Computer Labs and Classrooms
There are many technology-enabled classrooms across the DePaul campuses. Technology resources in these rooms include desktop computers, LCD projectors, connections for laptops, and integrated, amplified sound systems. Specialty rooms exist across the university for classes with specific needs, and additional technology is available upon request.
DePaul also has computers available for use by students, faculty or staff, located in computer labs, lounges and lobbies across the campuses. Additional technology access is available to residence hall students; each residence hall is outfitted with study lounges allowing for student access to computers and printers at any time.
Your CTA U-Pass provides unlimited rides on the CTA bus and rail systems during an academic term. It also functions as a Ventra card, allowing you to add funds to be used during university breaks. All students meeting the requirements are automatically enrolled in the program. If your eligibility changes before the last day to drop courses, your U-Pass will be adjusted accordingly.
U-Pass pick-up dates are held at the beginning of each quarter. Students must pick up CTA U-PASS cards in person, by presenting a valid DePaul ID Card. Your Ventra U-Pass is valid for 5 years. It will be deactivated and reactivated each quarter based on your enrollment. Do not discard your U-Pass, or you will be assessed a fee by the CTA for a replacement card.
Full details regarding the U-Pass can be found on the DePaul U-Pass website http://upass.depaul.edu/.
DePaul ID Card
Your DePaul ID Card serves as your identification to enable access to various DePaul buildings, computer labs, printers, and libraries and is used to purchase items using your Demon Express account and meal plan. You must have your ID Card on hand while on campus. New students receive their ID Card at student orientation. Students can also visit ID Services to obtain an ID card.
