Dining services are part of Housing and Residential Services at UCSB. Four dining commons are available to students: Carrillo, Ortega, De La Guerra, and Portola at UCSB's Storke Campus. If your student lives in a residence hall, he or she is required to sign up for a meal plan.
There are a variety of meal plans for students to choose from. Students can increase their meal plan at any time, but are only allowed to decrease their meal plan twice per year. More information is available at the Dining Services Web site .
Students living off-campus can also sign up for an off-campus meal plan. This plan is convenient for off-campus students who are not able to return home during meal times or between classes.
