At U of I, you’ll get the authentic college experience. And living on our beautiful classic campus puts you at the center of it all. Whether you choose a residence hall or Greek house, living on campus makes it easy to find your crowd at student clubs, socials and campus hot spots. You’ll be surrounded by action — just steps from Vandal athletic events, student activities and shows, the award-winning Student Recreation Center, the annual Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival and so much more.
