IF YOU PLAN ON ATTENDING UCSB during the summer, you don't need to go hungry! Residential Dining Services offers a meal plan for both Summer Sessions A and B. Summer Meal Plan holders can eat at either Carrillo or De La Guerra Dining Commons on the Main Campus and at Portola on the Storke Campus when they are open for service.  Please see other details below.

During the Academic School Year please see our Off Campus Meal Plans.

What you need to know:

  • Sign up online for Session A or B only a week before or during your session. Please refer to the grid below.

  • Summer meal plans cannot be changed or canceled once they are purchased.

  • Session A meal plans will be sold on Monday, June 13th until Sunday, July 22nd, 2022.

  • Session B meal plans will be sold on Monday, July 25th until Sunday, August 26th, 2022.

  • You decide how many meals you eat each week — your meal card does not “reset” at the end of the week.

  • One meal (card tap) per meal period only.

  • The purchase of this meal plan is for the meal plan holder only.

  • Meal hours vary in the summer. Weekly meal schedules are posted on the doors of all dining commons and on our Menus page.

  • Any unused meals are forfeited at the end of each summer session.

  • A color photo ACCESS card with an RFID chip that will tap at the dining commons card reader is required for every meal.

  • Black & White Access ‘ID’ cards, or cards without an RFID chip are not accepted. 

  • Excess meals are charged to the BA/RC account at the guest meal rate.

  • Sack meal service is not available.

NOTE: you may begin accessing meals during the purchasing period for the summer session. It may take up to 5-7 business days before charges appear on your BA/RC statements. At the dining commons lobby, please present the email confirmation received to your umail account as a meal plan proof of purchase, until the meal plan has been assigned on to your Access card.
