Customer Guidelines
Join us for in-person dining this summer! Use the GET app over the summer to check your Slug Points balance, add Flexi$ to your account, and gain entry to the dining hall with our contactless scanner and the GET app’s Scan Card feature (if you have your UCSC student ID card, use it to swipe in—it's faster). All required COVID-19 operating guidelines will be followed. This is a dynamic situation, and policies are subject to change. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to serving you!
