You have finally arrived at DePaul for Fall Quarter 2023! So, now what? Here are some topics on-campus residents typically ask about as they get settled in…
Didn’t get your Blue Demon Card in the mail? Do not panic! On-campus residents can go to the ID Card Services Office, which is located inside the Student Center, 2250 N. Sheffield Avenue, Room 109. Remember, incoming residents need their Blue Demon Card. These are the hours for ID Card Services on major move-in days:
When you arrive on campus to move-in, please go to the check-in station for your residential building as indicated on the Lincoln Park Check-In Stations Map. At the check-in station, you will receive a welcome packet that has the keys to your unit and wristbands for your moving helpers.
The visitor policy will permit any 1-2 visitors per resident. This includes non-DePaul students, extended family, and other external guests. For more information, please visit the Visitor Policies webpage.
If you are having trouble with your room keys and/or Blue Demon Card (student ID card) hall access, visit your Area Office during move-in hours for assistance. After-hours assistance is available by visiting the front desk receptionist who will contact a resident assistant (RA) for support.
All moving/product boxes should be broken down and taken along with garbage to the designated trash rooms on each floor in each hall or to the dumpsters outside of the residence halls. It is preferred to dispose of large boxes and trash items directly to the dumpsters.
