Commuter Services

Nearly 90 percent of DePaul University's total student population commutes or lives off campus. By working closely with other university offices and partners, the Office of Commuter Student Affairs​ offers information and resources that encourages off-campus students to be involved and engaged in campus life. Learn more by contacting Commuter Student Affairs​.

Getting to Campus

Our four campuses are easy to get to by car or public transportation. Information on routes and other mass transit services can be found at transitchicago.com, metrarail.com, and rtachicago.com.

CTA U-PASS

The Office of Commuter Student Affairs works in collaboration with other DePaul University administrators on DePaul University's participation in the CTA U-Pass program. For more information, please visit the U-Pass website.

Off-Campus Housing

Renting

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.  Commuter Student Affairs has also compiled the Off-Campus Guide as a resource for students who are interested in living off campus.

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