UC Davis Dining Services produces one of the nation’s finest collegiate residential-area dining programs. Dining Services operates three dining commons (DC) buildings, all of which are located within the residence hall areas.

Residence hall students receive a meal plan as part of the residence hall contract. Note: non-residence hall students, faculty, and staff may also purchase DC meal plans; students, staff, faculty and the general public may purchase individual meals at the dining commons.

UC Davis Dining Services also operates three on-campus convenience stores ("C-Stores"):the Junction in Segundo, Trudy’s in Tercero, and Crossroads in Cuarto. The C-Stores offer a variety of options and do not require a meal plan. Dining Services also operates a variety of locations on campus, outside of the Student Housing areas.
