DePaul University neither recommends nor advises against particular properties. 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.

All dining locations also accept cash and debit cards. Select dining locations are currently open in the Lincoln Park Student Center. However, dining will not be available on the Lincoln Park and Loop campuses for Summer 2021. Visit DePaul's Dining Services website for open locations and hours of operation.
