Meal Plans

Meal Plans for Student Housing Residents

Every resident living in UC Davis residence halls receives a meal plan as part of their contract. Every resident living in UC Davis Student Housing Apartments (SHA) has the option to purchase a dining plan as part of their contract. Residents may choose a plan that best fits their eating preferences or needs.

Residence hall and SHA meal plans include:

  1. Access to the dining commons
  2. Aggie Cash for retail food purchases

Meal Plans


The residence hall and SHA rates ("room and board") include the fees for the dining plans; dining plan fees are not itemized separately.
