If you believe you have reason to live off campus but are required to live on campus, please learn more about the exemption process here.
The University may grant exceptions to student who are not required but would like to live on campus. Because University Housing Services must reserve space for students who are required to live on campus, we have a limited amount of exceptions available. You may learn more about the exception process on the Campus Housing Exceptions page.

ISU faculty and staff are invited to participate in University Housing Services’ annual student outreach program, House Calls. From Monday, September 8 through Thursday, September 11, university faculty/staff volunteers will visit on-campus housing and reach out to approximately 6,200 students to see how their first weeks of class are going, provide them with information about university resources, and answer questions. Register by September 4 here.
We hope to see you there! Learn how to RSVP for this FREE event here.
Welcome2ISU, Illinois State’s Web portal, is open at 8:30 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. daily for students to submit their housing application-contract for the 2014-2015 academic year. Submission of this application-contract will determine your priority within the room selection process.
The University requires students to live in university housing their first two years out of high school. Students who fall under the University On-Campus Housing Policy will not be able to register for classes until University Housing Services receives their residence hall contract and initial payment. These regulations are applicable to all students insofar as space is available in University residence halls.
Spaces are still available for spring 2014 at Shelbourne apartments. These spaces are for students who are married or in domestic partnerships, students with dependents, graduate students, and qualifying upper class students. Submit an application today.
Applications for fall 2014 are available here.
Mounted door knobs, mailbox doors, and room numbers from Atkin/Colby and Hamilton/Whitten residence halls are available for purchase and benefit the University Housing Services Student Employee Scholarship fund. Learn more.
If something in your room or apartment is not working properly, please submit a work order request as soon as possible and a member of our maintenance team will address your concern. Click on "Work Order" on the left side of the Housing homepage to access the system.
