DePaul University combines the advantages and resources of a large private university with the student-focused attention of a smaller institution, all within one of America’s greatest cities.
Founded in 1898, DePaul’s 2 campuses in the heart of Chicago offer students a wealth of learning and work placement opportunities. The University immerses students in the city, connecting them through innovative courses; internship opportunities at Fortune 500 companies; and service-learning programs that provide meaningful assistance to local communities. The city’s extensive public transportation system allows students to take advantage of the incredible culture, sports and dining options.
As the largest Catholic university in the USA, DePaul is also widely known for welcoming students from all ethnicities, religions and backgrounds. And even with its large enrollment, it has a student-to-faculty ratio of just 17:1, with an average class size of under 40 students.
