Dining Services

A Range of Options

Variety is the spice of life and UWA’s dining options serve it up across the board. From Young Hall Cafeteria’s (the Caf) wide selection of All-You-Care-to-Eat meals (classic home style meals, a pizza bar, deli sandwiches, hamburgers and fries, a salad bar and more) to Starbucks and our casual Grille Works eatery, choice abounds. Add to that an array of healthy, nutritious selections, and we can satisfy any appetite.

College is demanding, but your meal plan should be simple and flexible enough to meet your schedule. With convenient hours and several dining options, you’ll find what you need, day or night.

We understand that eating away from home may be a new experience for your student, and we're here to make the transition as smooth as possible. Our All Access Meal Plan and 9-Meal Plan options offer a convenient, flexible way to dine on campus.

The Tiger Card is the official UWA ID card, but it can be used for so much more. It covers everything from the Caf and other dining options (with a valid meal plan), to printing and copying in the Library and computer labs to the University Cinema, laundry services and more.

UWA is proud to have Aramark®, a professional food service corporation. as our official residential dining provider. Together, we work to make every meal an enjoyable, healthy experience for students, faculty and staff.
