Campus Housing: The Right Place to Call Home

Fall 2023 Move-In Details and Information

Selecting a Move-In Time

All residents, both new and returning, will need to select a specific Move-In Time this Fall 2023.

Residents with a room assignment for the 2023-2024 academic year will be able to sign up for a Move-In Time after July 17, 2023. If you have not yet selected a room assignment and signed your Housing contract for the 2023-2024 academic year, you will not be able to select a Move-In Time.

We recommend that residents consider any travel, transportation, and guest assistance plans prior to selecting your Move-In Time. The Move-In Time selection tool does allow residents to cancel and select a new Move-In Time, if necessary. However, a new Move-In Time cannot be requested for less than 24 hours notice.

Having a specific Move-In Time for each resident allows us to allocate our staff and resources in a manner to best assist residents during their Move-In. Time slots are also structured to reduce congestion.

Important: arriving at a time other than your assigned Move-In Time (or not signing up for a Move-In Time) will result in a lengthy delay as we prioritize assistance to scheduled residents. No exceptions will be made to this process.

What day is Move-In?

Move-In takes place over a number of days between Wednesday, August 16, and Sunday, August 20. Residents will be need to select a Move-In Time and date that match their status as either a new or returning Campus Housing resident.

If you are arriving prior to Move-In Days of August 16-20, you should not select a Move-In Time. 

  • New Campus Housing residents, including transfer students, may select a Move-In Time on Wednesday, August 16 or Thursday, August 17.
  • Returning Campus Housing residents are welcome to Move-In on Friday, August 18, through Sunday, August 20

Residents with a room assignment for the 2023-2024 academic year will be able to sign up for a Move-In Time after July 17, 2023.

Guests Assisting with Move-In

Campus Housing defines guests as any individual that is not a roommate of the assigned resident. This includes family members or friends as well as students that reside in a residence hall location different than the hosting resident.

All guests must be escorted by and in the presence of the resident hosting them while in the residence hall. Guests must have a govt. or state-issued photo ID on them.

Summer-to-Fall Interim Housing is from 12PM on Saturday, August 5, 2023, to 12PM on Wednesday, August 16, 2023.

Only residents with an active Summer 2023 Housing assignment are eligible for the Interim Housing period between the Summer 2023 and Fall 2023 terms.

Fall 2023 Housing residents that are not current Summer 2023 residents will not be able to move into Campus Housing earlier than Move-In Days of August 16-20, unless they are part of an approved early arrival group or have an academic class or purpose that starts prior to August 16.

Summer 2023 Housing residents will automatically have the Summer-to-Fall Interim Housing assignment and rate added to their student account, unless they opt out and move all personal belongings out of their Summer 2023 assignment by 12PM on August 5 at the end of their Summer term contract.

In Memory of Jozmon Wilson Heading link

Over the upcoming Move-In Days, you may notice Campus Housing staff wearing shirts that say I’ve Got Ya on the back. These shirts are in memory and the spirit of Jozmon Wilson.
Jozmon, affectionately known as “Jay,” had a 22-year history with UIC as an employee – beginning as an Extra Help worker and climbing the ladder to his role as Assistant Director of Facilities. He dedicated his career to ensuring that Housing residents had a comfortable and functional place to call home on campus.
Those who knew Jay or interacted with him recognize that he was an extraordinary person. Selflessly putting others before himself, lending a hand wherever needed, and setting the tone for our team with his work ethic. Jay was a strong leader that lifted our entire team to meet whatever challenges we faced.
No matter the challenge, Jay would frequently reply with “I(‘ve) got ya” whenever he saw a situation in which he could help others.
Jay passed in March 2023 following an unexpected diagnosis of cancer. His spirit remains with our team as we welcome new and returning residents over the next few days, and we do our best to say I’ve Got Ya to our Housing community.
