Campus Housing: It's expensive living off of campus.

Campus Housing: The dorms themselves are pretty average, and the atmosphere created among the residents is pretty bad.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus can be a good experience if you are well known and social. Their are many things going on while living on campus. Many students come up with different activities that include other students like clubs, games, groups, etc. Sometimes attending events and enjoying that social experience can get a bit expensive. If a student stays on a budget, and balances everything out they would not always be broke. Most of the time this is a big problem for students, which leave them in a broke situation.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have never really had any significantly negative experiences with DePaul Housing, however, security has recently been a concern for me. There was an incident where my friend was physically assaulted in a DePaul affiliated apartment living area and there were no reports given to residents living in that building. This was very concerning to me to hear because safety is an extremely important issue for students especially living in a city like Chicago.

The dorms at DePaul are extremely nice. While they're pretty expensive, students definitely get what they pay for in most cases. Many of the dorms are fairly new, and all are very well maintained. And, since DePaul is such as small campus, you’ll never be more than 10 minutes from anything on campus, no matter what dorm you live in. The dorms are also very secure. Residents must scan their ID to get into the lobby of each dorm, and then must swipe it again to access the main staircase and elevators leading to the dorm rooms. There's also a 24-hour security guard—a very important safety measure when living in Chicago. The resident advisers are usually very friendly and involved, and there are a variety of activities for dorm residents. Overall, the experience of living on campus is essential for first-year students at DePaul because nearly all dorm residents are freshmen. Living on campus is a great way to make friends freshman year because everyone is in the same boat.

Campus housing is not available to upperclassmen, and while it's offered to sophomores, most students move off campus after freshman year. Living in an apartment with two or three roommates is about the same price as living on campus but offers more independence. Also, less than a block from campus is 1237 West, a student apartment building that houses students from DePaul, as well a few from other accredited universities in the Chicago area. This complex is a good step between living on campus and renting a "real" apartment because it will accept financial aid, there's a 24-hour security guard, and all units come furnished.

  • 1237 West is only a block from DePaul's campus and offers apartment living for all students-undergraduate and graduate. This six-floor building offers one- to four-bedroom apartments that offer private bathrooms, a living room, kitchen, and coat rack. The building is decorated in a contemporary style, and offers everything from flat-screen televisions, ping-pong, and a Wii in the lobby for the residents. The door is guarded by a 24-hour security team. Guest policy is more relaxed compared to the University standards. For students looking to live comfortably in a safe environment off campus, 1237 west is a great option.
  • University Center of Chicago houses students from DePaul's Loop Campus, Colombia College, and Roosevelt University. It offers dorm-style or apartment-style living, in addition to a food court, workout room, and rooftop garden.
  • Vincent and Louise House is across the street from the Lincoln Park Student Center and provides 10 service-dedicated students with a community-living option. These students dedicate a year to community service and commit to simple-living habits.
