Bobcat Meal Plans provide exceptional value to staff, faculty and students living by extending UC Merced Dining Services’ top-notch customer service and high-quality, diverse and nutritious meals to those living off campus. 


Bobcat Meal Plans

Meal Plan Name





Bobcat 25



Pavilion Dining Center


Bobcat 100



Pavilion Dining Center



Bobcat 25 allows 25 entries into UC Merced’s all-you-care-to-eat facilities, and Bobcat 100 allows 100 entries into a UC Merced all-you-care-to-eat facility at significantly discounted rates. Each entry allows a guest to select a full offering from Pavilion Dining Center's delicious menu for that meal time. Each non-residential meal plan expires one calendar year from the purchase date or after the final meal swipe is used.

Meal plans are loaded directly onto a plan holder’s CatCard. The plans provide unprecedented savings and convenience to our non-residential community. Without a meal plan, entry for a breakfast at a UC Merced dining center costs $10.95, entry for a lunch costs $11.95 and entry for a dinner costs $12.95.

Bobcat Meal Plans also allow plan holders to provide meals to guests. Just swipe your CatCard once for you and once for each guest, and your entire group will be able to enjoy a delicious meal with UC Merced Dining Services.
