We encourage campus visitors and University guests to join us for meals on campus. Types of payments accepted by visitors are Tiger Bucks, Cash, Credit (Visa/Mastercard/Discover), Apple Pay, and Google Pay. Our credit card processing allows chip, contactless, and swipe methods.
Tiger Bucks is a valuable and convenient debit account accessed through temporary Reload Cards for campus visitors.
Purchases can be made at various locations on-campus including Dining locations, Barnes & Noble at RIT, RIT hockey games, RIT concert tickets, and more.
For guests, Tiger Bucks funds can be added in-person at one of our Tiger Spend Reload Stations.
After funds are added, purchase amounts are deducted from the available balance.
