Dining Plan Options   




Just as today's Residence Halls are a far cry from old-style dormitories, UCR's Residential Restaurants are a world apart from conventional college cafeterias. The restaurants at Aberdeen-Inverness and Lothian Residence Halls are designed to create a sense of community comfortable social hubs focused around food, with high-speed wireless Internet and an all-you-care-to-eat format. Our selection of dining plans is designed to stand up to the rigors of your academic schedule. All dining plans are supplemented with Dining Dollars, which allow you to purchase items at any Dining Services-operated convenience store or dining location on campus.

Choosing a Dining Plan

  • Residential Restaurant meals reset each quarter. Unused meals do not roll over to the next quarter.
  • A total of 19 meals are offered each week in our Residential Restaurants located in the Residence Halls. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily, Monday-Friday. Brunch and dinner are served on weekends.
  • There are 11 weeks in an academic quarter (10 class session weeks 1 Finals Week) at UCR. When selecting a Dining Plan, students may find it useful to divide the number of meals offered per quarter by 11 to determine approximately how many meals they could eat in a week at a Residential Restaurant.
  • Students typically use Dining Dollars to eat in on-campus restaurants or markets (C-Stores)  when they have busy class schedules and cannot make it back to a Residential Restaurant. However, Dining Dollars can also be used in the Residential Restaurants if a student depletes the quarterly allotment of Residential Restaurant meals in any quarter.
