 COVID Tests
 

COVID-19 Testing Requirements

Residents who are affiliated with the University are expected to participate in COVID-19 testing on campus. Even if you are working from home or taking all classes online you are expected to test, because you live in University owned property.

A recent email from the Chancellor announced that COVID-19 testing is now available for family and household members of UIUC faculty, staff and students. Family members 8-17 years of age of current Family & Graduate Housing leaseholders are now eligible to participate in on-campus testing. The cost will be $10 per test. Read more about test eligibility, cost and enrollment.

Family members 18 years or older currently living in Family & Graduate Housing are required to participate in on-campus COVID-19 testing. Leaseholders have received information about this process.

Questions? Contact us at apartments@illinois.edu.

 
   
 
 Stay Home
 

Isolation/Self-Quarantine

If you or a member of your household tests positive for COVID-19 or if anyone in your household is directed to self-quarantine, email Family & Graduate Housing at apartments@illinois.edu and request to talk to someone about COVID-19.

 
   
 
 UIUC Graduate
 

Are You Graduating?

Residents who will lose their affiliation with the university prior to July 31, 2021 (examples include May 2021 graduation, Visiting Scholar or post-doc appointment ends) may request to end their current lease before then. If the request is approved, residents will continue to be billed for rent a minimum of 45 days from the day their completed Early Lease Termination of Lease Request Form is returned to the Family & Graduate Housing office.

Subletting Not Allowed

Residents may not have a guest in their apartment if they are not going to be present for the entire visit — regardless of whether or not the guest pays rent to the resident. This is considered subletting and is a violation of the lease.
