Dining on campus isn’t one size fits all. Our meal plans were designed with you in mind. If you are looking to enjoy a meal with friends or just a snack on the go – we’ve got a plan to fit every appetite.

On-campus residents are required to have a meal plan. Students who reside off-campus may opt-in to a weekly meal plan or block meal plan. Questions? Contact Housing and Residence Life  at housing@hpu.edu or call 808-544-0277.

Don’t worry - simplicity and convenience are all within reach. Once you have a meal plan, your HPU ID works like a debit card. Just swipe your card and the meals and points are deducted from your meal plan account.

  • All plans also include flex dollars which are used at Pier Nine by Sam Choy - for extra meals or guests, and $100 in Sharks Bucks (used at approved vendors, including Pier Nine by Sam Choy) each semester. 
    • Flex dollars associated with mandatory plans expire after the last day of the Spring academic semester. 
    • Sharks Bucks associated with mandatory plans expire on Dec. 31 for Fall semester, and May 31 for Spring semester.
