Fall Quarter 2021

​​​​​​​​Last Updated: July 6, 2021

Be sure to follow this webpage as well as the COVID-19 Campus Housing Information​ webpage​ for regular updates.​

DePaul University is planning for residence halls and apartments on the Lincoln Park and Loop campuses to open at regular occupancy for Fall Quarter, including a return of students living together with roommates and suitemates.

We will accommodate both incoming freshmen and continuing students seeking an on-campus residential experience. While we may hold some rooms in reserve, to accommodate possible need for quarantine or isolation, we do not expect this to have a significant impact on our overall occupancy.

Yes, there will be housing available during the 2021-22 academic year and we expect it to have pre-COVID levels for our occupancy.

We are returning to our normal rate structure for both housing and meal plans. Please visit our Housing Rates webpage and Meal Plan Types & Rates webpage for more information.

Returning to normal occupancy means most of our traditional, suite, and apartment-style units have students living together. The number of roommates varies based on the size and unit type. DePaul offers a roommate matching section in the Housing portal for new students looking for roommates.

Housing agreements for 2021-22 will remain open throughout the year. Housing assignments will be made based on availability and on a first-come, first-served basis.

Our Room Selection process for continuing students will be virtual and will begin in mid-May. For sophomores and upperclassmen, we have amazing apartment-style living on the Lincoln Park campus as well as a variety of unit types at University Center (Loop). We plan to house as many of our sophomores and upperclassmen as we are able and as space allows.

Students who would like to cancel their housing for Fall Quarter 2021 must follow instructions on our Cancellation webpage, which includes deadlines to cancel without penalty.

Students entering our Discover Chicago courses will move in one week prior to the start of classes to enjoy the city experience that comes with being part of Immersion Week. Exact move-in dates and times will be by appointment, but you can plan on moving in sometime the weekend of August 28-29.
