For Commuters

Enjoy the convenience and value that comes with one of the many meal plans designed especially for commuter students. A quick pass of your RU Express ID card at any of our wonderful locations and you are on your way. The following meal plans give you access to our all you care to eat facility: Dalton Dining Center. You can also visit the Terrace Shops Food Court, Hurlburt Student Center and the New River Grille House at Muse Hall.

RU Express 
The RU Express Account is different from your standard meal plan in that it can be used anywhere on campus AND at certain locations off campus. An initail deposit of $25 is all you need to establish an RU Express Account on your student ID card. The RU Express Account also remains active as long as there is a balance available, any funds left at the end of the semester WILL transfer to the next semester.
