Wellness and sustainability

Food on a plate

At CSUMB, we’re strong advocates of sustainability and the health and wellness of our campus community. You can see that commitment in the meals we serve in our day-to-day operations.

Meal plans

Dining is a complementary experience to attending classes at CSU Monterey Bay. Our plans are designed to provide the campus community access to the appropriate amount of meals to fit busy schedules and individual needs.
