No Solicitation Allowed On University Property

If someone visits your apartment to sell a service of any kind, tell them that solicitation is not permitted on university property. Every year, energy companies come to resident’s doors asking to see a copy of a resident’s latest Ameren bill with promises of lower energy rates. Follow these steps should anyone other than a University Housing staff member, Comcast service technician, friend or family member knock on your door:

  • Inform the person (you don’t even need to open the door) that they are not allowed to go door-to-door as they are on university property where no solicitation of any kind is allowed.
  • Do not give the person any personal information including your name, telephone number or family information. Do not show them any of your personal documents, including your Ameren bill where they can see your account number.
  • Report the soliciation incident to the University of Illinois Police Department at 217-332-1216 and the Family & Graduate Housing Office at 217-333-5656 or apartments@illinois.eduIt is very helpful if you can provide a description of the solicitor(s) so that they can be located by the police.
 
   
 
 UIUC Graduate
 

Did you graduate?

Congratulations! 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.
