DePauw University Meal Plans

Beginning in the fall of 2015, DePauw is switching from a declining balance meal plan to a traditional meal plan that provides a number of meal swipes per week (flex dollars are also available with all meal plans to provide students with additional options).  A meal or card swipe (“swipe”) is an all-you-care-to-eat (AYCTE) meal at the Hub during normal operating hours or a meal swipe alternative can be used at the Den Bistro or at Blend, the Hub Express, Café Roy, or Café Allegro. 

Overview of meal plans

All students living in DePauw University owned housing must participate in a meal plan.  There are three general plan offerings with two options per meal plan:  Residence Hall Meal Plans, Rector Village Meal Plans, and University Owned Apartments and Houses (UOAH) Meal Plans.  In addition, a Winter Term meal plan is required for students living in DePauw housing during this term.  Any change request to meal plans must be submitted by September 2nd for the First Semester and February 3rd for the Second Semester.  Visit the following site to change your default meal plan (note you must be logged into your Google Apps account to access this form).

The table below summarizes meal plans.  Additional information can be found in our meal plan summary page.
