Move-In Days

Fall 2016

Welcome to UIC Campus Housing! On this page you will find important information about dates and deadlines, as well as information to help you on Move-In Day.


The residence halls are scheduled to open on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 at 9AM. (Monday, August 22 is the first day of classes.) Please see Where to Check In for more information. All students new to Campus Housing should make a special point to move in early enough to connect with the residence life team. Team members will be available to help new students get to know one another as well as become comfortable with their new environment prior to the first day of classes.

Arriving Early or Arriving Late

If you are planning to arrive before Wednesday, August 17, please sign up for interim housing at Students will pay a small per-night fee for interim housing.

If you are planning to arrive after Monday, August 22, please contact the Housing Office prior to August 17 so that your late arrival will not be mistaken for a change in your housing plans.
