Is your student considering living off campus next year? Check out these resources!

Many DePaul students begin thinking about moving from home or the residence halls to an off-campus location near the Loop or Lincoln Park campus around this time of year. You probably have a lot of questions, so DePaul has some tips and resources for you as you and your student embark on this journey. 

Housing Agreements for consideration of on-campus housing were due Monday, April 1 for the 2019-2020 academic year. If your student did not submit one but would like to live on campus next academic year, contact the Housing and Student Centers at

Many leases are up by May and June 1, so if your student decides to live off-campus next year, they should start looking for an apartment soon, as they will start to appear on the market now. 

Commuter Student Affairs has partnered with Off-Campus Partners to establish a DePaul off-campus housing web page to help your student with their apartment search. They have compiled a helpful Off-Campus Housing Guide for you and your student to  look at, so make sure to take a look at these two important resources. If you have any questions, email​.

There is also an Off-Campus Housing Fair in the Lincoln Park Student Center Atrium on Wednesday, April 24 from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm. We encourage students to attend the fair so they can meet with apartment representatives, learn about Chicago neighborhoods, find potential roommates and more!
