Living in C-U

Combining natural Midwestern beauty with cultural resources typically found in larger metropolitan areas, the twin cities of Urbana-Champaign retain the charm, friendliness, safety and affordability of smaller communities. Housing, entertainment, and living expenses are comparatively low. That translates into fewer dollars spent on staples and more in your pocket to explore your passions. Easy commutes, a designated “bike-friendly” community, and an award-winning mass transit system (free with campus ID) make it quick and simple to get from here to there.
