Housing & Residentiality

By living on campus, DePauw students engage in diverse communities that foster learning with & from others

Our residential experience is progressive by class year with different types of living communities that complement students' in-class learning. Immersion within these inclusive communities enhances each student's intellectual exploration and personal development, linking liberal arts education with life's work. Students have the choice of increasing their level of autonomy and responsibility as they move through their DePauw career.  Rather than focusing on where you live, our housing places an emphasis on who you live with and how you learn together.

Fall 2020 Move-out Protocols and Procedures


There is no need to schedule your move-out. A checklist will be provided to students on what is expected during the move-out process. Students who are not able to move out on November 20 by 6 pm and have not been provided an approved extension by Housing and Residence Life will be charged a late move out fee of $50.00 for the first hour and $25.00 for every hour thereafter.

Move-out Helpers.

Students are only allowed to have two (2) helpers during the move-out process. Your helpers are not allowed in the residential facility (Residence Halls, University Owned Apartments and Houses, or Rector Village). Please make sure your helpers are wearing masks at all times and are symptom-free before their arrival on campus. If you need help moving out of your residential facility (Residence Halls, University Owned Apartments and Houses, or Rector Village), other current resident or commuter students may help you.

Packing and vacating your assigned room.

Students must completely pack and move out of their assigned location. Please clean and empty trash. Your room must look as it did when you first arrived for move-in. The University will charge for damages and excessive cleaning if necessary. 

Cleaning checklist can be found at the following locations:


Campus storage units are available on a first-come, first-served basis for students who live more than 500 miles from campus. If you need campus storage, please contact the Housing and Residence Life Office as soon as possible at 765-658-4500, availability of storage units are limited. 

Check-out Process

  • After 4:30 pm, please take your key to the key drop-box located at DePauw Police at 101 East Seminary Street on the lower level.

Students who have received an approval to remain on campus will receive an email from Housing and Residence Life with further instructions.  All students should be packed and ready to relocate by November 23rd.  Additional information is forthcoming.
