Spring 2021 Changes

Updated 2/24/2021

RIT Dining is making changes and enhancements for the Spring 2021 semester while continuing to place an emphasis on cleaning, sanitation, and safety procedures. Spring 2021 changes include:

Online Ordering

When placing an order online, there are two choices for when an order can be picked up. Selecting "Later today" versus "As soon as possible" may display different dining locations.

  • Later today allows a customer to select a time later that day to schedule the pick up of their food. 
  • As soon as possible allows a customer to see locations that are accepting orders available for pick-up asap. Certain locations only allow later today orders.

New locations are now accepting online orders! Gracie's, Hissho Sushi, RITz Sports Zone, and Sol's Underground have been added to rit.edu/onDemand this semester.
