If a student experiences COVID symptoms or has been exposed as a close contact, the student should get tested immediately. Visit DePaul’s COVID-19 Updates  and Guidance site​ for information on COVID testing. 

For more COVID-related information, students may visit the COVID-19 Campus Housing Information webpage, which has the most up-to-date policies and procedures.

Minor Illness & Injury

A minor incident or illness is a situation that does not require immediate emergency room treatment. For example, we recommend that if a resident has the flu, they should stay in their room and not attend classes or work. The resident should remain rested until they have been fever-free for at least 24 hours, but should communicate with instructors as soon as possible if missing classes. Resident advisors are available to help with any minor illnesses (e.g., if food delivery is needed). Residents can also contact DePaul Student Health Services (see below).

Serious Illness & Injury

A serious incident or illness is one that needs immediate professional emergency care. Residents are advised to dial 911 or to contact Public Safety at (773) 325-7777.

Emergency Hospitalization & Mental Health / Substance Abuse

If a resident experiences an emergency that requires intervention regarding an emergency hospitalization due to mental health or substance use concerns, the resident may be required to meet with Residential Education and the Dean of Students Office within three business days of the resident's return to campus. Residents in these scenarios may also be required to provide documentation from a licensed mental health provider.

DePaul Student Health Services

Health Services partners with AMITA Sage Medical Group, which is a community healthcare provider located on the Lincoln Park Campus at 1150 W. Fullerton Ave. Office visits and basic lab work are covered by the health services fee. All Lincoln Park residents are automatically billed the health services fee to their DePaul Student Account.
