We encourage you to check your DePaul inbox regularly as you will receive another email the last week of December regarding your Winter Quarter check-in. Your official check-in will activate your residence hall access.

At this time, the City of Chicago Travel Advisory does not require vaccinated individuals who travelled domestically to self-quarantine or self-isolate. Residents who travelled internationally need to get a negative COVID-19 viral test no more than 1 day before returning the United States. 

If you are experiencing COVID symptoms upon your return to campus, get tested immediately and avoid contact with others. Testing is available on campus and students must book an appointment.  

Per the January 13 announcement from the university, everyone in the DePaul community will be required to provide proof of a booster by Tuesday, March 1, 2022. For more information, visit DePaul’s COVID-19 Updates and Guidance website

DePaul expects everyone to take a COVID test before their return to campus, ideally no longer than 72 hours before arrival.

For those who cannot get tested before coming back to campus, testing will be available on campus. Before you schedule a COVID test on campus, please note these testing hours:

Lincoln Park COVID testing hours at Sullivan Athletic Center

Tuesdays 12:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Wednesdays 11:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Fridays 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.


Loop COVID testing hours at the DePaul Center

Mondays 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Thursdays 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.


If you receive a positive test result, we ask that you refrain from coming to campus until it is safe to do so (i.e., no symptoms and a negative test result).

If you are experiencing symptoms upon arrival, we urge you to get tested immediately. Please visit DePaul’s COVID-19 Testing webpage for more information about on-campus testing. You may also refer to your DePaul Housing Quarantine & Isolation Guide for more information:

If you’re having difficulty scheduling a COVID test, you may reach out to Residential Education at resed@depaul.edu during regular business hours, Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. A staff member will contact you with a number of options. 

You may visit the Visitor Policies webpage for the most current guidance and future updates.
