University Housing Hall Tours

Interested in seeing what life is like for students in our residence halls? During your campus visit, plan to take part in a University Housing Hall Tour.

Every Monday through Friday from 2 to 4 p.m., you're invited to stop by tour rooms in 5 of our residence halls, including Nugent, Snyder, ISR, PAR, and Sherman. Check out one or see them all! Learn how today.

Optional Class Visits

Students and families are welcome to visit a class during the school year while on campus to better experience life as an Illinois student. View our list of available classes.

We ask all visitors to arrive before the class begins and stay for the entire duration of the class, as to not cause disruptions. Please introduce yourself to the professor prior to the start of class. Some classes will have particular unavailable dates; this is often when quizzes or exams are being administered.

If you have any questions about our class visit opportunities, contact Campus Visits at 217-333-0824 or
