Room Selection, Continued

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 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 detailed information about these apartments, click here. Limited singles are also available in traditional halls.

Due to our new Online Room Selection process, residents will have the ability 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

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.

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 2020-21 terms and conditions.
