Important Information

Yes. There will be a variety of balanced food options to choose from, making it easy to customize each meal to meet your dietary preferences. For students requiring a specialized diet for medical needs, we will continue utilizing our same sophisticated program to provide individually prepared meals. Regardless of the style of eating (inside dining or take out) Dining Services will continue to provide medically appropriate meal offerings based on the dining hall menus.

Dining Services has developed full meal packages so you can use your meal swipes. You also have the ability to select from the daily menu and pay for individual menu items using your meal plan, RU Express accounts, or credit.

If you are paying with RU Express or Credit Card, you can order all your meals in one transaction and pay once at the end of your daily order.
