Life in a
residence hall is an important aspect of a college experience. Residence halls are more
than just rooms or places to sleep. They are places where students develop
meaningful friendships, explore new ideas and get involved with the university
community. Living in on-campus housing provides the opportunity to learn to balance the
academic and social aspects of life at
DePaul University. Residents often live on campus for the sense of community, safety and convenience.
2017-18 Agreement Information
New First-Year, Transfer, Law and Graduate Students:
You must be admitted to DePaul University in order to apply
for on-campus housing. Once admitted, use the login information provided
in your application acknowledgement letter from the Office of Admissions
to access the online Housing Agreement. On-campus housing is on a first-come, first-served basis. We encourage all prospective residents to apply as soon as possible after admission to DePaul, as on-campus housing is limited and not guaranteed.
For students entering DePaul in fall 2017, the online agreement is through your Campus Connect
account. Your login and password is listed in your application
acknowledgement letter from the Office of Admissions. (The DePaul University ID number is the 7-digit number of the password used to access Campus Connect for the first time—for example, D-1234567. You only need the numerical portion.) If you have lost
your login information, contact the Help Desk at (312) 362-8765.
Once logged onto Campus Connect, click on Self
Service under the main menu. Select Student Resources. Proceed by
clicking the Housing Services link. Alternately, take the following steps: Main Menu > Self Services > Admission > Next Steps > Campus Housing. Follow the prompt under the ‘Applying for Housing’ section to access the agreement link. Once you access the link to the agreement, you will reach the ‘Home’ page. From there, click the Agreement tab. Click on the Agreement Academic Year bubble and click ‘Save & Continue.’
A $400 prepayment must be made in order for your agreement to be complete. If you are under 18 years old at the time of applying, you will need to fill out the parent guardian voucher and return the form to our office by sending it via postal mail or by scanning and emailing it.
