UIC Global Housing

To help you succeed in the classroom, adjust to college in the U.S. and enjoy campus life, you are required to live in program housing during your time at UIC Global. Students will be able to choose from seven different options that vary by location, price and amenities. On-campus options are all located on East Campus, the main campus of undergraduate life at UIC.
