The Theatre School building located at 2350 N Racine Avenue in Chicago is our artistic home and used for classes, rehearsals, and productions.

Each video's description provides additional information about how the space is used and a link to the next stop on the tour.

DePaul University is located in Chicago and is split between two campuses: the Lincoln Park Campus and the Loop Campus. Each one of DePaul University's ten colleges is located primarily on one campus or the other. The Theatre School is located on the west end of the Lincoln Park Campus. Housing is available on both campuses, if you choose to live on-campus. Students use Chicago's public transit system (the CTA) to navigate between campuses, commute to/from off-campus housing, travel to internship sites, and explore the city.
