University of the Pacific Dining Services: Meal Plans

The University of the Pacific offers five different levels of meal plans to students living on-campus. They are Platinum, Gold, Silver, Copper, and Bronze. Listed below are the dining point amounts for each meal plan level. Please note that these amounts are for the dining points you will receive, and not the cost of the meal plan. For more information on the cost of the meal plans, please refer to our rates.

Room and meal plan rates are charged as a combined fee by the semester/term and are due as billed by the Office of Student Accounts. There are two semesters for general university (fall and spring) and three semesters for professional Pharmacy and Health Sciences students (fall, spring, summer). Rates are subject to change. Residents in First Year and Second Year communities must participate in at least a Silver Meal Plan each semester/term. Upper Division residents have a choice of the Copper or Bronze plan but must participate in at least a Bronze Meal Plan each semester/term. Students residing in the fraternities and sororities are required to participate in either a university or fraternity/sorority meal plan each semester/term. For those on a fraternity/sorority meal plan that do not offer meals on the weekends, the University encourages these students to purchase a supplemental copper or bronze level meal plan from the University.  Unused dining points are forfeited at the end of each academic year and are nontransferable. Students may transfer up to 300 dining points from the fall to spring terms (fall to spring and spring to summer pharmacy terms). Students who wish to decrease their meal plan, must do so prior to the beginning of the semester/term. No decreases will be allowed once the semester/term has begun. You can increase your meal plan at anytime by submitting a form in the Residential Life & Housing office.  For more information, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.
