Housing and Dining

Students at table

Students in our Intensive English Program have the option to live on campus in UIC housing.

Tutorium students who live in a UIC Residence Hall have their own single bedroom and share a bathroom and kitchen with roommates. Family housing is not available to Tutorium students.

Because these housing assignments have kitchens, students do not need a meal plan.  If you want to eat in campus cafeterias, meal plans are available.

Housing Options

On Campus

Tutorium students can live on campus in one of the UIC Residence Halls. Applications are processed in the order in which they are received, and rooms are assigned based on availability.

Send us your questions about campus housing by emailing: tutorium@uic.edu.

Temporary Stay

The Tutorium recommends that students arrange housing before arriving in Chicago.

However, if a student needs temporary accommodations,
such as a hotel or a hostel, nearby temporary housing options are available.


The Tutorium offers a Homestay program through the American Homestay Network. Homestay is an opportunity to live in a home with an American family located near your school. Host families provide a private bedroom and a private or shared bath, plus different meal options.

Off-Campus Housing

The majority of the students at The Tutorium live off-campus in apartments and lofts. Use this list of housing advice and vocabulary to help in your search for a Chicago apartment.
