Order Ahead for Pick Up

Save time and order ahead from one of our cafes or coffee bars! We’ll have your food and drinks ready for you to pick up at your scheduled time. (Dining halls do not accept meal orders via GET. Instead, make your meal selections in-person at the dining hall.)

Order ahead frequently asked questions:

How long do I have to pick up my order?

Order must be picked up within 10 minutes of the assigned pick-up time. After that, the order must be discarded for food safety reasons, and you will need to place a new order. No refund will be provided

Do I need a face covering to pick up my meal?

Stay informed about current policies and guidelines by visiting our COVID-19 response page.

When will I be charged for my order?

You will be charged when you place the order (not when you pick up the order).

When can I pick up my order?

You can choose any pick-up time during normal business hours. The earliest pick-up time is 15 minutes after order time, but at peak times orders may take longer.

I placed an order, but when I went to the dining location, they had no record of it. Why?

Be on the lookout for an email from get-admin-group@ucsc.edu indicating that the transaction failed. This email will arrive in your inbox within about one minute if you are placing your order for pick up “ASAP”. If you place your orders well in advance, email notification of a transaction failure would arrive 15 minutes before your pick up time. Due to the software, order confirmation emails go out before the system knows whether the transaction has succeeded or failed.

What if I’m having other technical issues with the GET app?
Email get-admin-group@ucsc.edu.
