We're here to help you in shaping your experience at DePauw

Campus Living and Community Development has a variety of resources to assist you in your time living with us. Please check out the resources below or the additional links to the left for more information.

End-of-Year Closing Information

In just a few weeks, DePauw's residence halls and Rector Village will be closing for the summer.

  • The Residence Halls and Rector Village will close at 6 PM on Thursday, May 15th.

  • Apartments and Houses will close at 11 a.m. on Monday, May 19.

Students living in the Residence Halls and Rector Village may apply for an extension until 9:00 AM on Friday, May 16th. There are no extensions available for students in apartments and houses.  An extension request form has been made available through our Residence web page: for those living in Rector Village or in one of the residence halls. Please note that extension requests will be reviewed and are only for students with unique travel circumstances. Seniors and other students participating in commencement will be granted automatic extensions and do not need to apply. Please e-mail if you have extenuating travel circumstances and cannot leave by 9 a.m. on Friday.

For now, we ask that you please work now to ensure that your travel plans are made according to our closing schedule. In addition, we encourage you to begin whatever work you need to do to return your room to the condition in which you found it.

Summer Housing

Summer housing is available to a limited number of students between May 27 - August 2, 2014.

Summer students participating in pre-approved programs will be housed in duplexes. Eligible individuals must be enrolled as a DePauw student for the 2014-2015 year, or be a 2014 DePauw graduate. Eligible students must be conducting research in an approved program with a faculty member, or be an academic research guest of the institution, or be employed by the University during the summer of 2014.

Students must register for a minimum of two weeks.

  • Duplex housing: Students will be charged $40.00 per week, inclusive of laundry.
  • Cleaning Fee: Students will be charged a one time $50.00 fee for cleaning.
  • Billing will be in one-week increments. The weekly fee will not be pro-rated for students staying less than the full week. Final billing will be based on the date the student checks in and the date that all items are removed and keys are returned to the Campus Living and Community Development Office.
  •  All billing will be submitted to the student account of the individual unless otherwise determined by the summer research program or work supervisor.

If you have any questions regarding summer housing, please contact Campus Living and Community Development at x4500 or

Storage Information

DePauw University has a limited number of storage boxes available for rent to students who meet one of the following criteria:

  • Renters must be a current and continuing student at DePauw. (Withdrawn or students on Leave of Absence are not eligible)
  • Renters must have lived or be living in University owned housing (i.e. residence halls, UOAH, NOT Greek chapter houses) in at least one of the adjacent semesters.
  • Renters must be away from campus (studying abroad, internship, at home) during the period of storage rental.
  • Renters must live at least 500 miles from Greencastle.
  •  After the last day of classes, any remaining storage units will be available on a first come-first served basis to any student who meets the above criteria but lives less than 500 miles from campus.

Campus Living & Community Development will begin taking reservations following spring break. Upon signing a contract in the CLCD office in Anderson Street Hall other rules and restrictions will be discussed with you.
