COMMUNITY KITCHENS – Kitchens are provided in all campus housing for resident use. A stove/oven, microwave oven, sink and refrigerator or mini-fridge are usually pro- vided in community kitchens. Residents using any kitchen facilities must not leave the facility while cooking and are responsible for ensuring that all safety precautions are fol- lowed. The university is not responsible for replacement of or personal harm that results from food spoiled due to damage or normal wear and tear of kitchen appliances. Residents are responsible for cleaning their dishes, pots, pans and the area immediately after use. Hall staff may dispose of food left unattended and throw out dirty dishes, pots and pans left in community areas.
ELEVATORS – The following halls offer elevators for
day-to-day student use: Belden-Racine Hall, Centennial Hall, Clifton-Fullerton Hall, McCabe Hall, Munroe Hall and Sanctuary Hall. University Hall and Seton Hall have freight elevators that are only available during set times for use during autumn quarter move-in and spring quarter move-out.
EVENTS – All events that take place within campus housing or outside in surrounding areas must be approved 48 hours in advance by the Residence Director or Assistant Residence Director in the building or location where the event is to be held.
FRONT DESKS – All traditional residence halls, McCabe Hall and Sanctuary Hall (including the Townhomes) have 24-hour front desk security operations. All hall front desks are staffed by student employee Desk Receptionists from 8 a.m. until midnight and by professional security staff from midnight until 8 a.m.
LAUNDRY – Coin- and card-operated high-efficiency washing machines and dryers are located throughout campus housing. High-efficiency washing machines require less soap than a standard washing machine. Most campus laundry rooms also feature extra large–capacity washers and dryers. Residents encountering difficulties with these machines, including needing refunds for lost money in the laundry machines or damaged clothing, should contact Automatic Apartment Laundries via the number in each laundry room (1-800-521-9938). Hall staff may dispose of laundry or personal items left in a laundry room for more than 24 hours.
MAIL – All residents on campus can pick up their mail keys in the Student Housing Mail Center. The Mail Center is located in Room 317 of the Lincoln Park Student Center. Residents should see the mailroom staff to turn in their mailbox keys, both for midyear changes and at the end of the year. Failure to return your mail key when checking out of housing will result in a charge.
NOISE – Residents are not permitted to make noise that disturbs others or to exhibit disorderly conduct (as defined by the Code of Student Responsibility) within campus housing. Courtesy hours are in effect 24 hours a day. All
residents are expected to confront any noise problems that are of concern to them and to respond politely if asked to be quiet. If assistance is needed, a resident may call upon Residential Education staff or Public Safety.
POSTING – Student organizations are required to follow all proper procedures for posting in campus housing. All organizations wishing to post in residence halls must first get approval from the Department of Residential Education. For more information, please visit Residential Education’s website: studentaffairs.depaul.edu/resed
QUIET HOURS – Minimum quiet hours are scheduled from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m., Sunday through Thursday, and from midnight to 9 a.m., Friday and Saturday. During quiet hours, noise should not be heard beyond the closed door of a resident’s room. Quiet hours are 24 hours a day beginning the day before the first day of any final exam period and continuing through the remainder of the quarter.
RECYCLING – Each residence hall unit is equipped with one 7-gallon recycling bin. Residents are responsible for emptying these individual bins into the larger recycling con- tainers located in each residence hall (typically near trash rooms or in lobby or lounge areas) and in other campus buildings. In Vicent and Louise House, Sheffield Square and Sanctuary Townhomes, residents must take their recycling outside to the nearest blue recycling bin, typically located near the trash bins. DePaul University’s janitorial staff will pick up both trash and recyclable items commingled (waste is bagged in brown or black bags, and recycling is bagged in clear containers). Recycling materials and trash will be separated outside the residence halls into separate recy- cling and trash dumpsters. Commingled recyclable items will be separated and sorted at Allied Waste’s sorting facil- ity. The following is a non-exhaustive list of items that can be recycled: clean and dry paper products (white and color paper, envelopes, junk mail, magazines, newspapers, etc.),aluminum or metal cans, and plastic water bottles and all numbered plastic containers (except for #6).
