The residence hall that is shared with other local universities, though DePaul students are assigned to common floors and units to allow our students to get acquainted and build a DePaul community. Students of any major or year in school can live in the Loop, and residents range from freshmen through law/graduate school students.

In addition, the University Center is staffed with a 24-hour professional security company and the building is open for the entire academic year, including breaks. Residents also have the opportunity to stay through the summer quarter.

The University Center is central to some of Chicago's premier downtown attractions. It is within walking distance of the Harold Washington Library, Grant Park and Lake Michigan, and near a plethora of restaurants, shopping and much more.
