Welcome to DePaul University!

The entire DePaul community is excited to welcome you to campus. The Division of Student Affairs strives to assist students and their families in making a smooth transition into life at DePaul through its Office of New Student and Family Engagement.

We do this by providing a holistic orientation experience for all new students and families as well as connecting students and families to services, resources, and engagement opportunities necessary to successfully navigate the university. We also introduce students and parents to DePaul values and traditions through orientations, large-scale events and other types of programming.
