Learn more about campus dining
APU’s Dining Services prides itself for providing exceptional value, delectable meals, and offerings that emphasize healthy, sustainable food options. For students living in the Atwood housing complex, the kitchen prepares “all you can eat options” for every meal including the weekend brunch. In addition, with advance notice, the dining staff can prepare “meals to go” for students who will be doing field work or otherwise cannot be in the dining room during the regular meal hours. Beginning this year, Segelhorst Hall and University Village residents receive $500 credit each semester allowing them to eat a meal in the McMillen Student Center or purchase items in the Farmer’s Market or buy espresso drinks at the coffee cart in Grant Hall.
Students not living on campus may also purchase meal packages by contacting Student Financial Services or Dining Services directly. Meals may not be transferred to any other person.
Campus Dining Expectations & Policies
- “Take what you want, but eat what you take.” That’s a motto we’d like you to consider as you make selections in the Atwood dining area. We want you to enjoy your experience with the dining service, but please try not to be wasteful while you are enjoying the all-you-care-to-eat-meals.
- Food obtained in the main cafeteria must be consumed in the cafeteria with the exception of to-go meals and sack lunches.
- Un-used meals may not be transferred to any other person.
- Dishes, glasses, and utensils must not be taken from the dining room. We ask that you bus your dishes using the bins near the elevator entrance to the kitchen.
- Alaska Health Laws require that you wear a shirt and shoes in the Atwood dining areas.
- If you have a guest visiting you on campus, they are welcome to dine with you in the dining room, but guests must pay for their meals. Credit cards and personal checks are accepted in addition to cash.
- Students not living on campus may purchase package meals by contacting Dining Services directly or Student Financial Services.
- If you reside in an Atwood building and you are away from campus due to a course trip lasting more than three days, you may request a pro-rated reimbursement of the food portion of your room and board costs.
- The Dean of Students approves any meal plan adjustments due to significant, documented medical concerns.
- With the exception of those who have immediate family members in the Anchorage area, all freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus. Our campus housing options vary in price, size, and exclusivity to suit a range of needs and preferences. See the list below for a description of housing options (all prices include utilities, room and a meal plan option suited to the housing unit).
