Residential students will have a meal plan that will provide expanded service hours and unlimited access at Frary, Frank Dining Hall, as well as access to the Coop Fountain and Café 47. Menus have also been expanded to provide more vegan and vegetarian options, as well as choices that address allergy concerns. The Coop Fountain will be the site of the Late-Night Snack Program creating a central hub for student activity, Tuesdays through Thursdays.

If you have additional questions, please contact Jose Martinez, dining services General Manager at jose.martinez@pomona.edu.

Private Dining Rooms

The dining halls feature a number of private dining rooms (PDRs) that allow students, faculty and staff to convene groups of up to 20 (room capacities vary) during meal times for meetings. The Frank Dining Hall Blue Room can accommodate up to 99 guests with a minimum of 35 guests. All PDR reservations, including Frank Blue Room, may only be requested during normal dining hall meal periods and require a dining hall meal to be purchased either by a meal swipe.

Students may request the use of PDRs through Engage and faculty and staff may request the use of PDRs through the EMS Web App. Submission of a request does not guarantee approval.

College departments may also reserve the Frank Blue Room on Fridays and Saturdays through Pomona College Catering. Please note that Friday and Saturday events will incur an additional charge for housekeeping/utility.
