Operational Changes to Dining Services in Response to COVID-19

UCSC Dining is following all CDC guidelines, and all state and local public health requirements and recommendations. Our staff members continue to be proactive in promoting the highest levels of sanitation in high traffic and public areas.

Customer Guidelines

Know Before You GoWhen You ArriveDuring Your Visit

Know Before You Go

  • Face coverings are strongly recommended when you're not at a table eating.
  • If you receive a positive COVID test result or have symptoms of illness, have a friend pick up a Buddy Meal for you. Do your best to isolate yourself immediately. Follow this list of instructions provided by the Student Health Center.
  • UCSC Dining locations accept Slug Points, Flexi Dollars, and credit/debit cards. Sorry no cash or checks accepted.

When You Arrive

  • Have your payment method ready before you reach the cashier.
    • Cards swipe in faster than the GET app, so if you have a card, use it! This includes Student ID cards, credit/debit cards, and other meal plan cards.
    • If you don't have your Student ID card, use the Scan Card function on the GET app. DO NOT screenshot your GET app barcode, as the GET system refreshes every 30 seconds, so GET app screenshots will not work.
  • Use the hand sanitizer station when you arrive at a dining facility. 
  • Wash your hands before and after eating.

During Your Visit

  • If you request a to-go meal, you will be provided a to-go container that you can fill and take with you to enjoy outside the dining hall.
  • If you are dining in and you want more to eat or drink, put your used dishes on the dish return, then grab a clean plate, bowl, or cup.
  • Follow the guidance on the signs posted throughout the facility.
