Room Selection

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Last updated: July 30, 2021

Online self-selection will be available at myhousing.depaul.edu​​ through August 13, 2021. Units that are viewable in the portal are all the units available at that time. ​

s a continuing student, you are welcome to continue searching for an on-campus unit via the housing portal. However, as we’re approaching Fall Quarter 2021, on-campus spaces are very limited and we encourage you to consider these off-campus housing options:

Please watch this webpage, as some details are subject to change.

Students who have taken classes at DePaul—Spring 2021 or before—and will continue to take classes at DePaul next academic year are considered "continuing students". Continuing students live in our campus apartments and they have the added benefit of selecting their campus housing through our online Room Selection process.

Home Is Here poster

We offer unique apartments that provide plenty of space, convenience, and flexibility for our continuing students. Apartment options are available on both the Lincoln Park and Loop​ campuses and are viewable on our Housing Options page​.

We understand many continuing students will be living on campus for the first time during the 2021-22 academic year. Please know that campus apartments also have Resident Advisors (RAs) and Residence Directors (RDs) available as a support system.

Campus apartments are mixed in with DePaul buildings and our traditional residential halls. Campus apartments are fully furnished apartments with a kitchen and a shared living space. Campus apartments also feature Philo TV streaming, wireless internet, and laundry facilities within the building.

During Winter Break, campus apartments do not close, which allows students to remain on campus during the break. Residents also have many opportunities to participate in staff-organized hall activities and programs.

Our online Room Selection process allows residents to request their housing assignment with up to three roommate requests (total of four people). Details on the roommate process will be shared when you receive your Room Selection appointment.

Students who require specific housing accommodations or considerations must ensure they are registered with the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD). All housing accommodations will be guaranteed for students who complete their registration process with CSD prior to April 1. Any accommodation requests that are submitted after April 1 will still be considered, but accommodations will be made based on availability.

Housing Cancellation

There is no housing charge or commitment when completing the Housing Agreement for Room Selection. However, if a student is assigned to campus housing at Room Selection and needs to cancel after being assigned but prior to the start of their housing agreement, then there is a $1,500 cancellation fee. Further charges are applicable once the housing agreement has started. Please see section 4 of the Terms & Conditions for the full cancellation policy.

Meal Plan Cancellation

Signing the housing agreement holds students to the meal plan terms and conditions. If a student cancels their housing agreement, the meal plan will be cancelled for any future quarters. Full meal plan terms can be found in section 5 of the 2021-22 Terms & Conditions.
