Parents & Family
Planning to Attend Illinois
Whether your son or daughter is a first-year student or a returning upperclassman, we have great options available in University Housing. See a listing of our great locations for freshmen. In addition to our undergraduate residence halls, upperclassmen can join our graduate upper-division community at Daniels or Sherman, or live at Ashton Woods apartments.
Budgeting is easier with University Housing. If your son or daughter lives continuously in University Housing's undergraduate residence halls, the room and board rates—like tuition—won’t increase.
The University of Illinois Office of Undergraduate Admissions has lots of information for parents who have a son or daughter planning to attend Illinois or are just interested in learning more. The Parent Programs Office also offers a variety of resources for parents.
