Break Housing Information

Break Housing Options 

University Housing offers housing options in both Champaign and Urbana for students who need to stay on campus over the fall, winter, and spring breaks.

Students living in Illinois Residence Halls (ISR), Pennsylvania Avenue Residence Halls (PAR), Snyder (Ikenberry South), and Wassaja (Ikenberry North) are permitted to remain in their own rooms for all breaks. Students needing break housing accommodations who do not live in one of these halls will be assigned to converted lounge spaces in ISR, PAR, or Snyder Hall. All students staying in an undergraduate residence hall during a break period, regardless of location, will be required to complete a break housing contract. The rate for break housing is $40 per night, and meals will not be available.
