IMPORTANT: DePaul University's visitor guidelines are subject to change. For the most up to date visitor policy info, visit the Visitor Policies webpage​ of the Department of Housing & Residence Life (”DePaul Housing”) website.​

Having visitors in DePaul University residence halls is a privilege. A visitor is defined as anyone who is not an assigned resident of a specific room, apartment, or building. Visitors are typically welcome to visit at any time of the day. All visitors who do not live in the building (including DePaul students or residents from another residence hall on campus) must present valid identification. Visiting DePaul students can show their mobile or physical Blue Demon Card (DePaul ID card). Non-DePaul student visitors must show a valid government-issued ID (examples include a valid driver’s license, valid state-issued ID card, valid military ID card, or passport). ​

The following information should be taken into consideration regarding visitors:

  • As hosts, residents may be personally and financially responsible for the actions and behaviors of their visitors.  
  • Visitors must be personally known to residents.  
  • Residents are responsible for informing visitors of the policies and procedures of campus housing. Visitors must always abide by the university and residential policies and procedures​.  
  • Residents are accountable and may be subject to disciplinary action if visitors violate a policy or procedure.  
  • Visitors who exhibit inappropriate behavior may be required to leave campus housing. 
  • Staff will not escort a visitor into any units without a resident host.​
