Fall 2020 Dining Operations

Pace, along with its Dining Partner, Chartwells will implement appropriate policies, in accordance with Federal, State, and Local regulations, using industry best practices to keep the University community and the Chartwells associates healthy.

All staff, faculty, and students visiting a dining cafe on campus will be required to wear a face covering, even if picking-up food for takeout. Each dining café will reduce capacity by 50% or more, with limited in-house seating.  Seating will not be available for patrons not actively dining, or when the café is closed for meals.  Mobile ordering and pickup stations will be available, with the use of contactless payment where possible.

Diners are encouraged to wash or sanitize hands prior to dining or retrieving food orders, and to only touch items in the café you will be picking up and taking with you. The following guidelines will be practiced in each dining hall:

  • Full service model only, with the elimination of self-service stations 
  • Cafe tables to be separated to accommodate 6 ft. distances between diners as well as to allow for ADA access
  • Stations will be set up in the café to allow for safe flow of guests in the café
  • Sanitation of all station counters and common areas every 30 minutes
  • New service hours will be in place to allow for appropriate sanitation of service area between meal offerings
  • Floor decals to assist in social distancing for station lines
  • Provide hand sanitizer for customer use throughout food service area
  • Plexi Glass to be installed at cashier stations to protect cashiers and guests
  • Individually wrapped cutlery kits to be supplied
  • PC condiments only to be supplied
  • Bakery items to be individually wrapped with a toaster available at the grill station
  • Bottled beverage only, no fountain beverage

The University will open its main dining halls in NYC, Pleasantville and The Law School, along with the NYC and Pleasantville Starbucks, the NYC Market and Miller kiosk.  The faculty dining room on the New York City campus will be closed for the fall 2020 and spring 2021 semester.  The hours of operation for each dining hall will be modified with new hours posted in early August.

Catering Model

When the University resumes operations in the fall, the catering model will be altered to ensure safety is maintained in accordance with Pace standards and local health regulations.  Catering options may include drop-off contactless catering and full service only models.  Please return to the website for specific a revised catering program prior to the fall semester

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 and transferring students. Graduating students need to spend all the funds by the end of the semester, or the funds will be forfeited. ALL MEAL PLANS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-TRANSFERRABLE.

View your Meal Plan Balances!

Students can log-in with their Pace Portal log-in and see their remaining meal plan dollars (dining, flex, voluntary flex, bonus, scholarship and DAWG Dollars/campus account) from any computer. Students can also select account transactions which allow you to see all purchases made with meal plan dollars. We hope this will make dining on campus and budgeting much easier.

Optional Voluntary Funds

Pace also offers an array of meal plans and meal plan options designed to suit each Pace student. Whether you are an incoming freshman or a full-time commuter, we have a meal plan perfect for you. If you do not have a meal plan, or if you would like to add additional funds to your meal plan, you can do so by filling out the Optional Voluntary Funds Form, by visiting the Office of Student Assistance or you can add funds online via credit card or check. Flex Dollars/Voluntary Flex Dollars can be used on campus or off campus at the various establishments that accept our Flex Dollars.

Meal Plan Options

Upgrade your meal plan when you register, during orientation or before the end of the second week of school. Meal plans cannot be upgraded beyond the end of the second week of the semester.
