2019 - 2020 Dining Plan Rates and Information
Robert Morris University requires all resident students to purchase a dining plan since we believe that a sense of community and a commitment to healthy eating are both key to the success of our students.  

We have designed 6 dining plans to accommodate every student's needs.  Our dining plans are declining cash balance in which you can choose from a variety of plans with varying dollar amounts to suit your lifestyle and maximize flexibility.  Each plan is designed and priced to accommodate an estimated number of meals per week, but students are not limited to a certain number of meals.  

First-year residents students can select any plan. However, the Patriot Plan is recommended for the first semester as the best option to acclimate to campus life.

Dining Plan dollars can be used for all items available at our 7 dining and concession locations which include, PNC Colonial Cafe, Romo's Cafe, Hale Center Cafe, Wheatley Cafe, Yorktown Cafe, the Ice House Bistro at the RMU Island Sport Center, and the UPMC Events Center.

Dining plans can be selected from semester to semester by logging on to your housing contract through the Residence Life website.  If you have questions please email Residence Life at reslife@rmu.edu

COMMUTER Students:  Please submit the Fall 2019 commuter plan application and drop off at the Student Financial Services department (Lower level of the Revere Building) with payment.

Dining plan changes for the Fall 2019 semester will be accepted on or before Friday, August 30, 2019 at 5:00 pm.

All dining plans are non-refundable and any unspent meal plan balance will expire at the end of each semester. For returning students, end of the semester bulk-buy is no longer offered.
