Seeking Volunteers - Join the Flames Welcome Crew Today!
Our Flames Welcome Crew consists of volunteers, primarily students, that assist our new residents into Campus Housing. These volunteers help direct arriving students, assist in the unload and deliver personal belongings from arriving vehicles to resident rooms, and answer or refer questions.
The atmosphere our Flames Welcome Crew creates is one of excitement and inclusion into the UIC campus community. The assistance our Flames Welcome Crew offers is so greatly appreciated and has become a traditional aspect to the start of the UIC academic year.
Benefits to being a part of our Flames Welcome Crew including:
- Volunteer hours are tracked by Campus Housing and documentation is available upon request
- Any continuing residents that volunteer as part of Flames Welcome Crew are invited to move into Campus Housing early to attend training
- A Flames Welcome Crew t-shirt

The Academic and Residential Complex - opening Fall 2019
The University of Illinois at Chicago’s newest student housing community will be one of the leading edge mixed-use, live-learn student communities in the country, housing more than 550 students on the UIC campus. This project is a response to UIC’s record-setting Fall 2017 enrollment and reinforces the current growth strategy to support the recruitment, retention, and graduation of its students.
The community is being developed in partnership with American Campus Communities, with designs by Solomon Cordwell Buenz and general contractor Pepper/Brown Construction Company.
