Resident Meal Plans for Fall 2017 / Spring 2018
Cal Dining's residential meal plans offer the flexibility and freedom that students need to dine with us however they want, whenever they want. Our combination of residential and retail services feature well-rounded options whether students are on-the-go or gathering with friends around a dining table.
Resident Meal Plan Basics
Students choose their Meal Plan type when signing their housing contract with Residential and Student Service Programs (RSSP). Changes to Meal Plans may be made during Fall and Spring Semesters by contacting the RSPP Office Cashiers or online under the RSSP Managing Your Account site. Meal Plan points are the currency with which students use their Meal Plan accounts.
