Why Live on Campus

There are many reasons to stay on campus at UIC.

LIVE SMART

  • A UIC freshman who lives on campus their first year is almost twice as likely to graduate in four years than a student who doesn’t live on campus.
  • Academic support and classes are right outside your door.  Campus Housing provides academic services such as free tutoring, Living Learning Communities (LLCs), and interaction with faculty outside of class.

LIVE CHEAPER

  • A four-year degree is cheaper than a five-year degree.  When you live on campus you are more likely to graduate on time.
  • We conveniently bill your account along with tuition and financial aid. Your utilities and laundry are included, so no trips to the laundromat.

LIVE TOGETHER

  • Living on campus makes it easy to make friends!
  • Learn to step out of your comfort zone to meet new people and make life-long friends.
  • We support you – we have an amazing network of resources within the University and plenty of programming and leadership opportunities for you to make the most of your college experience.

LIVE FREELY

  • Experience living on your own and independently in one of the best cities in the world!
  • Come and go as your please… plan your day how you want without the need for a hefty commute time!

LIVE SAFE

  • Building security and live-in staff are around to respond to needs around the clock.
  • If you have concerns, there is always someone to speak with or refer you as necessary.
