Residential Meal Plan Information
All students residing in the residence halls participate in one of our Meal Plans unless they choose not to have one because they meet eligibility requirements. There are two types of meal plans, All Access Plan and Block/Declining Balance(DB) plans. Click here to view the four options offered. NOTE: There is not a separate winter term plan. The fall meal plan ends and the spring plan begins mid-January.
Block Meal Plans (Plans 1-3):
There are two parts to each meal plan: Block Meals and Declining Balance (DB).
Part 1: Meal Plan/Block Meal Allowance
No missed meals! Start the semester with a block - or specified number - of meals. One block is subtracted from your meal plan each time you participate in the all-you-care-to-eat meals offered at dinners and weekend brunches in the University Center. You may also chose to use a block for meal exchange menu items for breakfast and lunch.
What is the Meal Exchange Program? The Meal Exhange Program provides the flexibility to use a block meal for designated menu items both in the RFoC dining room and the Boxer Bistro for breakfast and lunch.
NOTE: Unused block meals do not transfer to the next semester.
Part 2: Meal Plan/Declining Balance (DB)
Pay as you go - DB works like a pre-paid debit card that lets you supplement your block meal allowance and can be used at all Pacific University Dining Services locations on campus. Your DB can be used for breakfast, lunch and snack items and the purchase amount is subtracted from the balance in your account.
All Access Plan (Plan 4):
The All Access Plan is designed for the student that prefers to eat many small meals or three large meals a day. This plan provides unlimited entries for all you care to eat dining in our newly refreshed dining room.
Meal Plan Change Period: There is an option to change the meal plan during the first two weeks of Fall and Spring Semesters. This is done by filling out a Meal Plan Change Form through the Housing Office.
All students residing in the traditional residence halls or in apartment style units WITHOUT a full kitchen are required to participate in meal plan 1, 2, 3 or 4.
