DePaul students living off-campus, as well as faculty and staff, may purchase a meal plan. Meal plans available to those living off campus include the Flex 300 plan and options available for Lincoln Park on-campus residents.
Meal allotments are to be used at DePaul's all-you-can-eat dining halls Create (Lincoln Park campus) and Loop Market (Loop campus). Flex dollars are reserved for on-campus cafes and other dining locations just outside the main dining halls, as well as the ETC on-campus convenience store.
Meal plans for Lincoln Park residents provide a set number of meal allotments to be used each period, which vary depending on the plan type and are for personal use only. Meal allotments begin on Sunday and continue through Saturday.
Meal plans also provide students with Flex dollars. Flex dollars can be used for purchases outside of the main dining areas (such as campus cafes) and can be used when classes are not in session (such as Spring Break). Flex dollars are made available on the first day of each quarter and unused dollars roll forward to the next quarter. Any Flex dollars remaining at the end of Spring Quarter will be forfeited.
Meal plans are loaded on your DePaul ID card. Simply present your DePaul ID to the cashier to enjoy all-you-care-to-eat dining at Blue Demon Dining Hall, a daily carry-out meal or a daily exchange at one of our exciting platforms. Meal plans can be added, changed or cancelled by using the Resident Meal Plan Request, but cannot be changed or cancelled after the dates listed in the
Terms & Conditions.
Non-residents may choose any of the following plans:

These meal plans can be used at DePaul dining locations in the Lincoln Park Campus and at the Loop Campus (DePaul Center, 11th Floor). Additional dining location information can be found on our
