2020-2021 Residence Hall Notice
The 2020-2021 University Housing contracting process has been uniquely impacted by COVID-19. We are actively working with campus partners to remain flexible and make housing decisions that align with directives from campus leadership. Once a decision about fall instruction is shared in mid-June, further detail about on-campus housing will follow.
The University Housing May 15 Priority Deadline is intended to allow first-year students the opportunity to choose their own space. Students who wish to contract after the May 15 Priority Deadline are still guaranteed housing but will be assigned a space by the Housing Information Office.
Currently, the Housing Contract requires residents to be enrolled in order to live in University Housing. Students who defer their enrollment will be covered by the Housing Contract Release Provisions.
Before you complete your contract, here are some helpful resources:
- Undergraduate Hall Options

During the year, specialty housing is available for students in both the halls and apartments. Please choose one of the following options if you are living in the halls and will need housing during the fall, winter, or spring breaks, or if you are visiting the University and in need of guest housing.
We offer summer housing for students who plan to live in the residence halls during the summer. Summer rates are affordable, and Daniels Hall is conveniently located on campus near the Illini Union.
For students who plan to remain in the residence halls during break periods when most residence halls are closed. Break options for 2019–2020 are available in Florida Avenue Residence Halls (FAR) and Snyder Hall.
If you received a message that you were assigned to a room in temporary housing for the fall, read the temporary housing web page for photos, a video, and more details.
Students can also choose to live in a Private Certified Housing facility.
If you believe you require housing accommodations due to a documented disability-related condition, you will need to register with the Division of Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES) in addition to submitting your housing application. DRES is responsible for providing services to students with disabilities and is available to consult with other areas of campus regarding ADA accessibility issues. For further information on how to register with DRES, visit www.disability.illinois.edu or call (217) 333-4603. See University Housing's ADA options.
