Pepperdine Dining Services is proud to offer ten dining locations across campus. If you are on a meal plan or utilize Waves Cash, you are able to use your Student ID Card at any of our locations across campus. You can enjoy the comfort and convenience of dining on-campus up to nineteen hours a day.

We strive to bring you the most flavorful, local, ethnic and regional cuisine combined with warm guest service to make you feel at home. We are committed to providing you with the freshest produce available by supporting and buying from local farmers first. This practice allows us to cook up a wide variety of healthy options for you to enjoy, and it helps our local economy.

Let us shop, cook and do the dishes and you will have more time to study, get a little more rest, or hang out with friends. On campus dining allows more free time for you, with all of this in mind, purchasing a campus dining plan is a smart choice.
