Landlords are able to list rental properties through our Off-Campus Housing database. This service is free to use and is an excellent way to connect directly to UIC students. Newly registered landlords can create postings immediately. All postings will be made public upon approval of their account which usually takes between 1 – 3 business days.
If you’re looking to live off campus, you’ll need to know where you want to live, and how you’re going to get your basic needs met. Here you can find services ranging from apartment agencies that will drive you around Chicago to listing sites that will give you the tools to find your own apartment or roommate. Also, don’t forget to check out the hints, tips, and apartment finding resources on the right side of the page. These can be especially useful to people looking for their first apartment or roommate.
