Housing Contract Dining Plan Options

Your Housing contract INCLUDES a Dining Plan. You choose the amount of Dining Dollars you’ll have in your plan.

Dining Dollars are linked to your campus ID card and each purchase is automatically deducted from your account balance—just like a bank debit card. Your entire Dining Dollar balance is available at move-in, so you can budget throughout the year. All items are a la carte! Eat light one day, splurge the next, shop in the markets for groceries, and more.

  • 8 restaurants
  • 5 markets open until 11pm

Meal plans are designed to be low cost and will not support 3 meals per day, 7 days per week. Dining dollar needs and eating habits are unique, so utilization will vary from student to student.

Special Dietary Needs: Whether your special diet is medically necessitated or a cultural/lifestyle choice, you have access to an on-site Registered Dietitian who can assist you in your daily meal planning needs. Contact HDHdietitian@ucsd.edu to request additional information.
