DePauw University Meal Plans

Note: for Fall 2020, all residential students were auto-enrolled in the COVID-19 meal plan. Commuter students and Greek Students living in fraternities and sororities had the option to buy meal plans. 

DePauw University offers traditional meal plans that provide a number of meal swipes per week (flex dollars and community plus dollars are also available with all meal plans to provide students with additional options).  A meal or card “swipe” is an all-you-care-to-eat meal at Hoover Hall during normal operating hours or a meal swipe alternative can be used at the Student Union Convenience Store, Blend, or Café Allegro. 

Overview of meal plans

All students living in DePauw University owned housing must participate in a meal plan. There are three categories of meal plans (with two options per category):  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.  The default meal plan for students living in residence halls (which includes Rector Village) is the Residence Hall Meal Plan with 18 swipes per week, $200 Flex and $50 Community Plus. The default meal plan for students living in UOAH is the UOAH Meal Plan with 4 swipes per week, $100 Flex and $50 Community Plus.

Change requests to meal plans must be submitted by TBD for the Fall Semester and January 15th for the Spring Semester.  To change your meal plan, log in to your e-Services account and click on "Campus Life" on the side menu, then select "Meal Plan Change Form." 

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

Students are automatically registered for the default meal plans when they sign their housing contract each year.

Parents and students can also add Tiger Express dollars to their DePauw ID. This works like a prepaid debit for on-campus meals/food, bookstore purchases and out-in-town dining.  

Current meal swipe, Flex dollar and Community Plus dollar balances are now available at get.cbord.com/depauw. Students should go to the HelpDesk for assistance if they have any issues signing up for an account on our GET site.
