If you are moving out of your assignment in the Residence Halls, Rector Village or in the University-Owned Apartments and Houses, it is important to keep in mind that your living space needs to be returned to the condition that it was found upon your check-in.

It is common for students to face a variety of challenges - academic, personal, spiritual, and emotional - during their time on campus. The CARE (Concern, Assessment, Response, Evaluation) Team assists students directly and helps the DePauw community as they support students who may be facing difficult situations, working through an unusually hard time, or whose behavior may be of concern to others.
