Dine with a Professor Program


Due to COVID-19 and UC San Diego's enhanced safety requirements for all individuals on UC San Diego campuses this program has been placed on hiatus until further notice.

The Dine with a Professor program allows undergraduate students to dine with one of their esteemed faculty members for free. The program fosters informal, out-of-classroom interactions between you and your professors. It also gives you the opportunity to experience a variety of dining atmospheres such as UCSD Faculty ClubZanzibar @ the Loft, The Bistro, Pines, Roots, OceanView, Cafe Ventanas, Canyon Vista, Club Med, Pinpoint Cafe, Carolines Seaside or Sixty-Four North. All dining options with the exception of the Faculty Club have a $25 limit for the total of both yours and your professors' meals.
