Student Meal Plans

Commuter students have the option to purchase a Block or Meals per Week meal plan based on dining preferences.

If you would like to purchase a Block or Meals per Week plan and have it charged to your HPU student account, please contact Housing and Residence Life at housing@hpu.edu or 808-544-1436.

If you would like to purchase a Block plan now with debit/credit, please continue to make your selection through this website.

How does the meal plan work?
The meal plan consists of Meals and Flex Dollars.  Based on your dining preferences, you may decide to purchase a block of meals or select the Flex Dollars only option.

Meals:  Use your discounted meals at Pier Nine by Sam Choy at Aloha Tower Marketplace for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  Enjoy a restaurant experience having the option to create your own salad or panini sandwich for a lighter meal or delight yourself with featured special meals from our local partner, Chef Sam Choy.  Menus change daily so there is always a new option to try! Sam Choy is a James Beard Award winning chef, restaurateur, author and television personality.  Meals can be used at both Pier Nine by Sam Choy and Hawai'i Loa Dining Commons at the Hawai'i Loa campus.

Flex Dollars: Flex Dollars are like a gift card for food on campus.  They are attached to your ID card and are used just like a debit card.  Pier Nine by Sam Choy will offer additional solutions on-the-go like Grab & Go Salads and Sandwiches, Fruit Cups and Snacks.  If you are at the Hawai'i Loa Dining Commons, you will use your Flex Dollars for any meal period.

Please Note: Although any commuter student can purchase a Block plan or Flex Dollars, the Block plan options are more suitable for dining at Pier Nine by Sam Choy.  The Flex Dollars option is more suitable for students dining at the Hawai'i Loa campus.

After you select your meal plan, please allow one business day for the meal plan to be activated on your HPU ID card.  Once activated, you will use your HPU ID as the form of payment.

The Meals and Flex Dollars on the meal plan are active for both the Fall and Spring semesters.  All  Meals and Flex Dollars must be used by the end of the Spring semester.  Any unused Meals or Flex Dollars will be forfeited at the conclusion of the Spring 2020 semester.
