The new DePaul University Wintrust Arena is in the works! The stadium construction is almost finished with the first home game set for November 11.

Wintrust Arena will seat more than 10,000 people and will be the cornerstone of “The Collection at McCormick Square,” located next to McCormick Center. This new home court for DePaul Athletics will also host events including concerts, theatrical shows, commencement ceremonies, industry conventions and athletic events ranging from professional, NCAA and high school championships.

We’re proud to be “DePaul’s Bank,” and we’re the new kids on campus with two branch locations. The temporary location at 333 South State St., inside the DePaul Center, will be utilized until the permanent branch buildout at 247 South State St. is completed in late 2017. The other branch is located inside the DePaul Student Center at 2250 North Sheffield Ave. This is a limited services location aimed at assisting students, and does not offer teller transactions. You can also show your school pride with our customized DePaul debit card and DePaul Checking Account for students, faculty, staff and alumni. Go Blue Demons!

Our bank staff has been busy preparing for school by participating in new student and transfer orientation sessions. We were a proud sponsor of the parent lounge at summer sessions and provided co-branded promotional items for students. As the one-stop-shop on campus, we’re here to help the DePaul community with any financial needs or questions they have, including setting up online account creation.  

It’s who we are to get out and get involved, and we couldn’t be happier to a part of DePaul’s service for others. Several outreach programs and events with Chicago Public Schools we have planned include Wintrust Reads, Wintrust Blankets, Wintrust Field Trips and Score Big. Chicago is our community too, and we couldn’t be more honored to give back to the people who make this city great. 

This new arena solidifies our partnership with DePaul University as well as with the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority (MPEA) who owns McCormick Place and the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place. Together we’re proud to support growth in the South Loop, incorporate students and sports, residents and tourists, and most importantly, foster community and economic development. 

We can’t wait for you to experience Wintrust Arena this season!
