What Our Residents Have to Say

4.4 rating | based on 412 reviews

I have lived at Illini Tower for a little over a year and I have really enjoyed how friendly the staff is and how accommodating they are! Everything is kept neat and orderly, and the residents and their fur babies have been friendly!



This place is awesome. They’re always doing random stuff for residents, the place is clean, maintenance requests get done very quickly, the office staff is more than welcoming / accommodating. I’ve renewed already and I still get the same treatment and energy as I did when I first came through the door before I signed.



So far my experience with Illini Tower has been great. Amenities are great and they have real quality furniture in the apartments. After doing some more tours we loved Illini Tower the most.



This is a beautiful place. I toured almost all the off-campus housing at UIUC and this was the best.



Illini Tower is an excellent student-housing complex. The whole staff is friendly, engaged, and you can tell they’re supportive of the residents and each other. They host nearly daily community events in a safe, clean, and efficient manner despite the pandemic.
