Life At RIT
With over 20 campus locations, RIT Dining provides options to meet a variety of dining experiences: full-service dining halls for sit-down meals; quick service locations for grab-and-go; coffee shops with baked goods; full service concessions at entertainment venues; and markets and convenience stores for snacks, produce, everyday foods, and more. Meal plans offer flexibility so that students can utilize all of these options under one plan.
While choosing a plan, talk with your student about how meals will fit in with their course schedule. For example, if your student has block of classes and will not be able to make it to Gracie's for lunch most days, a plan with higher Dining Dollars will allow them to grab lunch near their classrooms. If your student plans to eat breakfast in their room each morning, the Tiger 19 plan budgets too many meals at Gracie’s and is probably not the right choice for them. Meal plans are renewed each semester, so remind your student to pay attention to the new class schedule while considering whether to keep the same plan or opt for a new one.
