Meal Plan Setup for 2018-19

DePaul University, in partnership with our dining vendor, Chartwells, has made significant changes to the dining program for the 2018-19 academic year. The biggest change is a move from a purely declining balance based meal plan to a combination of an All-You-Care-to-Eat (AYCE) meal swipe environment with fewer declining balance dollars. The biggest reason for this change was to afford students greater value and more dining flexibility. The AYCE model is actually more common at colleges and universities across the country. Learn more about the plan under "How do I use my meal plan?" on our meal plan FAQ page.
