The responsibility and purpose of the Office of Residential Life is to create living-learning environments in the residence halls that complement and supplement the academic mission of Illinois College. Residential life strives to develop ethical environments conducive to excellence, openness and mutual dignity. Through partnership with others, residential life provides quality programs, services and facilities for those we serve in a caring, responsible and cost-effective manner trusting that our best efforts can always be improved.
