Commuter Meal Plan

The 2024-2025 Commuter Meal Plan

We are pleased to offer a meal plan for commuter students, faculty, or staff who wish to eat in the Residential Dining Halls.

The Commuter Meal Plan allows the student, faculty, or staff to have any 40 meals of their choice. Plan will then be effective 3 - 5 days later due to payment processing. The meal plan may be used anytime during the year and be repurchased as desired. This option allows more flexibility for students to purchase multiple meals within a meal period. The Commuter Meal Plan is non-transferable and may only be used by the applicant. Sharing this privilege with others will result in termination of the plan without a refund. A Commuter Meal Plan is valid until the participant's Campus ID expires or after one year of inactivity, and is redeemable only at Residential Dining Halls.

For the 2024-2025 academic year, each Commuter Meal Plan can be purchased for $402 effective June 1, 2024.

Please visit the Residential Dining Hall page for the most current times and dates that the meal plan may be used. 

Commuter Meal Plan participants are expected to adhere to the Residential Dining Guide rules and regulations.  Any violation of these rules will be grounds for immediate termination of the plan by Beach Shops without a refund of any unused fees.

Please note that processing time is 3 to 5 days excluding weekends (when your Commuter Meal Plan will become active after payment).  For expedited processing, you may purchase a Commuter Meal Plan in-person at the ID Card Services (immediate activation). To check on the status of a web purchase, please call us at the ID Card Office at (562) 985-7388.
