College Night Celebrations

College Night Celebration

College Night celebrations are a tradition at UC Santa Cruz. These special events bring each college community together to enjoy lively entertainment, a special menu, and festive dinner in the company of friends.

  • The dining hall hosting the College Night will close 2–5 p.m. to prepare for the evening event.
  • College Night festivities will take place during dinner service, 5–8 p.m. (5–7 p.m. at Porter/Kresge Dining Hall)
  • Standard dining hall entry price is required; all students, faculty, and staff are welcome.
  • Dining halls that offer Late Night service will also be open after the College Night event. Check dining hall schedules for Late Night hours.
  • It is always a good idea to:
    • check the calendar for notifications, or
    • the hosting dining hall (for posted notices)
