When meeting participants come to DePaul, they leave the daily work environment behind and enter a setting conducive to a serious intellectual effort. There's really no better place than a university to share knowledge, discuss issues and learn new information. And space is available at a cost well below the current hotel and conference center rates.
Conference Services is ready to meet your meeting or conference needs on the Loop campus with technologically advanced classrooms and meeting rooms. You can select from a variety of seating arrangements. A full range of audiovisual equipment including video conferencing capabilities is available upon request. We offer complete catering services, as well as coffee, soft drink and snack vending machines at each site.
In the Loop, you can choose from several locations in the DePaul Center, Lewis Center, or CDM building. Facilities are available for rental from 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and on a limited basis Saturday and Sunday.
All DePaul facilities are non-smoking.
Open flame candles are not to be used in any facility. Well-enclosed tea light candles or votives must be approved by the coordinator.

Event Postings and Announcements
To advertise on the 1st floor of the DePaul Center for any event or program occurring in the DePaul Center, submit an 8.5 x 11 flyer to the Loop Student Center/Conference Service office, Suite 8003 (8th floor of DePaul Center). On the day of the event, the flyer will be posted in the university-designated event and publicity board located in the 1st floor lobby of the DePaul Center. Space availability may be limited.
You may also submit a request to advertise your event via the digital signs located in the DePaul Center.
The Office of Student Life will have a table and/or easel on the 1st floor of the DePaul Center to advertise programs of interest to students occurring on the 11th floor. This is done only for the day of the event.
Advertising or directional signs for events or programs are not otherwise allowed on the 1st floor of the DePaul Center. This includes items taped to surfaces or floor displays. Postings like these will be removed.
Deliveries and Pick-Ups
Deliveries and pick-ups must be scheduled with Conference Services to arrive and re-ship on the same day of the event due to lack of storage space. Clients that require reverse delivery of materials must provide our office with prepaid, completed, mailing labels. Our office will call the appropriate carrier for pick-up.
Large bulk shipments: Dock area accessibility hours are 7:00 am – 3:00 pm, Monday - Friday. Clients using messenger services for material shipments to DePaul University must have messenger service deliver shipments directly to the Conference Services office.
Audio Visual Services
For audio-visual requirements, sponsors must fill out the Classroom Technology Request Form and return it to the Conference Services office.
Sponsors requiring a specific meeting room set-up must enclose this information with the agreement or fax the Room Set-up Guide to the Conference Services office no later than three days prior to the event.
Conference/classroom can be secured for breaks and lunch. Either contact Conference Services or Public Safety. Public Safety can be reached on extension 2-8400 at any on-campus phone.
Several rooms are equipped for teleconferencing. A $100.00 connection fee will be charged.
DePaul reserves the right to reassign events into comparable rooms.
