Why DePaul - Loop Campus

The minute you set foot on the Loop Campus, you'll experience the energy of downtown Chicago. This campus is located in the heart of the city, home of Chicago's largest business district. It’s called "the Loop" because of the elevated train tracks that circle the area, allowing for easy access not only to classrooms but all that downtown has to offer. Walk among towering skyscrapers, catch the 'L' circling the Loop, hit pause on your headphones to hear some street music, and graze on fresh-baked donuts and empanadas from food trucks!
