Housing at UIC is safe, affordable, and comfortable as well as being centrally located near the heart of the city. UIC Campus Housing offers many housing options to fit your housing needs.
Here at UIC, we offer both single and double occupancy rooms in air-conditioned residence halls throughout our east, south, and west sides of campus.
Our facilities offer:
- traditional-style rooms with a community bathroom on each floor
- cluster-style rooms are a combination of single and double occupancy units which share a small cluster bathroom within their own private suite
- suite style is the same as a cluster with the addition of a shared living space
- apartment-style units provide everyone with their own private bedroom, sharing the common spaces within the unit
Each room is equipped with a twin bed, desk, and chair for each participant. Wheelchair accessible rooms are also available upon request. For more information on our various residence halls, explore our website further in order to view photos of the different buildings and housing options we have available to offer.
Individual rooms are cleaned prior to a group’s arrival. It is the responsibility of all conference guests to keep the units cleaned. However, our housekeeping staff perform daily cleaning of public areas and community bathrooms.
