Residence Hall Options
All University Housing residence halls feature on-campus locations, convenient services in the hall, and professional staff. Living on campus also means that you will be able to use your meal plan in any University Housing dining hall. Your choice to live with us means you will be in the middle of it all: the Illinois experience starts here.
As you complete your University Housing application, you will be asked for your preferences. You can also note your preference for a non-visitation community (four rooms in Evans), a substance-free hall (Snyder), or the Scholars Community (two floors in LAR).
Even if you're planning to attend just one semester at the University of Illinois, we have a place for you!
Here are some unique opportunities to make the most of your time on campus.
University Housing's seven Living-Learning Communities are located in residence halls across campus. Living with other students with similar interests is a great way to become involved and find your place at Illinois. The award-winning programs and services of our Living-Learning Communities are to your advantage.

All rooms in the undergraduate residence halls are fully furnished. All residence halls feature lounges, computer labs, residence hall libraries (either in the hall or the complex), high-speed Internet access, laundry facilities, vending options, and large-screen TVs in common areas.
Ikenberry Commons North
Our Ikenberry Commons area is currently undergoing construction to bring more amenities and services to students. You can learn more about the projects here. Residents of Ikenberry Commons will encounter some construction-related fencing and noise during work hours. We try our best to keep distractions to a minimum.

Meal plans are required for all students who live our undergraduate residence halls. Although not required for graduate upper-division hall residents, many do opt to purchase a meal plan for the value and convenience. You will choose a plan when you complete your online contract.
