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

Students can apply for housing as soon as they are accepted to UIC! There is not a deadline for applications, however,  we do encourage students to apply as soon as they can if they have a specific building and/or room preference or a  roommate request.

Room Assignment Process

  • Assignments are made in a rolling fashion based on the date we receive the application fee. Building and room preferences are subject to availability, based on your Campus Housing application date.
  • Contracts for housing assignments for fall 2020 will begin to be sent out in mid-June through early July. Once your contract has been issued, you will go online to e-sign your contract and pay your $100 (refundable) security deposit.
  • Contracts are continually sent out on a rolling basis after the initial contracts are sent.
  • Receipt of application by the Campus Housing Office (or the date of a student’s admission to UIC, whichever is later) determines priority date for assignments.

You can change your preferences at any time until you receive your contract.  Visit MyContract to make changes to your application.
