Most Tutorium students who choose campus housing live in the UIC SSR building. Students in SSR housing have a private bedroom and share a bathroom and kitchen with roommates. Because SSR housing includes kitchens, the UIC student meal plan is optional.

  • Family housing is not available to Tutorium students.
  • Applications are processed in the order in which they are received.
  • Rooms are assigned based on availability.
