Cancellations & Exemptions 

If you are concerned about living in university housing due to risks associated with COVID-19 or if most of your classes are scheduled to be online, you do not have to live in university housing for the 2020-21 academic year.

  • Contract Cancellation Request: If you have submitted a housing contract and initial payment, you can cancel your housing and meal plan contracts with no penalty. Your initial payment will be credited to your student account. 
  • Exemption Request: If you have not submitted a housing contract and initial payment, but you are required to live on campus, you must submit a housing exemption request.
  • Deadline: Requests should be received by July 31, 2020 by following the steps outlined in the Housing and Dining Portal. Our team will review requests and respond via email within 5 business days. If you do not put in a request by July 31, 2020, we will expect that you plan to live in university housing.

Move-In - Fall 2020 

  • Move-In is scheduled for August 7 – 16 and will be appointment-based to limit the total number of people moving in during a specific time and to allow for proper social distancing. Once your room assignment is finalized, you can choose your Move-In date and time in the Housing and Dining portal. Prior to Move-In, you are encouraged to download the Move-In Guide as part of the official Illinois State University app.  

Room Options  - Fall 2020

  • At this time, we are planning to de-densify our Housing options by no longer offering quad or triple styled rooms. Rooms that were previously quads/triples will now be deluxe double rooms charged at a premium room rate.  Please remember to always refer to the University’s  Coronavirus response webpage  and official emails from staff/departments at Illinois State University as the most accurate sources of information.
