The University of the Pacific's dining mission is straightforward. In cooperation with our food service provider, Bon Appetit, we strive to use fresh and authentic ingredients by utilizing food in its simplest and most natural form. Utilizing locally purchased and season products, our chefs work hard to make our food full of flavor and nutritious. Menus are created by the Executive Chef with an emphasis on meeting the tastes of our students, faculty, and staff.
Only the Marketplace and Calaveras Coffee located in the DeRosa University Center (DUC) will be open and available for the spring 2021 semester. All food options will be grab and go as there will be no in-house seating. Groceries may also be purchased to be used in apartment kitchens.
Items from the Grove such as toiletries, over the counter medicines, snacks, ice cream, and grocery items have also been moved to the Marketplace for the convenience of our residents.
All residents who are approved to live on campus will be assigned to our apartment communities so that they may have kitchens available to meet their needs.
