The fall will be a time when we can interact and engage with each other in person, and continue to take advantage of what we've found to be effective in the remote environment. Our student support services will be open on campus with options to get assistance both in person and online to help students in any way that they can.

Sudents should determine what is most important to them in off-campus housing (neighborhood, price, safety, proximity to other college students, etc.), and then research and visit various properties that align with their goals. Make sure to visit several properties for comparison purposes. You can learn more on DePaul’s off-campus housing website​.​
