With two stories of cutting-edge fitness gear to choose from, you can always find a spot to work out the way you want — whether you prefer lifting weights, riding the elliptical, or finding your center on a yoga mat — the possibilities (and health benefits) are endless.
Sometimes more time is lost while traveling back and forth to the library than was actually spent on studying. With our computer lab close at hand, you can get right down to business any time of day or night. You also have a choice between Macs and PCs, and we provide free printing services.
Homework, projects, and exams can take a toll, but a few games now and then can provide a balance. Whether you like to play pool or compete with your friends in other activities, the game lounge has something fun for everyone.
These quiet rooms, which feature subtle lighting and comfortable desks for long hours of work, help you avoid distractions while hitting the books. Plus, whiteboards and markers make study groups a breeze.
Every community has its hub — that central place where people gather to relax, socialize, and turn spare moments in memories. For us, the resident clubhouse is that place. Equipped with a coffee bar, shared kitchen, and lots of seating, this is the go-to spot for everything from study sessions to movie nights.
When it’s time to relax, this is where to go. Themed after a resort-style amenity, our pool covers a sizable area and is flanked by a sundeck with cabanas. And though summer doesn’t last all year in Urbana, there’s also a hot tub and a heated pool option for those chiller days heading into the Fall.
At our student apartments in Illinois, friendly competition is always welcome. Challenge your peers, outscore your friends, and show everyone who the real champion is with a game of bag toss.
