Whether you're looking for a refreshing beverage, a quick bite to eat, or a complete meal, there are a number of eateries located at UC Davis to satisfy just about any craving.

UC Davis Dining Services provides some of the finest collegiate dining offerings in the country, with delicious, nutritious meals made from sustainable sources. While Dining Services makes sure campus restaurants, residential dining halls, coffee shops, markets, and food truck rodeos are available at UC Davis to everyone, it is not alone in that pursuit.

Dining Commons

There are four dining commons located across campus, one in each residence hall area (Segundo, Tercero, and Cuarto). While the DCs may be the primary location where residence hall residents eat, they are also open to the campus community and the public.

Opened in January 2020, Latitude is a unique eating experience to UC Davis. Unlike its three dining commons counterparts, this 500-seat eatery comes with a separate retail café and market, serving food to go, and four platforms, dividing its food offerings into regions: Latin American, Asian, European, and Indian, and Middle Eastern dining.

All dining commons accept meal plans and Aggie Cash.

Campus restaurants do accept Aggie cash, which for students, means this will be a part of meal plans.
