Fall 2019

All freshman and transfer students new to UIC Campus Housing are encouraged to move in on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 between the hours of 8AM and 4PM. Returning residents can move in between 8AM and 4PM on Thursday, August 22 through Sunday, August 25.

New residents that have moved in on August 21 will take part in floor meetings at 4PM. These meetings are an opportunity to meet our live-in Residence Life, as well as neighboring students that live on your floor/hall.

Monday, August 26, is the first day of classes for Fall semester.

If you are planning to arrive before Wednesday, August 21, please sign up for interim housing. Residents will pay a small per-night fee for interim housing. If you have not signed up for interim housing, please note that your space will not be ready for you to move in if you arrive prior to Wednesday, August 21.

If you are unable to move in prior to Monday, August 26, please contact the Housing Office ( so that your late arrival will not be mistaken for a change in your housing plans.

Sign Up for a Move-In Time

We ask that all residents, both new and returning, sign up for a move-in time. This allows us to allocate our staff, resources, and volunteers (Flames Welcome Crew) in a manner to best assist residents moving in.

Please visit the following link to our Housing Dock to sign up for a move-in time.
