Meal plans can be purchased online and placed on your Nautilus Card.
Why eat on campus?
We view the dining program not only from a nutritional standpoint but also as an important social aspect of campus life. By offering meal plan options to resident and commuter students, as well as faculty and staff, it encourages the community to explore new cuisines and also meet new people and make new friends. Dining on campus allows us to take part in the socializing that goes on during meals which opens up opportunities to interact outside the classroom and departmental offices.
New Resident Students: If you will be living on campus during your first two semesters at UWF, visit the "For Residents" web page on the Dining Services website for details about the plan, "ArgoBucks" flexible dollars, plan prices, and payment instructions. Meal Plans run on a weekly basis and may be used in the Nautilus Market only. ArgoBucks may be used at all Dining Services locations.
Commuter Students and Resident Students who would like a Voluntary Meal Plan: If you are a student living off campus, or if you are a resident student not required to buy a meal plan, but would like to purchase a Voluntary Meal Plan, please visit the "For Commuters" web page on the Dining Services website for details. Block Plans run on a semester basis and may be used in the Nautilus Market only. ArgoBucks may be used at all Dining Services locations.
How To Purchase My Meal Plan (pdf) – This handy one-page document will give you the details on how to pay for Mandatory or Voluntary Meal Plans, when they go on sale, and where to go to make changes.
Faculty and Staff: UWF employees may select from two options; the Faculty/Staff Meal Plan or a Nautilus Card Food Account. The Faculty/Staff Plan is a Block Plan consisting of 50 meals which may be used in the Nautilus Market and has no expireation date. The Nautilus Card Food Account is an ongoing payroll deduction program which may be used solely for the purchase of food in UWF Dining Services locations. Visit the "For Faculty/Staff" web page on the Dining Services website for details.
All of the above dining plans offer substantial savings off the door rate.
