The University of the Pacific offers five different levels of meal plans to students living on-campus (off-campus meal plans are also available: see Commuter Dining Plans). 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, winter, spring). Rates are subject to change. Students residing in residence halls must participate in at least a Silver Meal Plan each semester/term. Students residing in apartments 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 winter and winter to spring pharmacy terms). Students who wish to change their meal plan, must do so prior to the beginning of the semester/term. No changes will be allowed once the semester/term has begun.  For more information, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. In order to budget your dining points for each semester, please review the following spending grid to see what amount of dining points you should on a given date.
