Division of Student Life


Welcome to your new home at University of the Pacific.

It is now time to think about living on-campus and to make
decisions on where you want to live. In this brochure, you
will find information about each of the residential facilities
on-campus, all the dining options offered, and how to apply
for on-campus housing.

By living on-campus, you will be in the heart of the
University and have direct access to numerous academic,
athletic and social activities.

Recent national studies have shown that students who
live on-campus are more likely to graduate and are more
satisfied with their collegiate experience. In fact, Pacific has
found that students that live on campus have a higher GPA
and are more likely to stay in school than those off-campus.

Our office can be found on the second floor of the
McCaffrey Center. Parents or students can also contact the
Residential Life & Housing staff by phone at 209.946.2331
or through email at [email protected]

Residential Learning Communities

At Pacific we house students according to their class cohort to better address their developmental and social needs. We view all communities on
campus both residential halls and apartments as residential learning communities. These communities are created to be places and spaces where
students begin to explore the relationship between academic achievement and residential living. Each community offers a unique atmosphere, a
variety of amenities, and are designed to create opportunities for students to learn about themselves in a residential environment that enhances
their academic, developmental and social skills. Throughout the year, students learn about each other as they share experiences that coincide and
compliment what they are studying in the classroom. Please take a moment to review each community so that you can choose the right place for you.

Dining Options & Meal Plans

Pacific offers students a variety of dining options,
through different level meal plans and our multiple
dining options including the Marketplace (our
main dining hall), The Lair, the Calaveras Coffee
House, Davey’s Café, the Health Sciences Café,
the Grove and The E.A.T. Gourmet food truck.
Each option features a variety of menus including
such things as a salad bar, home-style soups,
freshly baked desserts, and beverages. There is a
wide selection of entrées and vegetables. At least
one vegetarian entrée is featured at each meal.
All students living on-campus are required to
participate in a meal plan. Instead of recording
meals per day or per year, you have the ability to
use your Dining Points to buy the food you want to
eat whenever you are hungry. The meal plan works
like a debit card, with all the funds loaded into
your account at the beginning of each semester.
The Dining Point amount placed on your account
each semester is determined by the meal plan you
choose. Each time you make a purchase, the amount
is deducted from your balance.
