Dining Services

Welcome to the Chaminade Dining Program!

A variety of dining options and locations are available on the Chaminade campus. We also offer meal plans for on-campus and off-campus residents, as well as commuting students.

Please visit the Chaminade University Campus Dish website for additional information.

Commuter Students Meal Plans

Living off-campus doesn’t mean you have to hassle with shopping, cooking and cleaning after lunch. With a block meal plan you have value, variety and convenience. It’s flexible and works right with your schedule. An off-campus student has the option to purchase a block of meals to eat at the Silversword Cafe during breakfast, lunch, or dinner; block meal plans also come with Debit Dollars to spend at both the Courtyard P.O.D. Market and the Silversword Cafe.

  • 55 block meals at lunch for the academic year
  • $70 savings (for buying in bulk)
  • $20 debit dollars

Meal Plans

Food services are available for students living in campus housing. Residents of Hale Lokelani, Hale Pohaku and Kieffer Hall are required to purchase a meal plan. This is part of the contract as a condition of residing in these halls. Since the rooms do not have kitchens, no personal cooking is allowed in residence halls for safety and sanitation reasons. Students in these residence halls may choose from these plans: Hula (A), Mahalo (B) or Aloha (C). If no meal plan is chosen, students will automatically be placed on the Hula (A) meal plan for the semester.

Students living in our apartment complexes Waialae and Date Street may choose to sign up for any of the meal plans listed below, however, they are not required to. For apartment residents who would like the flexibility and ease of having some of their meals prepared for them, Plan D has been specially designed for them.

  • 10 meals per week
  • $150 declining balance dollars
