There is a variety of off-campus dining choices for Rochester College students. Rochester Hills has a mixture of local and regional restaurant establishments, as well as the nationally known chains and franchises. Downtown Rochester, in particular, has a wide array of restaurants to choose from. Fast food is abundant. Prices are modest for most restaurants. Most do not have dress codes, though students should probably bear in mind the time of year before they head out to eat.

Pizza and other food-delivery services shouldn't have a problem delivering to residence halls, but students may have to be mindful of the curfew and lights-out policies in their hall. For grocery/snack shopping, nearby Meijer is a big-box retailer open 24 hours. Other grocery outlets exist as well, with an assortment of food choices.
