Housing Options

City Scholars participants are responsible for securing and paying for their own housing. 

UIC Housing at SSR

The official program housing option is available at the University of Illinois at Chicago in the Single Student Residence Hall. UIC Housing accommodates City Scholars students and provides a reliable and safe housing option. We strongly recommend this option.

Benefits associated with this option include: 

  • City Scholar staff assistance with facilitating the UIC housing process 
  • Housing Fees billed directly to your student account
  • All utilities and laundry
  • Live in the same wing as other City Scholars (good for commuting/study buddies) 
  • Close and easy access to UIC campus facilities (rec center, health center, libraries, computer labs and more)
