Flexi Dollars

Flexi Dollars are “food dollars” that are accessed with a student’s university ID card, and can be spent like cash at dining halls and all on-campus restaurants, cafés, coffee bars, and convenience stores. Flexi Dollars are also accepted at UCSC's Bay Tree Bookstore for books, school supplies, apparel, and more.
