When can I apply for housing?

Housing is assigned on a rolling basis throughout the academic year, as it becomes available. Students are encouraged to apply as soon as they are accepted to DePaul and confident they will be attending​.​

I applied for fall housing. Can I change my preferences?

Students may edit their preferences until June 1 by re-logging into the housing agreement. Prefere​nces are not guaranteed and will not be accepted after June 1.

I applied for fall housing. When will I know building/roommate details?

​Students will receive a letter around the first week of July. Letters are mailed to the student's home address, as listed in Campus Connect.

What if I have questions about my meal plan?

Learn more about meal plans, including types, rates and requirements, on our meal plan FAQ page​.​​​​​

What is my room like (square footage, dimensions, furniture, etc.)?

Room setups vary by type of room and hall, which means we can't provide exact dimensions for individual units. Rather, we encourage prospective residents to view our Housing Options page and virtual tour for building information, approximate floor plans, photos and videos.
