Meal plans are a fun, flexible and affordable way to dine on campus with your friends. The meal plans follow the all-you-care-to-eat service of ourtwo resident dining locations, Hale Aloha Café and Gateway Cafe, plus have the flexibility to use at many locations on campus with a retail value. The plans combine a set number of meal swipes per week with a pre-determined amount of retail points. Retail points (like cash on your dining card) may be used to purchase food at 9 locations across campus, making finding a place to eat easy.
The meal plans have a specified number of meals each week which reset every Saturday night at midnight. Unused meals will expire when the plan resets. Meal plan points expire at the end of spring semester. Any points purchased in addition to the meal plan will not expire.
When using meal swipes at our retail dining locations, like Campus Center Dining (food court), Taco Bell or Ba-le, each meal swipe has a value of $5.00. Refunds and credits cannot be given for purchases under $5.00. However, students can use a combination of meal swipes, points and cash to pay for their purchases. For example, if a student buys lunch at the Campus Center and the cost is $5.50, they may use one meal swipe and 50 cents in points or cash. Mulitple meals can be used to purchase a meal at our retail dining locations. One meal can be used each meal period at Hale Aloha and Gateway Cafes.
A person who purchases plan B can use up to 14 meals at any meal period throughout the week at our resident dining locations. They can also choose to use their meals at one of our retail locations. Meals used at our retail dining locations will have a value of $5.00. Anything above $5.00 can be paid for with the points that come with a meal plan or with cash. On Saturday after dinner, any meals not used will expire. Sunday will begin with a new set of 14 meals.
