Hawaii Loa Campus Dining Commons

Hawaii Loa Campus Dining Commons

All new students living in the Hawaii Loa Residential Community are required to purchase a meal plan, which is selected when a student applies for on-campus housing. When students choose either a 10-meal or 14-meal plan they are making a commitment to that meal plan type for the academic year and are billed at the same time housing charges are placed on student accounts. HLC Residents may use their meal plan at Pier Nine by Sam Choy (Aloha Tower Marketplace dining facility). Unused meals do not rollover to the following week and can not be "gifted" to others.



  • Meals expire at the end of each week (Sunday).
  • Flex dollars associated with mandatory plans expire after the last day of the Spring academic semester. 
  • Four guest meals are included per semester with each mandatory meal plan.
  • All you care to eat plan.
  • Food not allowed to be taken “to-go” unless meal not consumed on-site. Students who take food to go will need to purchase a reusable to-go container set for $12 after their initial meal plan swipe. Used containers can then be exchanged throughout the year for clean ones.
  • One weekly meal swipe per semester may be donated to the HPU Food Pantry.
  • Hawaii Loa Campus residents may also use their meal plan at Pier Nine By Sam Choy. 
  • Only individuals purchasing a meal at the door rate or items ($10 or more) in the Pier Nine retail store with a credit card or meal plan flex dollars are eligible for a parking validation sticker. 


  • All meal plans will include four guest passes per semester.
  • Guest meals can only be used with the student enrolled in the meal plan present. 
  • Guest meals expire at the end of the semester.
  • Meal swipes are not allowed to be transferred as guest meals. 



Dining hours, meal plan policies and applicable rules as well as the menu are available on the Dining Commons website
