Housing > Assignments


Seton Assignment

Our assignments area works year-long to ensure that room assignments are maintained. They also handle room changes, oversee the resident agreement process and facilitate the annual room selection process, an event intended for residents who wish to return to campus housing.

Building & Room Assignments

Housing assignments are processed based on the date the housing agreement was completed. Students have the opportunity to rank their preferences of building and room types. Building and room preferences are taken into consideration when housing assignments are made but are not guaranteed. Students may be assigned to any building or room type.

Converted housing and temporary housing assignments are also possible. Read more about these assignments here.

Roommate Assignments

Specific roommate requests may be submitted when completing the housing agreement. Roommate requests will be taken into consideration when assignments are made but are not guaranteed. Roommate requests will not be accepted after June 1.

DePaul offers a roommate matching section as part of the housing agreement process that is recommended for new students looking for roommates.​

Housing Accommodations

DePaul Housing & Residence Life will make a good faith effort to provide housing that meets accommodation needs; however, availability is not guaranteed and potential options become more limited mid-year.​

Housing accommodations will be considered based on recommendations from the Center for Students with Disabilities​. To request housing accommodations due to a disability or medical condition, please contact the Center for Students with Disabilities at (773) 325-1677 or csd@depaul.edu.

Students are encouraged to reach out to the Center for Students with Disabilities upon submission of their housing agreement. Students seeking housing accommodations should explore all available options, including off-campus housing resources, which can be found at https://offcampushousing.depaul.edu/.

Statement on Gender Identity

DePaul University respects the privacy of its students and recognizes that some students may be particularly concerned about privacy and confidentiality related to gender identity. DePaul Housing and Residential Education will consistently recognize and respect the gender identity that students self-identify to DePaul University in good-faith. 

Students may self-identify to DePaul Housing and/or Residential Education if they wish to receive housing considerations regarding their gender identity, but are by no means obligated to do so. If students do self-identify and request considerations, DePaul Housing and/or Residential Education 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.​ Should you have questions or concerns regarding gender and DePaul Housing’s process, please email us at housing@depaul.edu​.
