Meal Plans & Pricing
Currently, only meal plans or Claremont Cash is accepted during the Summer of 2023. Meal plans are available to students, staff, and faculty. Please view more about prices here.
Ultimate Meal Plan
This fall, Pomona College is rolling out a new unlimited meal plan for on-campus dining. All students living on campus, including students living at Oasis apartments, will be on this plan. The unlimited plan is expected to run throughout the academic year.
Residential students will have a meal plan that will provide expanded service hours and unlimited access at Frary, Frank Dining Halls, as well as access to a re-imagined 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 new site of the Late-Night Snack Program creating a central hub for student activity, Tuesdays through Thursday beginning Monday, September 7.
Expanding the hours of service at dining halls will create less crowding, and therefore the College will be able to respond to evolving Los Angeles County public health guidelines much faster and efficiently.
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 and Room is available during normal Frank Hall meal periods 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 or a sign in sheet.
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.
