2024–2025 Meal Plans for NYC Students

All full-time undergraduate students and resident graduate students at Pace University are required to have a meal plan. Students can choose between plans that offer different combinations of meal exchange weekly swipes and a declining Dining Dollars balance that can be used at any of the on-campus dining locations. Meal plans begin on move-in day each fall and spring and conclude on the last day of scheduled finals.

All dining plans are sales tax free. Fall semester meal plan dollar balances will roll over and must be used by end of the spring semester. Meal plan balances are non-refundable and funds not used by the end of Spring semester will be forfeited. NOTE: for students enrolled prior to July 1, 2021, the meal plan balances will continue to roll over until graduating or leaving the University.

Students are automatically assigned a standard meal plan based on their academic standing and residence, with the option to upgrade to any meal plan above their designated standard plan. Plans and prices below are expressed per-semester.
