The Teams Who Serve You

DePaul's dining services feeds hungry minds like yours. We offer a number of meal plans to fit your needs and dining locations with a variety of foods—from local fare to international cuisine. Meal plans are required for all residents living in Lincoln Park housing and residents living in suites at the University Center. DePaul students who live off campus (commuter students) may also purchase meal plans.

The dining program at DePaul University is managed by two groups:

The Department of Housing & Residence Life is in charge of the administrative functions and facilities for on-campus dining. You may contact this department if you have questions about meal plan options, rates, and adjustments. The department also works in partnership with Chartwells, a dining provider for higher education.
