EIU Housing




With eleven Residence Halls, two apartment complexes, and Greek Court you'll be sure to find a housing option to fit your needs.  While it's the people that make our buildings special, there a few floors that offer a little something extra.

Transfer Housing

Transfer are students are welcome to live anywhere on campus, but many of our transfer students looking to live in a residence hall choose our suite-style Stevenson Hall. Benefits of living in Stevenson Hall include living with other transfer students who are adjusting to EIU and participating in events created specifically for transfer students! For students looking for apartment style living, a high population of transfer students also reside in University Court Apartments. University Court Apartments are fully furnished, affordable, and convenient apartments only steps from campus.

Break Housing

Available for those students who need to stay on campus when the rest of the University closes for breaks (longer than three days) for an additional fee. Buildings that offer break housing are DouglasLincolnStevenson and Thomas Halls.

Honors Housing Floors

Programming efforts on these floors are coordinated by University Housing & Dining Services in conjunction with the Honors College and are geared toward the honors student community. Honors students receive priority assignment based on availability on Honors Floors in Thomas Hall.

Roosevelt Leadership Institute 

Residents in Pemberton Hall can join this women's leadership community to dedicate themselves toward developing engaging leadership qualities through programs and a guest speaker series provided by successful women leaders across campus and the community. 

Freshman Connection

The Freshman Connection program pairs incoming freshmen with upperclassmen and Panthers who have lived the EIU experience. Freshmen taking part in the program will receive valuable support from other students that spans all aspects of life on campus. They’ll get first-hand knowledge about how to take on classes and studying, making friends and joining groups, and managing finances while in college.



Select floors in Pemberton Hall and Andrews Hall have limited visitation which means residents are not allowed to host opposite sex guests between 11:55p.m. to 11a.m. Monday - Thursday. There is no limitation to visitation hours in other communities on campus.
