In alignment with the city’s “Protecting Chicago” framework and the state’s “Restore Illinois” guidelines, DePaul University has established protocol for on or off-campus events and activities during Phase 4. It is critical to note that this is subject to change due to modifications to current guidance from city or state officials or a shifting in phases.
In accordance with recommendations from the
Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and DePaul’s commitment to keeping the community safe,
virtual meetings should be considered first and foremost. Departments considering an in-person gathering must demonstrate why a virtual option is impossible.
Outdoor areas may be utilized when and where available (e.g., when not being used for outdoor classes or fitness). Physical distancing must be applied. Please note, as has always been the case, the DePaul Center Terrace and the Lincoln Park Campus Quad must be reserved via
Student Centers/Conference Services.
If ANY of the following applies, individuals should stay at home and NOT come to campus or attending in-person gatherings:
Effective March 2, 2021, student organization in-person gatherings are allowed to resume with restrictions in place. To align with the City of Chicago’s restrictions on social gatherings, all student organization special events and meetings (on and off campus) must be to 50% capacity with no more than 50 people. All on and off campus events must be registered as part of the Phase 4 Event Approval Process, which is outlined below under the “Events Registration—Event Registration Overview and Requirements.”
Making the safety of our students, staff, and volunteers a priority.
Departments are required to submit a phase 4 form to host an on-campus event. Visit
