Residence Halls

Campus Housing offers residence hall locations on the east, south, and west sides of campus.  With eight residence halls and a variety of room types unique to each of those halls, there are many different styles for you to explore and find your best fit.

Housing Tours

Campus Housing offers tours daily, Monday – Saturday, of a Commons West-style room and of our Academic & Residential Complex (ARC) Model Room. Our Model Room is a space representative of a semi-suite double unit in the ARC, with the same furnishings, fixtures, and construction materials. This Model Room allows us to maximize occupancy in the ARC while showcasing the building to future residents.

These tours are offered:

  • Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10AM – 4PM
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30AM – 1PM
  • Saturdays from 9:30AM – 1PM

To take advantage of these daily tours, it is recommended that you take part in a UIC Admissions tour as these tours include Campus Housing while providing more information regarding admissions requirements, financial planning, and an overall UIC overview. To schedule a tour with UIC Admissions, visit their page here.

If you are looking only to tour Campus Housing, you can visit us during any of the above posted days/times at the following address. Upon arrival at the East Area Office (EAO), simply let the front desk staff know that you would like a tour of Campus Housing.

Tours of residence halls other than Commons West and the Academic & Residential Complex (ARC) may be available upon request, depending upon available vacancies.

Contact the Central Housing Office at housing@uic.edu with what building you are interested in seeing and a few dates and times that would work for tours. Again, we may not be able to meet your request due to current occupancy.

Due to staff scheduling we cannot offer same day tours.  Please contact us at least two weeks ahead of time so we can make necessary arrangements.
