Commuter Services

Student Lounges

Finding space to relax or study between class is important.  DePaul offers a number of comfortable lounges and quiet study areas on both campuses and in several buildings.  

In the Loop campus, be sure to visit the Commuter Student Lounge on the 11th Floor (11027 of DePaul Center)!  This lounge is equipped with comfortable seating, lots of electric plug-ins for charging, study tables, and televisions.  The space is open 9a.m. to 7p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9a.m. to 5pm on Fridays during the academic year.

Student Resource Center

The Student Resource Center in the Loop (11th Floor Main Desk of DePaul Center) is a one-stop shop for resource referral, directions, off-campus housing questions, and more.  The desk also handles poster approvals, discount movie ticket sales, and promo tables in the Loop.  The desk is open 9a.m. to 7p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9a.m. to 5p.m. on Fridays in the academic year.  During summers and breaks, the desk is open 9a.m. to 5p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9a.m. to 3p.m. on Fridays.  You can call the Student Resource Center at 312-362-5411.

Off-Campus Housing


While DePaul University does not offer students assistance with finding off-campus housing or roommates, the university recently partnered with Off-Campus Partners to establish a DePaul off-campus housing website.  A number of resources can be found on that webpage to assist in your apartment search process.  

Students can also search online in the Chicago Reader, or get professional help from services like Apartment People in order to secure off-campus housing.
