Many students choose to live in the residence halls for a second year. In fact, 29% of residents live with University Housing for more than one year.
Convenient and accommodating, University Housing has room options all over campus including suites and singles, communities that are exclusively for students who are sophomores and above, halls with kitchens that don’t require a meal plan, and even apartments. Studying abroad or student teaching? Students who live with us can be released from their housing contract after one semester without worrying about subletting.
Instead of worrying about grocery bills, monthly utilities, or finding time to cook and clean, on-campus living means all the “heavy lifting” is taken care of. They’ll find services such as 24/7 in-hall staff; around-the-clock maintenance; access to computer labs, on-site libraries, and fitness rooms; and locations within walking distance from academic buildings. There’s always fresh and convenient food ready to go — without cleanup — at multiple dining locations. Plus, everything they need is included in one bill per semester — even laundry is included!
All this adds up to more time for your student to focus on living their best Illinois experience.
And with things feeling a little uncertain right now; we're providing the utmost flexibility and extending our cancellation policy.
