Housing Assignments

Housing Assignments 
All campus housing assignments are made by DePaul Housing. The published rates are based on full occupancy of each room, suite or apartment, which ranges from one to eight residents. In no case will DePaul Housing make assignments in violation of the university’s anti-discrimination policy

Identity & Special Considerations 

DePaul University respects the privacy of its students and recognizes that some students may be particularly concerned about privacy and confidentiality related to gender identity. DePaul Housing and Residential Education will consistently recognize and respect the gender identity that students self-identify to DePaul University in good faith. Additionally, students may self-identify to DePaul Housing if they wish to receive special housing considerations regarding their gender identity, but are by no means obligated to do so. If students do self-identify and request special considerations, DePaul Housing will not require students to provide more information than that which is required of other students. Furthermore, all information will be kept strictly confidential to the best of DePaul’s ability and will only be used for purposes designated by the student.

Reassignment 

The university, whose judgment shall be final, retains the right to reassign residents to other campus accommodations in order to maintain efficient operation of the premises and ensure protection of the community.
