DePaul University Library Closed due to Stay-at-Home Advisory

In light of Mayor Lightfoot’s Stay-at-Home-Advisory urging Chicagoans “to stay at home in response to the rapid rise of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the city…” and the recent announcement made by DePaul University administration announcing DePaul building closures and restrictions, the DePaul University Library will be physically closed now through the remainder of 2020. Contactless pickup and study/computing space reservations have been suspended until further notice.

Library users will continue to have access to digital content, including full-text articles, e-books and digital media titles including streaming audio and video. Research assistance will also remain available through our online Ask a Librarian service research guides and tutorials.  For a list of open computer labs, please visit

We are sorry for the disruption to services and will communicate updates when it has been determined it is safe to return to campus.

  1. Honestly, this is incredibly disappointing, our library was already following more than enough protocols for it to be safe. This is just another way the university fails to provide students with resources during this time. Many students are struggling to have a proper study space heading into finals. There is absolutely no way the library needs to be fully closed it is near impossible to contract c-void at the library with the precautions it had been taking.
