Each residence has access to a kitchen or kitchenette and you are welcome to fix your own meals.  There are a number of restaurants around the ranch and at our properties that you are welcome to dine at by just paying as you go.

The best value that Semester by the Sea has going is our unlimited meal plan.  For $850 per month, you are welcome to eat three meals a day at any of our restaurants including Malibu Cafe, Calamigos Resort Breakfast Buffet, Leo's Lobby Bar, and the Calamigos Beach Club.  All you can eat breakfast is from 7AM to 11AM at the resort.  Lunch and dinner is available at the other 3 locations and you can order ANYTHING on the menu.    If you are going to be on campus, you can run just a mile away to the Beach Club or order a lunch to go.  Lunch and dinner include one entree or appetizer and choice of soft drink, coffee, or tea.  Gratuity is included, but dessert and alcoholic drinks are not allowed.  You are not allowed to save / store up meals or allow others to use your meals.  Some meals are quite large like our salads and you are welcome to share them with a friend or others can join you and order at menu prices.  

With meals ranging from $20 to $48, you can order that steak and save 80%!  You never have to worry about meals while you are living with us.  Meal plans are only available for purchase by the semester, and are comparable with the higher Pepperdine meal plans.

Meal Plans are open the weekend before school starts through Graduation weekend.  Meal Plans are closed for Christmas Break or if you are staying over, we can add on a Christmas Meal Plan for an additional $750.
