Full Time Staff

Thank you for your interest in joining our team at UIC! We encourage you to learn more about our position(s), department, and campus community to find if UIC is the best fit for where you'd like to call home! Go Flames!

The University of Illinois at Chicago provides a world-class education in a world-class city. As the largest institution of higher learning in the Chicago area, with more than 25,000 students, 3,800 of whom live on campus, UIC embodies a large, diverse urban institution. The UIC campus is located just west of Chicago's loop, integrated into historic residential neighborhoods and the urban environment. Having nearly doubled in size in the past ten years, the comprehensive Campus Housing department seeks to develop students both in and out of the classroom through active student involvement in the university's mission. We strive to insure that campus residency offers students an educational advantage, which engages students in their own learning and contributes to their overall success.

Employee Benefits

Insurance (Health, Life, Liability, Vision, Dental, Flexible Spending Account)
By state law, the State of Illinois provides group life insurance (equal to the employee’s annual salary), as well as health, vision, liability, and dental insurance to all academic staff members who have an appointment of 100% time for a period expected to be at least nine consecutive months. Employees also have the option of contributing to a pre-tax health flexible spending account for themselves or their dependents.

Paid Holidays (7 actual, 4 floating) Vacation (24 days)
Campus Housing staff receive seven University holidays, plus an additional four floating holidays. Full-time staff members appointed on a twelve-month basis receive twenty-four work days of paid vacation per appointment year. Vacation may be accumulated to a maximum of forty-eight work days.

Sick Leave
Twelve work days of sick leave are available each appointed year. If 12 sick days are used, as many as 13 additional sick days are available in that appointment year. These 13 days are not cumulative.

Contributions of 8 percent are deducted from the employee’s earnings and placed in the State Universities Retirement System (SURS) in lieu of Social Security contributions. An employee who terminates employment may elect to receive a refund of the employee’s total contribution of 8 percent of earnings, plus interest at a rate not to exceed 4.5 percent compounded annually. The employee contributions are picked up by the employer and treated as employer contributions for income-tax withholding purposes. Retirement contributions are based on the gross earnings before the employer contributions are included in earnings.

Domestic Partners Policy for Live-In Staff
For those employees who live on campus, accommodations will be made for partners in the same manner currently afforded a spouse. Any dependents of either partner will be recognized by Campus Housing in the same manner as the current practice for married couples. The University offers a Domestic Partners benefit program as well, including health insurance.
