Life after 55 East: Where did everybody go?

Last summer, several DePaul departments began moving out of offices at 55 East Jackson Blvd., with personnel resettling into other on-campus facilities.

Moving into spaces DePaul owns and out of those leased from others allows the university to save approximately $4 million in overhead costs annually. The changes involved 158,000 square feet of administrative space at the 55 East location and affected 426 staff and faculty in 19 departments. Facility Operations is grateful for the grace and patience shown by the university community during this time.

With the dust beginning to settle, an update of where university departments are now headquartered may be timely. Most administrative offices are now at the Daley Building at 14 East Jackson. The Offices of the President, Provost and Executive Vice President are on the 18th floor, the Office of Advancement is on the 17th floor, Financial Affairs and Information Services are located on the 15th floor, and University Marketing and Communications is on the 13th floor. You can always contact Facility Operations to locate an office or department.

Please note that calling or messaging ahead could avoid an unsuccessful face-to-face visit, as employees in a given department may follow a hybrid schedule.

Thank you to the entire university community for your efforts and contributions in bringi​ng this necessary project to a successful conclusion.
