In response to Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s stay-at-home order, which starts Saturday and will last until April 7, students in University Housing must move out by 2 p.m. Saturday.

University Housing Move-Out will be available Saturday from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. to help with the process and all University Housing buildings will be locked after 2 p.m. However, for students unable to make the newly scheduled times, further instructions on how to retreive, ship or store personal belongings will be provided sometime next week.

Before Pritzker announced the order on Friday, the move-out deadline for University Housing was March 28.

Students will be prorated for the room assignment and academic meal plan as of March 14, unless they have chosen to remain in University Housing.

If Students want to continue living with University Housing, they must fill out an exception form.

Housing will still be available in Bousfield, Nugent, Wassaja, Sherman, Daniels and Pennsylvania Avenue Residence. Those already living there are able to stay in their own rooms, and other residents will receive a new room assignment.

Dining options include the Ikenberry Dining Center, PAR, 57 North and Urbana South Market.
