DePauw University Meal Plans

Note: For Fall 2020, all students living in DePauw-owned housing were auto-enrolled in the COVID meal plan, with 18 swipes per week.  This ensured students had access to adequate nutrition, even in the event of quarantine or isolation.  For Spring 2021, all students living in DePauw-owned housing will be auto-enrolled in the Traditional ResHall meal plan, with 18 swipes per week.  However, students living in Rector Village (RV) and University Owned Apartments and Houses (UOAH) will have a second option, the NonTrad ResHall meal plan with 12 swipes per week.  The NonTrad ResHall meal plan is being provided because RV and UOAH have more robust kitchen spaces when compared to traditional residence halls.  Based on feedback from Fall 2020, some students prefer cooking meals themselves and utilizing a lower cost option.  The Traditional ResHall and NonTrad ResHall meal plans are summarized in the table below.  DePauw Dining will be in touch about a "meal plan change" request form before the start of Spring 2021.

DePauw University offers 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 normally an all-you-care-to-eat meal at Hoover Hall during operating hours or a meal swipe equivalent used at the Student Union Convenience Store, Blend, or Café Allegro. Please keep in mind that services and locations are subject to change for health and safety reasons, including (but not limited to) COVID.
