We encourage new students to the University of Illinois to live in Private Certified Housing facilities where they receive support through Residence Life Staff, as well other amenities and services. In some cases, freshman may also be eligible to live in Greek housing. However, membership must first be granted before living in most houses. Membership recruitment varies with each organization. Additionally, to live in a fraternity or sorority as a freshman, the house must be on a list of University of Illinois Certified Housing facilities.
These facilities meet special University Housing Standards.
