yes! I am a vegetarian and I have had no trouble at all finding a variety of food here. Obviously there are lots of choices outside of the dining hall since we live in such a big city, but it's not tough to find good food on campus either.
Thanks! The school seems great

Many students say the food at DePaul is preferable to other colleges they have visited. There are a lot of choices for students, and the University tries to address diverse ethnic and nutritional needs. DePaul also makes an attempt to encourage healthy eating, and offers both vegetarian and vegan options to its students. On-campus food is definitely the easiest option for freshmen, and most of the dining places are centrally located in the Student Center on the Lincoln Park campus. Freshmen are required to purchase some form of a meal plan, and there are plenty of options for other students, but most students rarely eat on campus after their first year. The plans here work like a debit card—students select the amount of money they would like to be allotted per quarter for meals, and then they “charge” food to their meal plan.
Both campuses have a good selection of the same basic items. However, pay attention to what you’re eating because the options aren’t always that healthy. The food here is also overpriced, but most students still have a hard time using up their entire meal plan by the end of the year. So, if nothing else, be aware of what you chose to eat and what you are spending your money on because you will not get a refund at the end of the year if you do not use your entire meal plan.
