Student Life

The UIS Office of Student Life is engaged in building and maintaining an intellectually and culturally rich and diverse campus community.


 While COVID-19 has caused the cancellation of some programming, we wanted you to know we are here for you and working diligently to keep you connected and engaged even while you are away from campus.  On this page you will find a number of ways to stay connected to your friends and classmates until we see you again on campus.  If you have any suggestions for Student Life, please email us at
