Meal Plan Rates

First-year On-Campus Residents

First-year students who have a housing contract through Housing and Food Services are required to purchase the All-Access Residential (formerly known as unlimited) meal plan. Per the terms and conditions of the housing agreement they are not eligible to purchase a Campus Dining Pass or to forego purchasing a meal plan.    

Residential All-Access Meal Plan

This plan offers students maximum flexibility to meet the needs of any eating schedule. Students have the freedom to eat a full meal or to just stop by to grab a snack. The format of this plan eliminates the need to budget meals per week and allows students to enjoy eating at the pace that works best for them. 

For added value the unlimited meal plan comes with fifteen additional meals that you can use to treat a guest.  

Summer Rates

A discounted summer rate is available for continuing residents who lived in university housing the previous spring semester, or who will continue living in university housing in the following fall semester. 

Students who do not live in university housing for the preceding spring or subsequent fall semesters  (i.e., summer housing only) will pay the semester-rate for the summer session.  

Students who are not staying for the full summer term should refer to Summer Housing for UC Students page for more information regarding how this may impact billing. 

  • Continuing residents who do not require housing for the full summer term may be billed at a nightly rate of $36 instead of the full summer discounted rate. 
  • Summer housing only students who are not staying the full summer may be billed a proportion of the full semester rate.

Room Type Single Occupancy Multiple Occupancy
Continuing resident summer rate $1,279

Break Rates

Students remaining in housing during breaks may be billed at a $36 nightly rate. 

During Winter Break and Spring Break, residents with a signed Housing agreement, and who are registered for spring semester classes, are eligible for break housing.

Residents may be relocated for the break period, depending on the status of their permanent residence hall community.


Dining Centers are closed during break periods. Closing dates may be found on the Food Services website; hours for other campus retail food locations are also listed.
