Ram Account

The Ram Account is designed to provide URI students, faculty and staff with a convenient, safe and efficient system for making purchases from participating vendors.

By adding funds to the Ram Account, you are eligible to make purchases at any of the participating locations and your account will automatically be debited.


You can check your balance at any time and additional money can be added to your account throughout the semester. Ram Account balances transfer from year to year until a student withdraws or graduates, at which time a refund can be requested for the unused balance less a $50.00 service charge.


  • Ask your cashier to print a receipt with your current balance
  • URI Dining mobile app
  • Visit our Housing, Dining, & ID Office at the Memorial Union
  • Use one of our convenient Card Value Ports located in the library, Hope Commons, or the Memorial Union. Card Value Ports are also a convenient self-service way to add funds to your account
