Food Services

The University of West Alabama residential dining program is operated by ARAMARK,® a professional food service corporation. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are a time of camaraderie when friends, professors and guests all come together to enjoy a fine meal and each other's company.

Affectionately referred to as “The CAF,” the Young Hall Cafeteria offers a wide selection of all-you-can-eat meals. Meal choices include classic home style meals, a pizza bar, deli sandwiches, hamburgers and fries, and a salad bar.

All first-year freshmen, and students that live in a residence hall room without kitchen facilities, are required to purchase the “All Access Meal Plan.” The Nine Meal Plan is required of all other residents.  Hoover residents who have lived on the UWA campus for at least two semesters are exempt from the meal plan requirement.

All Access Meal Plan:

The All Access plan offers unlimited meals in the CAF. This plan is perfect for the healthy snacker or someone with a hearty appetite.  Students on the All Access meal plan have unlimited access to the CAF during its hours of operation, seven days a week. Come in for lunch, come back later for a mid-afternoon snack, stop by for a soft drink, come in for an early supper and then come back for dessert or an evening snack. The All Access Meal Plan is required of all first-year freshmen, and for all residents living in Gilbert Hall and Selden Hall.

Nine Meal Plan:  

The Nine Meal Plan allows you to eat nine meals per week, with a maximum of three meals per day. This plan is required of residents living in Reed, Patterson, Stickney and Hoover if they do not select the All Access Meal Plan..
