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 and communicate with instructors as soon as possible if they are missing classes. Resident Assistants (RAs) 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). 


Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for the most up to date COVID-19 related instructions on quarantining, isolation and safety measures. Call your healthcare provider to discuss questions regarding symptoms and possible treatment options and call 911 if you are experiencing a medical emergency. ​​

​Serious Illness & Injury

​A serious incident or illness is one that needs immediate professional emergency care. Residents are advised to dial 911 if they are experiencing a medical emergency. Students can also call Public Safety at (773) 325-7777 to request transport to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center ​

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 the Department of Housing & Residence Life and the Dean of Students Office within three (3) 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. ​
