What is an Anteater Meal Plan?

An Anteater (Voluntary) Meal Plan unlocks delicious meals, coffee, snacks, and more, at over 30 locations across campus. Your Anteater Meal Plan includes Meal Swipes and FlexDine, conveniently loaded onto your UCI ID. No need to carry additional cards or cash!


Meal Swipes

Meal Swipes give you access to both of our all-you-care-to-eat dining halls, Brandywine and The Anteatery.



FlexDine may be used at any UCI Dining location. Visit our locations page for location information, including dining hall menus and hours of operation. FlexDine rolls over between quarters and expires at the end of the academic year.


Guest Meals

Each Housing Meal Plan comes with 10 guest meals to use for family and friends. Guest meals roll over each quarter until the end of the academic school year.
