How It Works

Any person with a UA CatCard can access the Pantry. Changes to our schedule will occur during holidays and academic breaks. For up-to-date information on our days of operation, please see the Events calendar. We are located in the basement of the Student Union.

We are located on the 1st floor of the student union across from the Esports Arena and Catcard office. 

With questions about access or to request any disability-related accommodations that will facilitate your full participation in the Campus Pantry distributions or other Campus Pantry events, please contact:

UA Basic Needs Center

What to expect when visiting the Pantry

  1. When you arrive at the Pantry you will swipe your CatCard which will grant you access to the Pantry.**
  2. Pantry users can currently take up to the daily number items. Depending on donations for the week, we will offer additional items when available.
  3. Items always available at the Pantry include: canned foods, peanut butter, bread, eggs and produce. 
  4. When you leave the Pantry, a Campus Pantry team member will weigh your grocery bag. These weight estimates assist us in sharing the story of the Campus Pantry to ensure that no Wildcat goes hungry.


**Please note that students will never be asked to identify themselves through StudentID, CatCard number or any other identifier as part of the Campus Pantry community. Students do not need to “qualify” to visit the Pantry. Any CatCard holding member of the UA community is welcome to visit the Pantry.
