Meal Plan Information

Meal Plans

If you are living in a residence hall, you will be enrolled in a quarter-based meal plan of $1,385, also known as the standard plan. This plan covers purchases in the Dining Commons and The Grind, PUC’s beverage bar and mini market in the Campus Center by using your Student ID card. The standard meal plan offers students approximately 10 meals a week and a few beverages. Actual usage will vary depending upon eating behaviors of students.

For more flexibility, you may add funds to your meal plan in increments of $100 by contacting Student Finance at Increasing your meal plan allows you to continue using your ID Card at both dining locations.

Meal Plan Adjustments Requests

Meal Plan Reduction Request

Standard meal plans are only reduced in unique cases. Your request must be based on either medical needs or dietary/cultural considerations. Please note, should a meal plan reduction be granted, it will not release you of any other obligations as agreed to in the housing contract. If you have a documented food allergy, you may request a meal plan adjustment from the Student & Spiritual Life Office only after consulting with the General Manager of Bon Appetit. For more information on the meal plan adjustment process, contact the Student & Spiritual Life office at

All meal plan adjustment requests MUST be submitted by the second Friday of each quarter during the academic year. Meal plan adjustment requests for the quarter will not be considered after the second Friday of the quarter.

When a student moves out of the residence hall partway through the quarter, a prorated meal plan charge is calculated based on the number of days spent in the residence hall.

Fund Carryovers

Up to $100 of unused funds will carry over from Fall and Winter quarters. These funds will automatically be added to your Winter or Spring meal plan funds. There is no carryover from Spring quarter

Commuter and Summer Plans

The Commuter plan, which is month-based, is available to residents of Brookside Park, Court Place, and community students. Enrollment is automatic. On this plan, you accumulate charges on your account (via the student ID card) and actual usage is charged at the end of each month. All meal charges must be paid by the end of the next billing cycle. This plan is not available to students who live in the residence halls during the academic year.

During the Summer, any student may activate a Commuter Plan to make charges to their student account by working with their Financial Advisor.
