On-Campus Housing Options for Conferences, Interns, Guests, and Medical Student Rotation

Campus Housing offers the same safe, affordable, and comfortable housing options available to our students to many other individuals and groups looking for housing in the city of Chicago. Please explore our options available below to see what fits you or your group’s needs.

UIC Guest Housing is temporary housing, available in Single Student Residence (SSR). SSR is a fully furnished, air-conditioned high-rise building that UIC medical students and graduate students call home.

  • SSR is conveniently located in the Illinois Medical District, three blocks from the UIC Medical Center and Rush University Medical Center, and across the street from the West Side VA Hospital and John Stroger County Hospital.
  • With UIC being centrally located near the heart of Chicago, during your visit with us we encourage you to explore Chicago and everything it has to offer.

Cancellation Policy

To cancel a reservation, written notice is required to UIC prior to occupancy. If notice of cancel­lation is received after a guest moves in, a refund for the number of unused nights minus a $25.00 administration charge will be assessed.

If the guest does not check in within three days of their scheduled arrival and has not given prior written notice of their late arrival to Housing, their housing reservation will be canceled. If payment has already been received by the University, the refund process, including a $25 administrative charge, will begin starting from the 4th day of the scheduled reservation.

If the guest vacates the room prior to the end of the scheduled stay without submitting a cancellation request to UIC Campus Housing and checking out and returning their keys at the residence hall desk, they will not receive a refund.
