Using & Changing Plans

Adding Money to Plans

Residents who want to add funds to their meal plan can do so at any time.

  • For Lincoln Park residents with DePaul Plans, meal plan funds can be added at minimum value of $50 and in increments of $25. This value can be added  though the Meal Plan Change Request Form​. These charges will be billed to your student account. Once these funds have been added they cannot be refunded. (Residents with DePaul Plans can also add money via credit card by logging in to Campus Connect, clicking on “Meal Plan Online” and following the steps.) Residents can check their balance at any time by logging in to this link.
  • University Center residents can add additional flex money to their University Center ID card at any time by following this link​.

Changing Plans

Residents can upgrade to a higher dining plan or change to a lower plan (as long as it does not fall below the minimum required plan) only before the end of the second week of any quarter/semester in which the change is requested to take effect. To change a meal plan, please complete the Meal Plan Change Request Form​.

Meal plan cancellations, as a result of a housing cancellation, will not receive a refund after the second Friday of the quarter/semester.

Rollover Policy

For residents with DePaul Plans, dining plan values roll forward from fall to winter to spring quarter until the end of spring quarter on June 8, 2018. After that date, any remaining balance will be forfeited and is not refundable. 

There is no rollover for University Center meal plans. University Center flex dollars roll forward between quarters/semesters during the academic year but will be forfeited at the end of spring quarter/semester.
