Come Visit Us

Did you know that students who visit universities before attending are more likely to graduate? A recent study at UCLA points out that, "The importance of a visit to campus in choosing which college to attend is also positively associated with degree completion, with an effect large enough to be considered among the stronger effects . . . where it increases the odds of graduation . . . by 6.4%." (From DeAngelo, L., Franke, R., Hurtado, S., Pryor, J. H., & Tran, S. (2011). Completing college: Assessing graduation rates at four-year institutions. Los Angeles: Higher Education Research Institute, UCLA.)

Schedule a Tour

Already have a room assignment?

If you already have a room assignment for fall, contact the Central Housing Offiec at housingtours@uic.edu or (312) 355-6300 with what space you want to see a few dates and times that would work for tours. If your exact space is not available to be shown at a time convenient to you (because of use over the summer by conferences, routine maintenance, or other issues), she will find a comparable space to show you.

Group Visits

If you have a group of 10 or more students, in 9th grade or above, we will be happy to arrange a personalized visit for your group. Call the Central Housing Office at (312) 355-6300 to set up an appointment. To arrange a group visitation beyond the residence halls, please contact the Office of Admissions and Records' Group Visits. They will be more than happy to help you schedule a full campus tour.

Please contact us at least two weeks ahead of time so we can make all of the necessary arrangements.
