For all questions related to move-in, please see the fall move-in page.
When are assignments (room, building and roommate) sent out?
On-campus housing is usually assigned for the upcoming fall quarter by late June.
Students who are confirmed for a unit on campus receive assignment letters in the
mail approximately by early July. Building and roommate assignments are also available in the Housing Portal at myhousing.depaul.edu. If your assigned roommate chooses not to come to DePaul, another will be assigned to the vacant space. We encourage you to check the portal periodically during the summer in case of updates.
For rooms with multiple beds, the decision of which student gets which bed is a
discussion that needs to be had amongst all roommates and must be
mutually agreed upon. For apartment-style units, Housing assigns students
individual bedrooms within the apartment.
When can I apply for housing?
Housing is assigned on a rolling basis throughout the academic year, as it becomes available. If you're looking to live on campus, no date is too late. We assign students to campus housing year-round on both the Lincoln Park and Loop campuses. Please Note: Housing is available for fall, winter and spring quarters! Visit the Apply for Housing tab for details.
If you are looking for details about specific types of housing, such as winter break housing or summer housing, those are also under the Apply for Housing tab.
What if I need a housing or meal plan accommodation?
Special housing accommodations will only be honored, depending on availability,
based on recommendations from the Center for Students with Disabilities. Students
are encouraged to contact the Center for Students with Disabilities
submission of their housing agreement. Meal plans are required for all students
living in Lincoln Park campus housing and for students living in suite-style units
at the University Center. If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies, please email Housing at firstname.lastname@example.org
. The dining center has various options and is able to meet many student needs. Keep in mind that you cannot be released from the meal plan requirement based on personal food choice, lifestyle or preferences (e.g., vegetarian, vegan), or other non-medically-based dietary requests. To learn more, visit our allergies and dietary needs page
I already applied for housing. Can I still change my preferences?
For incoming students, you
can change your preferences (building, room type and roommate request) as many times as you would like up until June 1 and you will not get penalized for doing so, as we will make assignments based on the original agreement submission date. Preferences are not accepted after June 1. Once you move into your unit, you may request a room/building/campus change after the third week of classes. Read more about room change requests here
