Dining

As part of the Q+ dining fees, students will have a catered dinner at Avenue every night. Dinner is served between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm and is a great time to connect with other students!

**NOTE: August 19 and August 28 are exceptions as dinner will be served on Dexter Lawn, due to power outage

Other than the prepaid evening dining period, Q+ students will be responsible for all of their meals. Plu$ Dollars ($150) will be available on your PolyCard and can be used to purchase meals at campus dining facilities as well as for buying groceries at the on campus markets. You can always add money to your Plu$ Dollars using your Cal Poly Portal.

Apartments in Poly Canyon Village will have kitchens that will allow students a place to prepare their own food. And of course, students are always welcome to leave campus to explore dining options in the community.

Summer hours often differ from the usual dining schedule and students may not have full access to campus dining options during the Q+ program. To stay up to date with the latest hours of campus dining, students are encouraged to download the Cal Poly Dining App onto their devices.
