Dining Costs

Studying, making friends and exploring California can make you very hungry. Luckily, University of the Pacific dining halls and other campus dining options serve delicious food from around the world.

Pacific offers a variety of dining options through different plans and facilities:

Each facility features a variety of menus, which include options such as salads, home-style soups, a wide selection of entrées and vegetables, freshly baked desserts and beverages. At least one vegetarian entrée is featured at each meal.

All students living on campus are required to participate in a meal plan.
Instead of having a limited number of meals per day or year, you have the ability to use Dining Points to buy food that you want to eat, whenever and wherever you are hungry. The Resident Dining Account works like a debit card, which you load with prepaid funds at the beginning of each semester.
