Department of Housing > Assignments > Room Selection
The Room Selection process includes the following steps:
In the Lincoln Park apartment communities, students enjoy larger spaces, more privacy and the convenience of their own living room and kitchen. Unlike traditional residence halls, the Lincoln Park apartment communities do not close during DePaul’s winter break, thus allowing students greater flexibility. Plus, apartments are fully furnished and feature cable, access to HBO Go, wireless internet and laundry facilities that do not require coins or card payments. Apartment residents also have the opportunity to participate in staff-organized activities throughout the academic year. Rates for the 2020-21 academic year will be released ~March 2020.

Located steps from DePaul's Loop Campus, the University Center includes suites and apartments. It is equipped with a fitness center, outdoor terrace, laundry facility and high-powered technology labs. The University Center got a complete remodel in 2018, so units boast new flooring, countertops and furniture. Learn more about the University Center here.

If you cannot attend your assigned Room Selection appointment, you may recruit a trusted friend (a proxy) to attend in your place by completing the proxy form. It is important to trust your proxy, as they will be selecting your space for the year and solidfying your commitment to campus housing.
If students are assigned to campus housing at Room Selection and need 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 and conditions for the full cancellation policy.
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 2020-21 terms and conditions.
