Dining

Meeting Space availability for student groups varies during the academic year and summer months. As part of our mission, we exist to enhance the learning and living activities of our residents and use of these areas should reflect and reinforce this. Please see below for contact information related to specific areas.

Lawn Requests: Contact either the Hall Council Advisors or the Residence Halls Association during the academic year. The requesting group must also fill out a “Lawn Use Request Form” which they can acquire from the Residential Operations Services Center (805.893.3312 or email osc@housing.ucsb.edu)

Tabling outside of a Dining Commons: Contact the Residence Halls Association for a “Reserving Table Space” form. After the RHA President signs it, the form then needs to be taken to the Dining Commons for the General Manager to approve. Groups are not allowed to table inside the Dining Commons.

Apply online through our Student Employment website. Or take your current class schedule to the Dining Commons of your choice and speak with the Personnel Manager.

A meal voucher is valid for 24 hours and a new Access Card must be obtained from the University Center (UCen) during this time. Visit one of the designated front desks listed above for more details.
