Our Commitment to Quality

Your dining experience is more than great food. It is a community experience centered on culinary expertise, fresh ingredients, healthy options, and a shared sense of environmental and social responsibility. At CSUSB Dining Services we are proud to support local farmers, source organic and local produce, hormone-free milk, sustainable seafood and antibiotic-free meat whenever possible.

Our team is committed to creating outstanding food and an inviting atmosphere designed especially for you.

Flexibility and Convenience

Let our award winning chefs worry about shopping, cooking and cleaning up – saving you time and money – so you can focus on what matters most to you. 

Meal plans are open to all Cal State San Bernardino students and are mandatory for all freshmen living on campus. Each meal plan loads your Coyote One Card with the specific number of meals and flex dollars based on the plan that you choose. 

Being on a plan offers you a choice in dining options. Spend your dollars at our weekly All You Care to Eat dinners at the Commons or grab a bite with friends at the Blue Coyote Pub – you are in control - purchase exactly what you want at any of our dining services locations across campus. If you run out of dollars, don't worry! Purchase additional dining dollars online at anytime, click shop now!

On-Campus Residents (Freshman)

For the past several years, just one meal plan option was available for students, and all first year students were required to purchase a meal plan. Starting this fall, CSUSB is offering two new exciting meal plan options to choose from. All first-year students (freshmen) living on campus are still required to purchase a plan, but now have more options.

All first-year students (freshmen) in both Serrano Village and Arrowhead Village will need to choose one of the following meal plans for 2016-17: 

5 All-you- care-to-eat meals per week plus $700 flex dollars - $1,050.00/quarter
This plan loads you up with 5 all-you-care-to-eat meals per week PLUS $700 in tax-exempt  flex dollars. With this plan, you can focus on what matters most.

4 All-you- care-to-eat meals per week plus $750 flex dollars - $1,050.00/quarter
If you plan on staying busy this year, this is the perfect plan for you. With access to 4 all-you-care-to eat meals a week and $750 in flex dollars you’ll always have coffee to keep you going.

Residents that do not choose a meal plan by August 1, 2016 will automatically be enrolled in the 5 All-you- care-to- eat meals per week plus $700 flex dollars.  You will be able to make changes to your meal plan for the winter 2017 and spring 2017 quarters. 

All-You-Care-to-Eat meals will be hosted at The Commons from Sunday – Thursday at 5:00pm -7:30pm. Students will enjoy themed meals and an explosion of flavors as they expand  their social circles. 

Flex dollars are funds set up on your Coyote One Card that can be used like a debit card for purchases exclusively at any dining services location.

On-Campus Residents (Upper Year Students) 

We are also excited that our upper year residents living in University Village and Arrowhead Village can choose to participate in one of the following meal plans: 

Apartment plan 30 block plus $325 flex dollars - $500.00 per quarter

This plan will grant you access to 30 all-you-care-to-eat meals a quarter, about 3 a week*. This plan also comes with $325 in flex dollars - enough to get a couple lunches or coffee during the week.
*estimate based on a 10-week Quarter

Apartment plan 25 block plus $200 flex dollars - $375.00 per quarter

This plan will grant you access to 25 all-you-care-to-eat meals a quarter, about 2 a week* and gives you $200 in flex dollars - just enough to grab a few snacks and coffee during the week.
