Dining on campus isn’t one size fits all. Our meal plans were designed with you in mind. If you are looking to enjoy a meal with friends or just a snack on the go – we’ve got a plan to fit every appetite.

We’ve kept what’s most important to you in mind, building in the convenience, flexibility, quality, value and healthy options you deserve. Explore our meal plan options to learn more about what would be the best fit for you.

  • Why should I purchase a meal plan?
    Meal plans are convenient and save you money. You already know you're going to eat on campus- why not enjoy the convenience of a freshly cooked meal at the Dining Commons. Any CSUEB community member can purchase a meal plan. Whether you're a college student, staff, faculty, or vendor- this is where YOU study or work, and we're here to serve you.

  • Can I use my meal plan to purchase food at Subway, Starbucks, or any other campus location?
    Some meal plans come with Flex Dollars which can be used when visiting any national brand chain on campus. When making your purchase, just provide the cashier with your Bay Card and let them know that you would like to pay with Flex Dollars. Meals can be used at the Dining Commons.

  • When does my meal plan expire?
    Meal Plans are valid for the entire academic year of the year purchased and expire on the last operational day of the academic year in May. Please carefully assess how many meals you will need when making your purchase as those not used by the last day will expire and will not be subject to refund. Flex that is purchased separately will continually roll over until used. Flex associated with a meal plan will expire on the last day of the academic year.
Don’t worry - simplicity and convenience are all within reach. Once you have a meal plan, your student ID works like a debit card. Just swipe your card and the meals and points are deducted from your meal plan account.
