you will receive housing if you're on the waitlist, I can almost guarantee it
This is the downtown housing option. I don't recommend it if you plan on getting involved in the life of Lincoln Park because it really is a far trek to make everyday. Plus you would be living with kids from other schools which just makes you feel disconnected from DePaul.

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.
