Department of Housing > Resident Resources > Move-Out > Winter Break Closure
Students living in traditional halls—Belden-Racine Hall, Munroe Hall, and Ozanam Hall—are required to vacate their units by noon on November 25, 2020, although they do not need to move their belongings completely out of their units. It is imperative that move-out deadlines are met due to Winter Break. Residents who do not move out on time may receive a $150 improper move fee.
For the entire Winter Break period (see key dates), residents of campus apartments—McCabe Hall and University Center (Loop)—are allowed to remain on campus. Winter Break housing is included for these buildings.A few items to note for Traditional Hall Residents:
DePaul Housing's physical office (located in Centennial Hall) will close on Wednesday, November 25, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. and reopen on Monday, January 18, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. During this timeframe, our staff will work remotely Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. In observance of the winter holidays, DePaul Housing will close at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 22, 2020, until 9:00 a.m. on Monday, January 4, 2020.
If you have questions about Winter Quarter housing or Winter Break, please contact our office during business hours at (773) 325-7196 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
New freshmen and transfer students who are moving on campus for Winter Quarter must schedule a move-in appointment prior to arrival. Move-in appointments are available:
DePaul Housing will send new, incoming residents an appointment email, so they may choose their move-in date (either January 2 or 3). Selecting a move-in appointment confirms a resident's intent to move in for Winter Quarter.If you are unable to move-in on January 2 or 3, due to extraordinary circumstances, please email email@example.com. We will review requests on a case-by-case basis; therefore, we cannot guarantee accommodations.
Returning residents from traditional halls (i.e., students who lived on campus Fall Quarter and were required to leave their unit for break) must schedule a Winter Quarter move-in appointment prior to arrival. Move-in appointments are available:
DePaul Housing will send traditional hall residents an appointment email, so they may choose their move-in date (either January 2 or 3). Selecting a move-in appointment confirms a resident's intent to return to their hall for Winter Quarter and ensures that residents will have hall access on their DePaul IDs when they return to campus. If you are unable to return to campus on January 2 or 3, due to extraordinary circumstances, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review requests on a case-by-case basis; therefore, we cannot guarantee accommodations.Upon arrival, residents should have their DePaul ID card and unit keys to access their room. Returning to campus in winter looks different from the larger fall move-in. Unfortunately, DePaul Housing is unable to provide extra assistance during the Winter Quarter return process, so service elevators and access doors will not be available. If you bring family helpers (up to two) we will provide wristbands for them to wear, which will serve as in/out privileges at the front desk of your hall and will cover parking for up to one vehicle in the Sheffield Avenue parking garage.
