Peer Advisors

Welcome to the Nutrition Advising Center! We provide academic advising to students interested in pursuing a nutrition major or minor and can review course requirements, develop academic plans, and more. The center is located in 3202 Meyer Hall and open Monday through Friday, 9am-4pm. Please be aware that the center is closed during university holidays.

Advising services are provided by two undergraduate Staff Advisors and a team of Peer Advisors. Students are welcome to visit us during our center hours to speak with a Peer Advisor. Staff Advisors are available by appointment only.

Current UC Davis nutrition majors can make remote and in-person appointments with a Staff Advisor or Peer Advisor using the Appointment System. Students in other majors who are interested in pursuing a major or minor in our department should email the advising center ( to speak with an advisor.

NOTE: A face mask is highly recommended when meeting with an advisor in person.
