Institute participants will be housed at Presby Hall on the UIUC campus. Opened in 2008, its location gives immediate access to libraries, shops, and restaurants. It is the University’s first “green” residence hall, achieving the Silver Standard from the Energy and Environmental design organization. Presby Hall contains a fitness center and a full service dining hall.
Summer scholars will stay in suites with one or two, same-gender suite-mates:

  • Each suite offers a living room and a full kitchen.
  • Rooms are equipped with beds, desk, dressers, and closets.
  • There is free “wi-fi” access throughout the building.

Room and nightly rate options are as follows:

  • Single room in 3-person suite; shared bath (with 1 other person) adjacent to room ($24)
  • Double room in 3-person suite; shared bath (with 1 other person) adjacent to room ($27)
  • Double room in 3-person suite; private bath adjacent to room ($32)
  • Double room in 2-person suite; private bath adjacent to room ($37)
  • Double room in 2-person suite; private bath within room ($40)

Please note: Regardless of individual arrival and departure dates, all Presby Hall suites will be reserved from Sunday, July 7, through Saturday, July 27. All who elect this housing option are responsible for 20 nights.
