With the exception of university-provided gas stoves, open flames (including candles and incense) are prohibited within all campus housing. DePaul University has a zero-tolerance policy for flammable items and will remove items on sight. Confiscated flammable items will not be returned to residents and are discarded. If an open flame is discovered, this violation type is more serious and will result in a $150 fee assessed to each person in the housing unit. In addition to the fee for serious-nature infractions, the housing staff will submit an incident report. The incident report will be processed through Residential Education and the resident may be referred through the student conduct process.
