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 resident students can select the Revolutionary, Patriot, Jefferson or Liberty 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 6 dining locations which include, PNC Colonial Cafe, Romo's Cafe, Hale Center Cafe, Wheatley Cafe, Yorktown Cafe, and the Ice House Bistro at the RMU Island Sport 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dining plan changes for the Fall 2018 semester will be accepted on or before August 31, 2018 at 5:00 pm.
All dining plans are non-refundable and any unspent meal plan balance will expire at the end of each semester.
The Revolutionary Plan is designed for a student that spends the majority of time on campus. This plan is structured so that you can have larger meals with spending money for snacks. This plan allows for ~$203.00/week.
The Patriot Plan is designed for an average on campus student that eats most of their meals on campus and has a few snacks from time to time. This plan allows for ~ $145/week.
The Jefferson Plan is designed for the flexible student that eats some meals and snacks on campus. This plan allows for ~ $131/week.
The Liberty Plan is designed for the light eater or the student who routinely goes off campus on the weekends. This plan allows for ~$115/week.
This plan is only open to commuter student and students living in university apartments that may prepare many meals in their residence and allows for the purchase of snacks and on campus convenience store items. Apartment residence can choose any meal plan except commuter. This plan allows for ~$89/week.
This plan is available to our non-residential commuter students which allows for meals and snacks during the school while on campus. This plan allows for ~$50/week.
*Meal plans include a Dining Services Fee of $350.00 per semester, which covers maintenance, ongoing enhancements, and operating costs associated with providing dining services. See spendable amount available to students after the admin fee is assessed.

Colonial Cash can also be used to purchase meals on campus and is a safe and convenient alternative to carrying cash or credit cards, and is available to all university students, faculty and staff. Colonial Cash can be loaded onto your Freedom Card (student I.D. card) and used for purchases both on campus and at participating off-campus locations in Moon Township.
