Student Housing and Dorms at DePaul University

You know, when I first came to DePaul I’m
not gonna lie — I was nervous about being in a whole city, leaving my family and stuff,
but making new friends, meeting new people, it’s made me adjust to the situation and made
everything so much easier. I would not have met so many people in the
first week if I didn’t live in the residence halls. They always say leave your door open, and
I recommend that because I actually met one of my best friends here. Like, I didn’t know Caitlin before we came
to DePaul and now we’re living together next year, so it was cool to get to meet each other. DePaul offers a lot of different options,
like if you want to community bathroom or suite style, or if you want three roommates,
two roommates, one roommate. It all depends. Yeah, like, you share a room but you still
have like your own bed, your own desk. There’s that freedom to just kind of be able
to do what you want, there’s not somebody telling you to clean your room (though you
should keep your room clean). Also laundry is free, and you will never not
pay for laundry until you buy a house. So that is really important. Yeah, I’m not sure what goes in whites, what should go in darks, so I have to call and she tells me…I haven’t screwed anything up–yet. And the RAs and the residence directors and
everyone, they’re so nice and they go out of their way to, like, make sure that everything
is safe and that we don’t have to worry about anything. We are super safe here: you have a swipe in,
you have another swipe in, you have someone always on the desk. My favorite part about living in the residence
halls is that I have a kitchen because then I can cook all my frozen meals in my microwave. Knowing that I’m five minutes away from every
building is really nice. I can leave five minutes before my class and
make it there. Everything is so close, my classes are close,
the El is really close. Free U-Pass comes with tuition, so. Free U-Pass! I go out there and throw football with friends,
or if there’s a mechanical bull right in the middle of the quad, you go ride the mechanical
bull for a couple dollars! Going to school in Chicago is — you’ll never
have another experience like it. You’re never bored! There’s literally always something to do.
