Did you know a student who begins their academic career at UIC living on campus is almost twice as likely to graduate in four years than a student who doesn’t live on campus?


Campus Housing is home to students of all majors, backgrounds, interests, and academic class standing. Living on campus is optional, though the impact of your housing choice can be great.

Students can apply for Campus Housing once they are admitted to UIC. There is no deadline for applications, however, we do encourage interested students to apply as soon as they can if they have a specific residence hall preference, room type preference, or a  roommate request.
