Emergency Info

Security and safety information including detailed campus emergency operations plans are available at:​​.​

Cancellations and Closures

In the event of large-scale class cancellations or major campus closures caused by severe inclement weather or an emergency at any of our campus locations, an alert will be posted on the home page of DePaul's website and messages will be available on the university's main phone number at 312-362-8000 and on the general announcement line at 312-362-6226. Information will be updated as it becomes available. In the event of smaller scale cancellations, students will be notified via email.

DPU Alerts

For a major disaster, DePaul's home page will be replaced with an emergency information website. DePaul also will send out important emergency information via phone, email and text message using the DPU Alert system.  Ensure your contact information is correct by logging into Campus Connect, select Self Service, then Personal Information, and then DPU Alert.  Please input your complete email address and enter at least one phone number.

Because email is a critical communication tool, it is important that students, faculty and staff keep their demographic portfolio updated in Campus Connect. Please check that site to ensure you have reported your most current off-hours contact information, and update it whenever you move or obtain a new phone number.​

Emergency Closing Center

In addition, the Emergency Closing Center has established a website at where you can enter the name of your campus or its main phone number and check the status. If you see "No Report" that means DePaul is open for business as usual. Each of DePaul’s campuses is listed separately. This site also offers you the opportunity to receive an automatic email when your campus status has changed.
