unless UAF Dining Services is notified in writing of a different selection.
  • Remaining block dinners will expire on the final day of the semester.
  • Block equivalency is not redeemable for cash.
  • Leftover Munch Money in the Fall semester will be added to the Spring meal plan. However, all unused Munch Money expires at the end of the academic year after May 8, 2017.
  • Unused blocks and Munch Money will not be refunded.

Please note: A default plan will automatically be assigned if an alternate plan is not selected prior to January 4, 2017. The default plan is determined by housing assignment:

  • Cutler residents -  Block 15
  • Wickersham residents - Gold Plan
  • All other residents - Block 105
