Berkeley Dining’s services are tailored for our core campus customers, however, our facilities are open to the public.

We welcome you into any of our locations. Below is some helpful information for campus visitors

Meal Vouchers

If you’re interested in visiting our all-you-care-to-eat dining commons, apply for visitor meal vouchers. Please note visitor meal vouchers for large groups (over 100 guests) can be accommodated only Monday through Friday from 11 a.m.—Noon and 1 p.m.—2 pm.

For questions, please contact us at 510.643.8323 or


Anyone with a meal plan may use flex dollars for guests they invite (including children) to the dining commons. This is an even greater value considering meals in the dining commons are all-you-care-to-eat.

Here is the cost of a guest meal when using flex dollars versus cash/Cal 1 Card debit.

Meal Service Cash / Cal 1 Card Debit
Breakfast $10
Lunch / Brunch $13
Dinner $14
Children (ages 5 to 11) $10.50
Children under age 5 Free

Anyone who wishes to eat in the dining commons may do so if they pay in cash; they also may bring children and pay the children’s rates. You do not need a meal plan or a Cal 1 Card.
