Food Deliveries

To receive food deliveries from local restaurants or grocery stores, you’ll need to use the street address for your residence hall. Enter the name of your residence hall in the URI Interactive Map to find your street address.

Please note that exterior doors to residence halls are locked 24/7, so you will need to meet your delivery person at a designated door.
