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 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.
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 Douglas, Lincoln, Stevenson and Thomas Halls.
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.
