Identity and Special Considerations

DePaul respects the privacy of its residents and recognizes that some residents may be particularly concerned about privacy and confidentiality related to gender identity. The Department of Housing and Student Centers will consistently recognize and respect the gender identity that students self-identify to DePaul, in good-faith. Additionally, students may self-identify to the department if they wish to receive special housing considerations regarding their gender identity, but are by no means obligated to do so. If students do self-identify and request special considerations, the Department of Housing and Student Centers will not require students to provide more information than that which is required of other students. Furthermore, all information will be kept strictly confidential to the best of DePaul’s ability and will only be used for purposes designated by the student.
