Apartments: How to Apply


Looking to live in an apartment next year?

Here are a few reasons why we are different from other apartments in the Champaign-Urbana community:

  • Trusted landlord. We are university owned and operated.
  • Lots of options. Different spaces to fit your budget - furnished and unfurnished, efficiency, one-bedroom and two bedrooms apartments.
  • Live with other Illini. All of our residents are affiliated with the university in some way, so you can surround yourself with other students, professionals and families on the same journey as you.
  • Select utilities included with no hidden costs. Cable, high-speed internet, water, trash and laundry are all included in your rent, with no steep security deposit or application fee.
  • 24-hour staff. Our on-call staff are always available, whether it’s noon or midnight.
  • Flexible living terms. Graduating? Unexpected changes to your academic program? All leases include the option to apply for early termination.
  • Vibrant communities. Connect with neighbors from around the world at regularly planned community events and programs for all ages.
  • Local Transportation. Get around easily with convenient access to the local bus services.
