Winter Quarter FAQ

​Last Updated: October 8, 2020

On October 5, DePaul sent a communication to all students announcing that Winter Quarter would look much like Fall Quarter, but with some increased in-person class offerings and a modest increase in housing availability. Details about the additional housing are being released shortly. Please see information on timelines in related FAQs below. You may refer to Fall Quarter FAQs​ (where relevant).

Housing Agreements & Assignments

DePaul Housing and Residential Education will send an email to all students with an active housing agreement on Monday, October 19. This communication will include more details about Winter Quarter housing, the process for requesting housing, and an action list with due dates.

An email was sent from DePaul Housing on October 5 to all students with an active housing agreement to go to and complete their Agreement Review. This review will allow students to cancel their active agreement, with no cancellation fee, or keep their agreement active for Winter Quarter consideration.

DePaul Housing and Residential Education will communicate decisions about Winter Quarter Housing with all students who have requested an exception, approved or unapproved, the week of November 9.

If you are approved for on-campus housing, DePaul Housing will send your Winter Quarter housing assignment the week of November 9.

Just as we have done for Fall Quarter, all students living on campus for Winter Quarter will be assigned their own single room, as well as their own single bathroom. This allows for significantly increased safety protocols within housing.

All students currently living on campus and who remain in good standing may continue to live on campus Winter Quarter as well. DePaul Housing and Residential Education do not intend to re-assign current residents to a different unit.

For safety reasons related to cleaning and disinfecting, we do not intend to move any current residents to another unit or building. All students have a single room already, so changes are not necessary. If a student feels they have a compelling reason to change rooms, they should contact their building Residence Director. For more information, please refer to our Terms and Conditions (Section 8).

All 2020-21 Housing and meal plan rates have been established and will not change.
