Moving Assistance

Professional moving assistance is not available when moving out. Beginning Friday, June 5, 2020, from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m., residents will have the option of issuing guest wristbands to up to five guests who are actively involved in their move-out. The wristband will allow guests to come in and out without needing to be signed in and out each time. All guests are required to show a valid state- or government-issued ID and have a resident present before being issued a wristband. This option may only be used once by each resident.

Parking Information

Beginning Friday, June 5, 2020, and running through Saturday, June 13, 2020, the issued guest wristbands will also include one day of complimentary parking in the Sheffield Avenue or Clifton Avenue university parking garages. There are certain street locations that also have free parking. Please be mindful of city metering, tow zones, no-parking areas and street signage. There is no parking available for trailers on university property.


DePaul SWAP is a rummage sale that allows residents to donate unwanted items and clothing to be resold to raise money for an emergency fund for the DePaul community. Students will receive information about how to donate reusable items at donation locations in your residence hall in early June ahead of the event. Learn more.

Lincoln Park Meal Plan

After June 12, 2020, any balance remaining on your meal plan will be forfeited and is not refundable.

Common Damages & Cleaning Charges
