Housing's ReApp application is available beginning at noon on Monday, February 1

If you are a current Campus Housing resident, ReApp is your opportunity to select your specific room for the future academic year (Fall 2021 & Spring 2022).

Beginning February 1, all students currently living in Campus Housing will be invited to complete a brief ReApp Intent survey, either beginning their ReApp application or notifying Campus Housing that they do not intend to return for the future academic year.

In the ReApp application, current residents will indicate their preference to:

  • live in the same room they are currently placed or,
  • join a Living Learning Community (LLC), or
  • select a new room assignment (General Room selection).

ReApp applicants will then be contacted via their UIC email when they can confirm their room choice (Same Room selection) or select their new room assignment (LLC selection or General Room selection) and sign their Housing contract.
