University Dining Services
The University Dining Hall has a variety of daily meal options with breakfast, lunch, and dinner offered Monday-Friday, and brunch and dinner offered on the weekends.
Our featured rotating menu includes all-you-care-to-eat main entrees, a dedicated vegan station, grilled to order burgers, build-your-own deli sandwich bar, soup station, baked potato and pasta bar, an extensive fresh seasonal salad bar, bakery and dessert items, and a variety of vegetarian and vegan selections.
Each meal plan allows you a set number of meals. Every time you swipe your ID card, a meal (or dollar amount) is deducted from the balance until all meals have been used.
A meal plan can be purchased and added to at any time during the semester. All meals must be used by the end of the semester, as they do not carry over to the next semester. Any unused meals are non-refundable. Flex cash can be carried over from the fall semester to the spring semester only if the resident student continues to live in Fresno State Student Housing. Any unused flex cash at the end of the spring semester, or when the student moves out of Student Housing, is non-refundable.
Call 559.278.3904 or stop by the University Dining Services Admin Office, on the lower level of the University Dining Hall, to sign up or to adjust your plan.
