Loop Residence Hall Option
The University Center (UC) offers the following apartment types that include a full kitchen: studio singles, four-bedroom/four-person with two bathrooms, and two-bedroom/four-person with two bathrooms. Residents in the apartment units are not required to purchase a meal plan.
In addition, the UC has traditional-style student housing, with quad semi-suites in which students are two to a room and four to a bathroom, and semi-suite deluxes, in which two students share a room and a bathroom. Residents in these units, which have no kitchen, are assigned a UC meal plan. The required meal plan can only be used in the UC building, but students can also purchase additional DePaul meal plans for use in DePaul campus buildings.
All residents are provided with a bed, desk and compartmentalized closet, with additional furniture where space permits. The UC features a laundry room, air-conditioning, and a dining services area, as well as a fitness center and a covered rooftop terrace garden located on the third floor. UC residents have access to meeting rooms, music practice rooms and an art studio.

2014-2015 Dining Plan Guidelines and Rates
Dining Plans allow students to use their DePaul ID card to purchase food items on campus. A variety of dining options are available at both the Lincoln Park and Loop campuses. Dining Plans operate on a declining balance as purchases are made, just like a debit card. Remaining balances will continue to roll over from term to term as long as the student resides on campus in consecutive terms (except summer). However, any remaining balance will be forfeited on June 12, 2015, at 5:00 p.m. Any leftover balance is not refundable. Also, all dollars remaining on Dining Plan accounts when residents vacate for one term or more shall be forfeited.
All residential students living in traditional campus housing are required to have a Dining Plan at specified minimums for each academic quarter. Students can choose from the Dining Plans (listed below). All first year students are required to purchase a minimum of the DePaul Plan for the fall and winter quarters, and may change their dining option to the Lite Plan during the spring quarter. All returning residents, not including first year students, must purchase a minimum of the Lite Plan for each quarter of the academic year. These guidelines apply for all those residing in traditional residence halls (Belden-Racine, Clifton-Fullerton, Corcoran, Munroe, Seton and University Hall).
Students residing in the university apartments (i.e. Sanctuary and McCabe) are required to purchase a minimum of the Apartment Plan each quarter. For students who commute or who are not required to have a Dining Plan, the Convenience Plan is an option. The cost is $150, and may be purchased quarterly. Students may also add money to this plan (or to any plan) at any time.
Please note: All students, including those living off campus or commuting, may add money onto their DePaul ID card at any time, by going to Campus Connection
, clicking on "Dining Plan Online," and following the directions. These added funds will allow you to dine at any location on campus that accepts Dining Plans.
