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 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.  

 New for 2019, resident students have the option to select from any of the five meal plans. A description for each meal plan is included below and may be used as a guide when selecting a plan based off of an individuals eating habits.   

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 Sports Center, and the UPMC Events Center. The addition of the UPMC Events Center is new for fall 2019 and the option to use Dining Plan dollars is sure to be a pleasing compliment to the sporting events and shows taking place in the new 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 using Financial Aid: If you would like to use your remaining financial aid for a commuter meal plan, 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.

COMMUTER Students not using Financial Aid:  Please click here to select any plan, and to submit payment on-line.

Dining plan changes for the Fall 2019 semester can be made prior to Friday, August 30, 2019 at 5:00 pm.

Reminder: All dining plans are non-refundable. Any remaining meal plan balance will expire at the end of each semester. End of the semester bulk-buy is no longer offered. In an effort to provide the most flexibility, we have opened up all meal plan options to give the students the best choice for their specific appetite. 

NEW FOR FALL 2019:  Dining Plans are accepted at the UPMC Events Center concession outlets for food and regular beverage.  The student must have a ticket to the game/event to gain entrance.
