Illinois State University accommodation

For the first two years post-high school graduation, living on campus is mandatory for students in Academic English + International Year One, International Year One, or Undergraduate Direct. Many international students live in the Hewett-Manchester residence hall complex. The complex is a short distance from Milner Library and offers living-learning communities that group students with common academic interests. For graduate students and those enrolled only in Academic English, Illinois State University offers numerous resources for students to find off-campus housing.
