2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are cold even during the summer nights.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus, but I here living off campus is a hit or miss.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: UIC has Greek town, Taylor street, and resturants down Halsted street.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Transportation is key to UIC. The ventra is a life saver and walking isn't so bad either. Policies at UIC are a 2 sided coin. Some of them are really bad like dorm policies or cafe policies.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Parking wise is okay. Financial aid is tricky. Make sure you know the UIC deadlines.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It would be so much better if the wifi wasn't so spotty. The wifi went out an entire week last year and the printing quota is really dumb.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's pretty bad, but you can make do depending on where you live.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Not too crazy, but there is stuff to find, especially in the neighborhood, or in other parts of the city.

Campus Housing: Some residence halls aren't perfect, but hey, the location more than makes up for it. (And some residence halls - I mean you, JST -- are great). :)

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is much cheaper than on campus but the quality is not always that great. Availability is limited to closer you want to live to campus.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The school does not seem to know much about what is going on. Most activities done by students, the faculty is unaware of.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Unfortunately I am struggling to pay my tuition but no financial aid is offered to me based off my parents income. My parents do not want to pay my tuition so unfortunately I lose out on any financial aid and am stuck taking out extreme amounts of loans.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The availability and assistance offered is excellent. The only issue is that the wifi often doesn't work or is very slow.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I refuse to eat the food on campus because it is bad quality, mostly unhealthy and very expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus in the city is only convenient because you are within walking distance to classes. TBH is the best options for campus housing but is only offered to upperclassmen. There is a poor social atmosphere in housing because most people keep to themselves. The housing is way too expensive for what you get out of it. The housing process is easy for the most part.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: they offer services to support and the people are very nice.

Off-Campus Housing: The pricing of housing near UIC is extremely high.. chicago is very pricey. there are many commuters that come from all over the chicago area and they take public transportation. chicagos very expensive though. you would have to get a few roommates and have a decent job in order to live around there.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The academic curriculum, the opportunities for research and international collaboration, and the cultural richness of the city are all things students come to love over the course of their experience at the University of Illinois at Chicago. From artists such as Ed Uhlir (who designed Millennium Park in Chicago) to professors conducting research in technologies that have come to affect people's everyday lives, UIC has and continues to produce many leaders in numerous areas of study. And although it has its flaws, UIC is always seeking to grow economically and academically.

Apart from its Research I Institution status, rigorous academic programs, and numerous internship and job opportunities, what further makes UIC unique is its ample diversity. Diversity in the student body and faculty, coupled with programs such as study abroad and student exchange, continue to propel UIC into becoming a world leader in technology, business, and politics, as well as in humanitarian and cultural affairs. Also, the opportunity to explore Chicago through the UIC Experience program allows students and staff to have fun and amazing adventures that create long-lasting friendships and memories. In the end, the success of UIC graduates in their future endeavors will always have its roots in the motto of the University: “A world class-education, in a world-class city.”
