Frequently Asked Questions

Why can't I take food out of the Dining Room?

Because we are responsible for all foods served at our dining locations, we cannot allow you to take food from the facility because storing the food for too long or for any time at an improper temperature poses a health risk.

Why can't I use one of my meals to pay for a friend to eat at the Dining Room?

The meal plans are non-transferable and meant for your use only. This keeps meal plan prices lower for everyone.  You are welcome to use your Dining Dollars or SeaLion Dollars to purchase a meal for a friend, however meals from your meal plan are for your use only.

Do Dining Dollars carry over from one semester to the next?

The Dining Dollars you get with your meal plan do not carry over from one semester to the next since it is part of your meal plan. However, SeaLion Dollars that you add to your card do carry over from semester to semester until you are no longer enrolled at PLNU.  You can add SeaLion Dollars quickly and easily by visiting https://community.pointloma.edu.

Why can't I enter the Dining Room without my card, even if I know my ID number?

We have no way of verifying that the number is actually yours. If a mistake is made when the number is punched into the system it may take a meal off another student's meal plan or someone may use your ID number to get into the Dining Room.
