Lincoln Park Guide to Student Housing

​​​​​Welcome

Welcome to DePaul University, residents! Living on campus is an important aspect of college education. Residence halls are more than just rooms or places to study and sleep. They are places where students will develop meaningful friendships, explore new ideas, and get involved with the university community. Living on campus provides the opportunity to learn how to balance the academic and social aspects of life at DePaul University, as safely as possible. 

Though we expect a return to more normal housing practices in 2021-22, we have learned a lot from the previous year. Staff will continue to follow COVID-19 guidelines provided by the university, City of Chicago, State of Illinois, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Therefore, details in this guide may be subject to change.​

Living on campus is an experience that requires:
  • Residents to behave appropriately 
  • Residents to balance individual freedoms with respect for others 
  • Residents to use negotiation and compromise 

We encourage residents to learn from one another as they adjust to their new home. Take this opportunity to read carefully through each section of the Guide to Student Housing, as it will help residents understand housing policies and procedures specific to this year.

Note: The most up to date version of this guide will always be available to students on our website and we will, to the best of our ability, announce any major changes.​​
