Tips & Info for Starting at DePaul Mid-Year
When are the bookstores open for me to buy books?
Lincoln Park Bookstore Hours:
Monday - Friday: 9 am - 6 pm
Saturday: 10 am - 3 pm
Loop Bookstore Hours:
- Friday: 7 am - 10 pm
Saturday: 8 am - 8 pm
Sunday: 11 am - 6 pm
A tip for new book buyers: if you have courses on the Loop campus, you'll go to the Loop bookstore to buy your books. If your class is in Lincoln Park, your books will be at the Lincoln Park bookstore.
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.
