All residence halls require residents to swipe their Blue Demon Card (physical student ID card or mobile version) in designated card readers to enter. Residents who do not have a Blue Demon Card prior to their move-in appointment must follow instructions to secure their mobile Blue Demon Card at bluedemoncard.depaul.edu. Residents only have access privileges to the hall in which they are assigned. Residents or visitors without appropriate photo identification will be denied access to the residence halls. Please review the Visitor Policy webpage for more information.
If a lock change is necessary for a unit, a work order should be submitted online, and a fee of $112 (plus $4 per key for key replacement) will be assessed. New keys may be picked up at the area office between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. If a resident does not pick up the new keys within one week of notice, a fee and/or disciplinary action may be assessed for failure to abide by this policy. If it is determined that an emergency lock change needs to occur, residents may be assessed an additional fee for this procedure. The copying of campus housing keys is prohibited. Bedroom doors within apartment units have privacy locks and can be locked from the inside, but not locked with a key. Residents may not add additional locks to residence doors or bedroom doors within a unit.
