R'Blocks for commuters and staff/faculty


For Fall 2020, Residential Meal Swipes are accepted at the Glasgow Residential Restaurant and, if resident occupancy levels permit, the Culinary Chameleon food truck (dinner only).  

You may use as many Meal Swipes as you choose during each meal period at Glasgow (separated by a 30-minute "Cool Down" period), but take care to ensure you are not using too many too soon! You may only use one Meal Swipe during each meal period at the Culinary Chameleon (dinner only). We recommend using an overall average of 14 Meal Swipes per week under the Highlander 150 Plan. Meal Swipes DO NOT roll over to the following quarter.

Important: With the exception of the Quarterly allotment of Guest Passes (although guest passes are suspended for Fall 2020 and can instead be used by the Dining Plan holder as extra meal swipes), Meal Swipes are intended only for the individual holder of the Dining Plan. Students should not share their Meal Swipes with anyone. It is important that each student gets full value from their Dining Plan and is not pressured into giving away their swipes to others, be they friends or strangers. Students approached by someone they don't know asking for a Meal Swipe should notify their RSO. 

Dining Dollars are accepted at any open UCR Dining Venue and roll over quarter-to-quarter before expiring at the end of the Spring quarter. Additional Dining Dollars may be purchased separately. For purchases of $100 or more, you will receive a 10% bonus, and for purchases of $50 - $99, you will receive a 5% bonus.

*Available to Glen Mor residents only.
