UCLA Dining Services' meal plans are designed to make your life easier while providing convenient, healthy, and delicious options!
On-Campus Housing Resident Meal Plans
Meal plans are included in the on-campus housing contract rate for residents. Meal plans are selected at the time you accept your housing offer and make your initial contract payment. You may change your selected meal plan at any time during the school year by submitting a request using the "Ask A Question" tab at the Ask Housing web site. There is a $25 fee to change a meal plan.
For the 2023-2024 academic year, there will not be a meal plan change fee. Students can upgrade their meal plan at any time throughout the quarter. Downgrades will be available only until the first Sunday of each quarter. Downgrade requests received after the first Sunday will be processed the following quarter.
When choosing your meal plan, you should consider your class and work schedule, as well as the times of day you will be near the residence halls to eat conveniently. You may also want to consider the following questions: Is it common for me to commute home every weekend? Are my classes scheduled for most of the day? If so, you may want to explore other dining options available to you when you are gone over the weekends or on-campus during the day. For more information about the BruinCard debit card program, which allows you to deposit funds onto your BruinCard and use them at campus eateries or at many restaurants in Westwood Village, visit: http://www.bruincard.ucla.edu
Please Note: In accordance with On-Campus Housing regulations, UCLA housing is provided exclusively for residents and their authorized guests. Resident hosts are expected to be present with their guests at all times, including while dining in the restaurants. Allowing a person entrance into a building and leaving them unattended is prohibited. Residents are fully responsible for the conduct of their guests and for informing them of University rules and On-Campus Housing regulations. Thank you for your cooperation.
Meal plan options for On-Campus Housing Residents:
This is our most flexible meal plan. It offers a preset number of meals at the beginning of each academic quarter. Unused meals carry over from week to week and can be used at any time during the quarter for extra meals and snacks for you, your friends, or family. All meals must be used by the end of the quarter. You should monitor your meal usage to ensure that you have enough meals through the end of each quarter.
Our most cost-effective plan, the 19 Regular, is designed for students who wish to eat in the residential dining facilities most of the time. This plan provides for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Monday through Friday, as well as for brunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday. Unlike the 19 Premier, meals not eaten during the week cannot be accumulated or saved and do not carry over from week to week. 19 Regular allows only one entry per designated meal period.
This plan provides the same flexibility as 19 Premier, but it is designed for residents who generally go home on the weekends or who prefer to skip breakfast. The same carry-over privilege with 19 Premier also applies to 14 Premier.
This plan provides 14 meals per week. Meals that are not eaten during the week cannot be accumulated or saved. The 14 Regular allows only one entry per designated meal period.
This plan provides the same flexibility as the 19 Premier and 14 Premier, but it is designed for residents who generally only eat one or two meals per day. The same carry-over privilege with 19 Premier and 14 Premier also applies to 11 Premier.
This is our most basic plan for students who are not on campus during weekends or for those who eat only one or two meals a day. As with the 19 Regular and 14 Regular, meals that are not eaten during the week cannot be accumulated or saved. 11 Regular allows only one entry per designated meal period.
The Bruin Meal Plan
The Bruin Meal Plan is for students living off-campus. Due to ongoing staffing shortages, we are not able to offer the Bruin Meal Plan for spring quarter 2023. We will continue to re-assess and update if it becomes available.
