Incoming exchange students who are placed in a university apartment can choose to have a meal plan. There are quite a few options for meal plans. More information about these plans can be found on the Dining Services web page.
When you arrive at Rutgers you will receive a digitized student ID card and your meal plan will be encoded into your card. You will swipe your ID card every time you go to the dining hall for a meal. There are five dining halls at Rutgers, and all of them will be available to you.
Students can also use their Rutgers ID cards as a debit card at participating locations. These include on-campus eateries, local restaurants, and shops. More information about this program can be found on the RU Express web page.
