DePaul Plans

DePaul plans may be used at all dining locations on the Lincoln Park campus, as well as the DePaul Center 11th floor dining area in the loop. All DePaul plans operate on a declining balance. Any plan balance remaining at the end of a given quarter will roll over quarter to quarter within the academic year but not between academic years. (For example, fall value would roll over to winter and spring, but year-end balances would be forfeited when that academic year ends in June.)
