Department of Housing > Assignments > Room Selection
Our new online Room Selection process for 2020-21 is underway! If you are a returning student and complete your housing agreement before June 5, you will receive an email with further instructions for scheduling an appointment time to choose your apartment.
Room Selection remains adaptable in the wake of the current pandemic, and details and dates are subject to change. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please remember, DePaul Housing is here to support you as we all go through this process.
We offer unique apartments that provide plenty of space, convenience, and flexibility for our returning students. Apply today and find your next place!
The Room Selection process includes the following steps:
Like any relationship, we understand you might not be ready to commit just yet. If you do not participate in the online Room Selection process in June, or you have just recently applied, we will keep your housing agreement active from Monday, July 6 through Friday, August 14. 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.
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.

*For Fall 2020: Some apartments are unavailable and occupancy will be reduced. Please see our Fall 2020 FAQ for more information.

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.
