|A Membership to dining is essential to your success at The University of West Alabama! Between attending classes, studying and personal responsibilities, who has time to worry about cooking, cleaning and shopping? Relax, we know how you feel and we've put together some dining options just for you. Meals in a membership are sold to you at a discount, instead of paying door prices at our locations. And parents… it guarantees your student will get meals from the first day of class to the last day of exams so you won't be getting frantic calls to send money for food. Even better, meal memberships provide students the security of guaranteed "unlimited seconds" meals, and there is never any worry about carrying cash.
Here’s how it works
Every meal plan is made up of two parts that work together to create one plan
you can always rely on.
Weekly Meal Allowance
Weekly all-you-care-to-eat meals to use at the Young Hall Caf. Select the meals per week that fits your dining habits!
Each UWA student with 7 hours or more will automatically have $150 Dining Dollars per semester. Dining Dollars can be used at the Tiger Alley Deli or Young Hall Caf. You can also use Dining Dollars at our newest location, Java City in Julia Tutwiler Library that serves an assortment of coffee beverages and delicious pastries! Dining Dollars supplement your meals and can be used at all UWA Dining locations.
Once you have a meal plan, your student ID works like a debit card. Just swipe your card and the meal charge is deducted from your account.
Choose the plan that fits
There are many affordable meal plan options. Just pick the one that works best for you, and you won’t have to worry about carrying cash or keeping your mini fridge stocked all semester.
