DePaul University > About > Campuses > Lincoln Park Campus
DePaul’s Lincoln Park campus is just north of downtown Chicago and feels like a traditional university campus—quad and all.
Lincoln Park is home to a sprawling lakefront park and some of the best restaurants in the nation. The neighborhood is a live music hub, with jazz clubs and leading rock venues. You’ll also find some of the best local bookstores, boutiques and grub. Frankly, just about anything you want is right around the corner.
You can live in one of our 11 residence halls or in an apartment nearby. The library, student center, Brownstone’s coffee shop, Ray Meyer Fitness Center and community garden are just a handful of what you’ll find.
