The space is open during all events on the Calendar tab, but there are also various meetings and open hours when the space is open for general use. Open hours vary based on volunteer capacity from quarter to quarter. We will do our best to keep current hours updated on this page. If it is past March, 2023, the information on this page may not be accurate.

Note: The Che Cafe also has a Community Fridge Project in conjunction with Mutual Aid at UCSD. The Community Fridge will be open whenever the space is.

Winter Hours (starting Jan 9, 2023): 12-4pm every day (also event hours)
If you are interested in helping with our open hours, please email info@checafe.org. We would love to hear from you!

The Community Fridge

We're dedicated to keeping the community fridge open - no points or enrollment necessary. Come drop off food (vegan items preferred) or take some of you need it- bathrooms, waterstation, wifi, outlets and AC. Instruments, chalkboard, craft supplies and books available as well!


Brave the construction zones and come hang out with us!

Meetings with an in-person component: General Meetings: Mondays 7pm-whenever
Our other subcollective meetings are virtual only. Please see the Join the Collective tab for a list of our subcollective meetings.

Other Events: The Calendar tab which displays our Instagram (@thechecafe) also has a list of all our upcoming shows and events.

If you are unsure if the space will be open at a particular time/date, you can always email info@checafe.org.
