Meal Plan Information  

This year with COVID-19, the following modifications have been made to Dining Services.  Food selections for meals will be selected via Transact Mobile Ordering app (search for Rutgers University-Newark and login with your netID/password) and include a choice of hot entrees (including vegan/vegetarian), grill items, salads, sandwiches, fruit, dessert and beverages.  Meals will be picked up in “to go” containers from the Robeson Cafe in the Paul Robeson Campus Center.   Both Starbucks locations orders will be accepted via the StarbucksTM mobile app as well as in person.  The On the RUN convenience store and 1Park Bistro will also be open.  Meals will be provided in disposable, compostable and recyclable containers, following current COVID safety guidelines.  Additionally, a registered dietitian is available for programming and scheduled consultations.   

All students may change meal plans through September 10, 2021 for fall semester. As a reminder, meal plans automatically roll over from fall to spring semester. Meal plans may be updated for spring 2022. Students have until January 28, 2022 to change or cancel a meal plan for spring 2022 (unless you are a first year undergraduate resident student for spring 2022). Meal plans can be added at any time.
