Slug Club

Slug Club cards (available for purchase at dining halls) make dining easy and affordable — only $9.50 per meal* ($8.50 per meal during the sale periods at the beginning of each quarter). A great option for faculty, staff, and commuter students. Enjoy fresh, local, and organic food at all five dining halls. UCSC dining halls offer convenient, buffet-style, all you care to enjoy selections with great variety. Vegan and vegetarian options are available.

*Meals (including Slug Club meals) purchased by non-students are taxable.

Meals can be used through June 16, 2019

How the Slug Club card works:

  • Purchase a Slug Club meal card at any open dining hall.
  • Slug Club meal cards can be purchased with cash, checks, credit cards, or Flexi Dollars.
  • Meals purchased by non-students are taxable.
  • Meals added to a Slug Club card during non-sale periods will cost the regular Slug Club price of $9.50 per meal. Special sale periods happen at the beginning of each quarter.
  • Choose the number of meals that’s right for you—cards are pre-loaded with increments of five meals.
  • Running low? Add increments of five meals to your card anytime.
  • Slug Club meals can only be used in UCSC dining halls.

  • Meals are non-refundable and expire at the end of the academic year in which they are purchased. Meals can be used until June 16, 2019.
  • Treat your Slug Club card like cash - UC Santa Cruz Dining is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged cards.

*Charging tax at the UC operated dining locations: 
The sale of meals and food products are exempt from tax when sold or furnished to students by a public or private school. Carbonated drinks and alcoholic beverages are taxable except when sold as part of an exempt meal. This exemption on meals, etc. does not extend to faculty, university staff, or visitors when on campus.
