How long does it take to get an apartment?

Once you have completed and submitted an application, your name will be placed on the wait list for all the buildings for which you indicated a preference. Since there is no way to anticipate how quickly vacancies will occur, there is no way to tell you exactly how long this process will take. However, we encourage you to apply since we tend to move quickly through the applications we have received.

All applications are reviewed for eligibility and applicants will be notified of their status by mail. Applicants will be asked to participate in at least two interviews. At the time of the interviews, DePaul Properties, Inc. will review your financial, credit, housing, criminal and employment histories. Please be aware that acceptance for our housing is based on all of these criteria.

Please see the General Rental and Occupancy Criteria Guidelines for additional information on how applicants are accepted for our housing.

All applications are thoroughly reviewed on a case-by-case basis. At no point in the application process are you guaranteed an apartment until you have signed a lease and received the keys.
