The CTA U-Pass provides unlimited rides on CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) bus/rail systems during an academic term. It's your transportation connection between home and class as well as all the neighborhoods and events Chicago has to offer. Full details regarding the U-Pass can be found on the DePaul U-Pass website.

How to Get Your U-Pass

All students meeting the requirements are automatically enrolled in the program. Eligible students are responsible for picking up their U-Pass. Failure to pick up the U-Pass does not eliminate the charge. Designated days and times for picking up your U-Pass will be sent to you as each new quarter approaches.

The College of Education no longer provides exemptions from the U-Pass program for the fall, winter and spring quarters. For summer quarters, the U-Pass is optional for all university students. To opt out for summer, visit the DePaul U-Pass website.
