Winter 2021 Break Housing

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

To stay on campus, residents are required to complete a Winter Break Housing Contract. 

Complete Your Contract >>


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 during break. 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.

Nightly Costs

$40 per night (no meals available) 

Costs will be billed to your student account.  

NOTE: There is no additional charge for winter break housing for Global Crossroads LLC residents. However, these residents must still submit a Break Housing Contract. Global Crossroads LLC residents may remain in their assigned spaces over break.

Contract Deadlines 

Deadline to apply is Friday, December 17 at 10 a.m. (CST). After December 17, break housing will only be provided if spaces remain or become available due to cancellations. If you need to apply after the online contract is closed, please contact one of the following front desks to inquire about space availability.

  • ISR: 217-333-4640
  • PAR: 217-333-2950
  • Snyder: 217-333-2394

Any student without a Break Housing Contract who accesses a building during a break period will be assessed the full break housing charge amount. In addition, any student who accesses a hall without a Break Housing Contract will be referred to either the Residential Life student conduct process or to the University Police for trespassing.
