Living on campus is a unique experience where you will be immersed in the liberal arts experience as well as the history of Illinois College’s hilltop campus. You will be presented with hundreds of opportunities to learn and grow as a person, all the while making friends to last a lifetime. Illinois College believes that living on campus is an important aspect of a private, liberal arts education. Studies have shown that students who live on campus are more involved and are more likely to graduate.
However, exceptions to the housing requirement are allowed on occasion to respond to needs that cannot be accommodated in the residential setting. To request an exception to the IC housing policy, please complete the Housing Exception Form
Fall 2015 online housing application login details will be mailed to students upon receipt of the $200 enrollment deposit beginning spring 2015.
Illinois College Housing Policy:
All students with less than 88 hours must live on campus. All students will be responsible for the full room and board cost, which will automatically be charged to their account. Exemptions for specific reasons must be filed in the Dean of Student’s Office or Residential Life Office by November 1 for the following Spring semester and by May 1 for the following Fall semester. A housing exception form must be filled out annually by anyone who does not meet the Illinois College housing policy requirements.
