Gator Dining Services contracts with Aramark as the official food service provider for the University of Florida. There are over 45 locations on campus, including two residential dining halls and favorite national brands such as Subway, Chick-fil-A, Einstein Bros Bagels, Panda Express, Pollo Tropical, Starbucks Coffee and Moe’s Southwest Grill.
Gator Dining Services offers both Meal Plans and Declining Balance Accounts. Both plans work off a magnetic strip on your Gator 1 Central ID Card. Once a plan is purchased, the account will be automatically activated. All account balances will carry over each semester enrolled.
Mail, Document, and Passport Services
Each year, the Mail, Document, and Passport Services office processes over 5,000 passport applications. As an officially licensed passport center, any one, not just those affiliated with UF, is eligible to apply for a passport. Over 3 million pieces of mail are processed at this facility.
Located in the Welcome Center, adjacent to the J. Wayne Reitz Union, the UF Bookstore is your all in one stop for textbooks, supplies, technology and Gator gear.
The UF All Access electronic textbook program, run by the UF Bookstore, is designed to help students afford the cost of higher education through the purchase of digital textbooks. Since inception in 2012, UF All Access has saved students millions of dollars compared to purchased hard-bound textbooks. Also offered through the UF Bookstore is the Textbook Deferred Payment option, which allows the purchase of textbooks and supplies using your Gator 1 Card.
Those with a valid Gator 1 Card are encouraged to open an account with Vending Services. Students who make purchases using their Gator 1 Card are eligible for a discount on all Pepsi and Canteen products. There are over 725 vending machines at UF and the UF Health Science Center. Account refunds are available after graduation, transferal or withdrawal.
Wells Fargo Banking Services
Wells Fargo and the University of Florida have teamed up to offer optional banking convenience with your linked Gator 1 Card. Use it as your official student ID, for campus privileges, and for your day-to-day financial needs on and off campus when it’s linked to a Wells Fargo Everyday Checking account.
