Working for Residential Life

Welcome to Residential Life! We are excited by your interest in the University of Illinois and University Housing. We hope that our website will provide you with helpful information about University Housing, Residential Life, and the Urbana-Champaign community.

Our staff are diverse, multidimensional, highly talented, hard-working, caring, and fun professionals who always have the needs of students in the forefront of their minds. We are growing our staff of full-time professionals as new Living Learning Communities develop and as University Housing expands and restructures to accommodate our residential student population. We have believed for many years there is a niche for everyone in Residential Life, and room for new staff to add their specialty areas to the strengths of the team.

Please feel free to contact our office if you have questions. We’ll do all we can to help you. Hope to see you soon in Urbana-Champaign!
