Living On Campus

​ Living on campus is an important aspect of college education. Residence halls are more than just rooms or places to study and sleep. They are places where students develop meaningful friendships, explore new ideas and get involved with the university community. Living in on-campus housing provides the opportunity to learn how to balance the academic and social aspects of life at DePaul University. 

Below you'll find information about living on campus. If you have questions about topics not addressed below please check the Guide to Student Housing or contact the Department of Residential Education.
