CalArts offers meal plans that are designed to meet the needs of every student. You may choose a plan that includes 5, 10, 14 or 17 meals per week or a block meal plan. Along with your meal plan you can also purchase Commuter Flex Dollars to be used as you wish.

With Commuter Flex Dollars you can use your Student I.D. card like a bank debit card. Use flex dollars to purchase beverages, snacks, or even a full meal. Every time you make a purchase, the amount is subtracted from your Flex balance. When using flex dollars the sales tax is already covered.
