Is there a cost to attend Welcome Week events?

There is no cost for most Welcome Week events. Almost all Welcome Week events are free to all DePaul students!

How do I get my CTA/UPASS/Ventra Card?

First, when we use any of these terms, we're talking about the same thing.

Second, it depends!

If you are a new student beginning Winter or Spring quarter, look for an email with details about picking up your UPASS during the first week of classes.

If you are a returning student, your UPASS will reactivate on the first day of classes each quarter. You do not need to pick up a new pass.

Do I need anything to attend Welcome Week events?

​All you'll need is your DePaul student ID - this is your ticket to entering almost all Welcome Week events!

An RSVP is not required to attend most events; Events requiring an RSVP will say so in their event descriptions​ on OrgSync​.

I need my student ID - when is ID Services open?

ID Services Hours

  • Monday - Friday:  9am - 5pm

If you are a returning student and need a new ID, you'll need to go to ID Services to have it replaced, for which there is a cost. ​

I have mail in the Student Mail Center - when can I pick that up?

The mail center will be open the following hours during the academic year: 

  • Monday - Friday: 10 am - 8:30 pm

Is there someone who can help me with setting up my technology?

Where and when can I eat on campus?

Your meal plan begins the day you move in to your residence hall, regardless of what day that is, or the first day of classes for commuter meal plans. Visit DePaul Dining Services​ for information about locations and hours.

Is there an app that can help me transition to being a student at DePaul?

​iDePaul is our app, and it can be a big help to you on the go!
