Select Move-In Time Slot >> 

To select a Move-In time slot, you must have a confirmed room assignment or temporary housing assignment. If you are still waiting for an assignment, please be patient as we work through the assignments process. We have plenty of Move-In time slots to choose from and guarantee a time that will accommodate your travel schedule. Assignment confirmations from Room Selection and for Contracts submitted during June will be sent out no later than June 24, 2022. For Contracts submitted after June 22, assignments will be completed in the order contracts are received and assignment confirmation emails will be sent out July 8, 22 and August 5. 

If you are unable to select a timeslot because you will arrive after the last check in timeslot available, please check in at your front desk upon arrival.

If you will be unable to arrive by the first day of classes on August 22, please notify the Housing Information Office by email at housing@illinois.edu of when you intend to check in. If you arrive after August 22 without notifying the Housing Information Office, your assignment may change. Failure to claim your room assignment does not automatically cancel your contract.
