DePaul will be taking several steps that will further reduce the number of people on campus at a time when COVID-19 is spreading more rapidly. All current face-to-face courses and final exams would be moved online for the remainder of the fall term, starting Monday, Nov. 16. See all updates for campus buildings and computer lab access

In an email sent on October 5, 2020, DePaul announced the following plans for winter quarter 2021:

  • DePaul’s winter term will look similar to fall with the majority of courses and student services being offered online.
  • Residence hall occupancy will be slightly expanded from its current level. Students will continue to live in single-occupancy rooms.
