Dining Services

Dining Services at Rockhurst University strives to provide you the best possible on-campus dining experience — making sure it’s always convenient, affordable and delicious. If you’re living on campus, you can choose the meal plan and campus food that works best for your schedule: either a five-day or seven-day meal plan. If you’re a commuter and it’s more convenient to eat and grab food on campus, the same meal plans are available to you.

All meals are preloaded on an ID card, so all you have to do is swipe — saving you time and money. All meal plan ID cards are accepted at the all-you-can-eat Thomas More Dining Hall, on-campus  "Student's Choice," Outtakes Convenience, Einstein Bros. Bagels and The Roasterie. With the meal plan, the options are endless — even for those who have food allergies. The University dining hall has a specified area for those who have to avoid certain allergens, so there really is something for everyone. Plus, the dining hall is supported by an award-winning culinary team, which makes flavorful food options to sustain your body and mind. Visit the Dining Services website for more information on menus and catering services.
