Seeking Roommates - University Housing Apartments

Welcome to the University of Illinois Family & Graduate Housing Roommate Bulletin Board. This communication tool is provided as a service to new and current University Housing Apartment residents seeking a roommate (co-tenant) within the Family & Graduate Housing (FGH) apartment communities. Roommates must be affiliated with the University of Illinois, each have their own University Apartment lease, and live in a two-bedroom apartment at the Orchard Downs or Ashton Woods apartment complex. We cannot publish posts for non-University owned properties.  Posts are reviewed within 5 to 7 days of submission and if approved, then published at this site.  Posts are deleted from this site after 60 days.

Roommates are allowed to have one dependent live with them if they are sharing a two-bedroom apartment with a roommate.  We do require that anyone who will be living with a dependent provide this information in their post.

When creating a new posting, please use the following examples as a guide:

"Female graduate student with 3 year old child seeking roommate in Orchard Downs beginning August 2017. Willing to share with male or female roommate. Please email Qian." -OR-

"Single male undergraduate transfer student (Junior) with no dependents seeking single male roommate with no dependents in Ashton Woods for 2016-2017 academic year. Please email Paulo."

"Single female Visiting Scholar seeking female roommate with no dependents in Orchard Downs or Orchard South from July 2016 to July 2017. Prefer furnished apartment. Please email Mary."

Do not include your full name, address, or any personal information. This board is able to be viewed by anyone in the world. Posts are approved by Housing staff before they will appear on the board. Posts that do not meet the guidelines will be edited or deleted with no notice. Family & Graduate Housing assumes no liability for any posts or replies.
