Whether you’re looking for a cheeseburger, some Mexican or Asian food, pizza, or vegetarian or gluten-free meals, UC Merced Dining Services is here to serve you.
With access to the San Joaquin Valley region’s bountiful produce, Dining Services provides high-quality, great tasting cuisine that suits a host of culinary tastes, appetites and dietary needs.
Every day, diners have many choices of breakfast items, baked goods, soups, entrees, fresh vegetable selections, a variety of fruits, a salad bar and more. Looking for something on the go? Look no further than an assortment of pre-made deli sandwiches and wraps.
Everyone on campus can also participate in a reusable-container program that reduces packaging waste and helps the campus stay green. Ask about an OZZI container when you want to take your meal to go. Meal plans and OZZI containers are easily managed via CatCard.
On-campus residents can enjoy their meals at the Yablokoff-Wallace Dining Center with the rest of the campus community, or find a quiet spot outdoors for a picnic. Dining Services also operates the Lantern Café in the Leo and Dottie Kolligian Library and the Diesel Dogs food cart. Local restaurants also have food carts on campus every weekday, offering tastes of Thailand, Mexico and more.
