Parking Information

Beginning Friday, June 1, 2018, and running through Saturday, June 9, 2018, 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. Please donate any reusable items at donation locations in your residence hall June 4 - 11, 2018, from noon until 4 p.m., ahead of the event on June 13, 2018. Learn more.

Lincoln Park Meal Plan

After June 8, 2018, any balance remaining on your meal plan will be forfeited and is not refundable.

Common Damages & Cleaning Charges

Each room will be inspected by staff  for damages and cleaning charges. If damages or cleaning issues are found, a fee will be assessed and an email will be sent to the email address you have listed in Campus Connect by August 1, 2018. To see examples of common charges, please visit our Damage Billing page. Please note that the list contained there is not exhaustive.

Residents are held responsible for any changes in room condition (damages, missing items, etc.) that were not reported or did not exist at the time of move-in. All residents were given an opportunity to report pre-existing conditions in their room via the housing condition report provided to them upon check-in.

All damages will be split equally between roommates (and suitemates for bathroom charges), unless written notification by the responsible party is provided to from the email address on file with the university by June 9, 2018, at the latest.​
