We understand how important roommate selection is to your college experience. Illini Tower provides a roommate matching service to assist you request future roommates, or assign you according to your lifestyle preferences.
Mutual roommates must BOTH request each other. Roommates will not be assigned together if only one person requests the other resident as a roommate. Both you and your preferred roommate should complete your contracts by June 15th. Meeting the June 15 priority deadline greatly increases the likelihood that you will be assigned together.
No room or roommate changes may be requested after the assignment process has started: June 15th (Fall semester) and December 15 (Spring semester). After the tenth day of classes, room changes are considered only after the residents involved have made a serious attempt (following the procedure as it is outlined in the lease) to adjust to and/or remedy the situation. Requests for room changes must be approved by the Assistant General Manager.
