Campus Dining

New York City

The meal plans at Pace are Declining Balance Dollars that can be used at any of the on-campus dining locations. Funds are posted to the student account at the beginning of each semester and decline as each purchase is made. All dining plans are sales tax free.

All full-time resident and commuter undergraduate students at Pace University are required to have a meal plan. Resident graduate students are also required to have a meal plan. Any unspent meal plan funds will roll over from semester to semester as long as student is enrolled – with the Exception of graduating students.

Graduating students need to spend all the funds by the end of the semester, or the funds will be forfeited. Meal plan funds are non-refundable and non-transferable.

The current minimum $25 Flex Dollar-Meal Plan rate is included in most quoted meal plan figures. All rates are subject to change every academic year.

All students are welcome to select from any of the higher optional meal plans. Platinum through Bronze plans are based on a student eating approximately 15 - 21 meals per week on campus. The Blue plan is based on a student eating approximately 7 meals per week on campus.

Commuter Students

Commuters enrolled in 12 or more credits per semester are assigned the commuter meal plan.
