All meal plans are provided by Hospitality Services and administered by USCard Services. Residents of USC Housing will automatically be enrolled in a mandatory meal plan based on their university housing location and class standing. Students have the option to upgrade to another meal plan online prior to the change deadline.

If you are not required to have a meal plan, you may purchase one.

Meal plans are effective from your housing contract move-in date (please see dates below) — or the date you purchase an optional meal plan — until the end of the term.

Meal plan dates for the 2024-2025 academic year are:

Summer 2024
