The campus living/learning environment options are integral to the student's overall success and collegiate experience at UIS. As such, all UIS freshmen and sophomores are required to reside on-campus. UIS defines freshmen and sophomores as students who have completed less than two (2) full years beyond high school education. Exemption requests must meet specific criteria. Students may request permission to live at home in the greater Springfield area (within 40 miles of campus) as noted below. It is the student's responsibility to provide sufficient documentation required to support any request. All documentation must be submitted to the Department of Residence Life at firstname.lastname@example.org.
