Current News

We understand there may not have been enough time for students and parents to have their housing-related questions answered during the August 20 University Town Hall to discuss plans for Fall, as nearly 500 questions were submitted to DePaul leadership. Therefore, DePaul Housing is giving an opportunity for families to ask any unanswered questions about on-campus housing during our webinar on Thursday, August 27, at 4:00 p.m. Central.

The third webinar hosted by the DePaul Department of Housing is for confirmed Lincoln Park residents, so we may address questions and concerns related to their move on campus. To keep the discussion organized, our department will dedicate a specific amount of time to each of the following move-in topics: Early Move-In related to the Emergency Travel Order (5:00-5:30) AND Official Fall Quarter Move-In (5:30-6:00).

Both students and parents are welcome to attend. There are limited spaces available; registration is required. Click here to register on Zoom.

We understand students and families have questions regarding Fall Quarter and would like more details about housing operations and policies impacted by COVID-19, as well as other matters. In response, we created two pages on our website which will be continually updated with new information:

  • Return to Campus – explains what incoming residents should prepare for and expect leading up to Fall Quarter

  • Fall Quarter FAQs – questions and answers organized by specific topics, such as COVID-19, Applications & Assignments, Community & Social Issues, Facilities & Services, etc.

We highly recommend bookmarking and revisiting these pages as you prepare to live on our campus.
