Interim Housing

Interim Housing allows residential students to stay on campus in between academic terms. Students may request a late departure after finals, an early arrival before the start of a term, or need housing provided between the end of one term and the start of another. Although the cost of interim housing is included in contracts for SSR (fall-to-spring term) and continuing UIC Global students, residents who will stay on campus for all or part of the interim period should still apply.

Summer-to-Fall Interim Housing is from 12:00 pm on Saturday, August 8, 2020, through 12:00 pm (noon) Wednesday, August 19, 2020.

For fullest consideration, the preferred deadline to apply for an early arrival is August 1.

Following your application, please check your UIC email account for confirmation as the interim approval process is ongoing. If you need to cancel your interim application, please send an email to before the start of the interim period.
