About Auxiliary Services

The Auxiliary Services Department of Albany State University (ASU) is comprised of the bookstore, vending operations, dining services to include meal plans, card services, print/copy services, and student transportation service.

Units are either owned, operated or managed by Albany State University and the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia or services are contracted with an outside vendor.  All units operate independently of each other.  It is the responsibility of the Director of Auxiliary Services to ensure that all units function efficiently within contractual guidelines as well as within the rules and regulations set forth by the State of Georgia, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia and the University.

The ASU Bookstore is operated and managed by Follett Higher Education Group (FHEG). Bookstore locations are:

Dining/food service operations are provided through a management agreement with Aladdin, a division of Elior, North America.  The dining contractor is responsible for all dining operations on campus to include catering for on-campus events as well as for third-party organizations renting facilities on campus. Catering policies mandate that requests for food, beverages, refreshments, etc. be arranged through the dining contractor on campus at the time of the event.

Students residing in residence halls owned, operated or managed by the University are required to purchase a meal plan; however, students may choose which meal plan best suits his/her needs.  Exceptions may apply per residence hall and will be described on the meal plan contracts.  Questions and issues related to meal plans should be directed to the Auxiliary Services Specialist at mealplans@asurams.edu or via phone at 229-500-2886.  Information and contracts for meal plans for commuter students, faculty and staff should also be addressed to the Auxiliary Services Specialist. 

Funds from auxiliary unit revenues must be used to fund the operation of each respective unit. This may include but is not limited to replacing equipment, computers, point-of-sale systems, dining equipment, general operation, and personal services expenses.  No student, state or federal funds may be used to purchase any product or equipment that is considered a part of an auxiliary operation. All costs incurred while operating auxiliary units must be paid from revenue generated from the sale of products and services.

ASU is committed to serving the students, faculty, and staff in a friendly and professional environment.  The department is student-oriented and customer service centered.
