Meal Plans - Lion's Den

Dining Services Overview


At the Lion's Den Dining Hall, you may enjoy a contemporary, crowd-pleasing selection of many of your favorite foods along with some of our own tasty specialties.


In addition to the Dining Hall, the Food Court in the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center is in full operation with all your favorites including Chick-Fil-A Express, Starbucks, and several other "to go" items.


Meal Plan Policies and Terms

Residents at UAFS are required to purchase a meal plan. Whether you live in the Lion's Den or at Sebastian Commons, a meal plan is available to fit your lifestyle. Meal plans are per semester and are billed accordingly. During the period between the fall and spring semesters, students may adjust their meal plans to obtain a meal plan option that best suits their needs. During the first week of the semester, meal plans may be adjusted to a plan which contains equal or more Dining Dollars. Meal plans will not be billed to a student's account until the Housing Office receives a signed housing contract. Students moving in later in the semester may receive a pro-rated "meals per week" plan but the block plans may not be pro-rated.
