DePauw University Meal Plans

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, Cafe Roy, 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.  

Overview of meal plans

All students living in DePauw-owned housing must participate in a meal plan. 

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

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 card 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.
