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.
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.
The Room Selection process includes the following steps:
We understand you might not be ready to commit to campus housing in May. If you do not participate in the online Room Selection process in May, or you apply after May 1, we will keep your housing agreement active through Friday, August 13, 2021. You will retain the ability to select campus housing as spaces become available in the Housing Portal. Please be aware that spaces will be limited.
We understand these are challenging times, so we encourage you to make the choice that is best for your situation. If you have already decided that you are not interested in campus housing, please go to myhousing.depaul.edu and cancel your housing agreement.
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.

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.
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.
