Resources For Once You Are Here

Once you get settled into our campus community, we want to make sure you know about the following resources:

  •  Dining Services
  •  Technology Resources
  •  Mail Center
  •  Welcome Week

  • Dining Services

    Your DePaul meal plan allows you to dine at the following locations: Lincoln Park Student Center second floor, Brownstone’s Café, McGowan Café, Bean Caffés, ETC… store, and Loop Campus DePaul Market. Students can change to a higher plan or add money at any time, but may only change to a lower plan before the end of the second week of each academic quarter. You can add money to dining plans by logging in to Campus Connect, clicking on “Meal Plan Online” an dfollowing the steps. All meal plan dollars remaining on a student's card will roll over from quarter to quarter until the end of spring quarter, June 10, 2017. After that date, any remaining balance will be forfeited and is not refundable. Learn more about dining and meal plans here.

    Technology Resources

    Technology Support Center (TSC) provides technical assistance for DePaul supported software, systems, networking and services. The TSC provides technical support via telephone, email, as well as self-service through Campus Connection.
    Web: Log in to Campus Connect and select the “Technology Support Center” link to create a self-service ticket.

    Mail Center

    The Student Mail Center--located in the Student Center, Suite 317--provides you with a centralized, on-campus location to receive all of your mail and packages. The Student Mail Center is responsible for issuing mailbox keys. 

    We ask you to check your residential mailbox a minimum of once a week, as you will be held accountable for any university information sent to your residential mailbox. Below is how to address your mail:

    Student’s Full Name (no Nncknames)
    DePaul University
    2250 North Sheffield, Suite #317
    Mailbox #____________
    Chicago, IL 60614
    Mailbox numbers and associated room numbers can be found in your assignment letter, as well as on this webpage. Mail notices are placed in mailboxes to notify you of packages and other mail that cannot fit into the mailbox. You must present the notice and your DePaul ID Card to the Student Mail Center’s service desk to receive the item(s). You are responsible for picking up your packages in the Student Mail Center and getting packages to your residence hall. Note: The Student Mail Center does not supply any equipment to aid in package delivery, such as dollies, carts or flatbeds.

    Deliveries will not be accepted at the hall front desks. If sending something of extreme importance, the Mail Center strongly encourages the use of UPS or FedEx (utilizing tracking and/or signatures).

    Welcome Week

    Welcome Week! is a series of free events taking place during the first days of fall quarter. These events are designed to introduce students who are new to campus and celebrate returning students coming back to campus. Events are open to all new, returning and transfer students and are a great opportunity to make new friends and reconnect with the old! Welcome Week runs from the end of August through the first week of classes.

    School Supply Drive

    Each year, the Department of Residential Education kicks off the year with a school supply drive to benefit Chicago-area schools. Donation bins will be located in the lobby of each residence hall. All school supplies are welcome. For more information, reach out to Residential Education at
