Thursday - Friday: 8:30 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. (CT)

You can text 312.584.4970 while the Virtual Concierge Line is open and someone will respond to your question. Texting rates apply based on your mobile carrier settings.


Move In and Check In

Parents and students will start the week by dropping off and organizing students’ belongings in their assigned residence halls. Illinois Tech staff will be available to assist with moving items into the halls.

On-campus residents should check in directly at their assigned residence hall. Commuters should check in at the Welcome Desk at The McCormick Tribune Campus Center (MTCC).
