DePaul students rarely return to the dorms after freshman year because off-campus apartments are cheaper, more convenient, and much more fun than living in the dorms. Living off campus provides an aspect of independence you just can’t at a school where students stay in the dorms all four years. It also provides DePaul students with more “real world” experience than their peers who attend more “residential” schools.
Most students view the responsibility of rent and various monthly bills as a tradeoff to not having to return to their hometowns every winter and summer break. Plus, living off campus means not having to deal with the rules and policies common in the dorms. Off-campus housing is very easy to find, and while most students end up looking for places May through August, it’s not impossible to find a lease that starts any month of the year. There is a lot of variety in the size and quality of apartments, especially if you are willing to look in the neighborhoods that surround Lincoln Park, instead of just Lincoln Park itself.
