Summer Housing at Western
Western Illinois University will offer flexible lodging to accommodate most all summer school students. No meal plan is required, but there will be in-hall dining option on most days using a meal plan, Rocky Dollars or cash. Here are the two options available for Summer Housing:
- 8-Week session: If you want lodging for the full 8-week session, we will provide traditional student lodging in an air conditioned residence hall room on a floor with other summer school students. Please contact UHDS at 309-298-2461 or visit Seal Hall for more information or to sign-up for summer housing. Rates for 8-week session is determined based on your current rate assessment plan (i.e. Plan J, K, L, M, etc).
- 4-Week session: For students taking classes for the 1st 4-weeks or 2nd 4-weeks only, we will provide traditional student lodging in an air conditioned residence hall room on a floor with other summer school students. Please contact UHDS at 309-298-2461 or visit Seal Hall for more information or to sign-up for summer housing. Rates for 8-week session is determined based on your current rate assessment plan (i.e. Plan J, K, L,M, etc).
- Non-Continuous/Commuter Students: For students taking classes sporadically throughout the semester and therefore wanting non-continuous housing, we will provide a room on a floor either with other students or other guest lodging in an air conditioned residence hall. The rate for this type of lodging is $17+ lodging tax per person per night for single occupancy or $11+ lodging tax per person per night for double occupancy. Non-Continuous/Commuter student housing requests should contact Caitlin Davis at CD-Davis@wiu.edu.

In addition, smoking is permitted outside, in designated areas only. Student and guests are not allowed to smoke or have alcohol in their rooms or inside the building.
