Bromley Hall is a newly renovated and fully air-conditioned University approved, co-ed residence hall on the University of Illinois campus.
We offer many unique advantages for today's college students. In addition to its prime location, Bromley Hall has the largest rooms on campus with new adjoining semi-private bathrooms. Regular housekeeping service in all residents' rooms is provided at no additional cost.
The entire building is protected by a state-of-the-art fire suppression (sprinkler) system. The reception desk is open 24/7. A large, heated indoor swimming pool is located adjacent to the lobby.
Bromley Hall is the campus leader in internet technology, providing all residents with direct high-speed Internet access to the University of Illinois' campus computer system. Residents can access our free wifi network with their laptops (and a wireless card) from just about anywhere in the building.
Bromley Hall has a prime location at the corner of Third and Chalmers streets in Champaign. The center of campus and other University facilities, as well as campus town restaurants and stores, are only a short walk away. See our location page for more detailed information.

Yes. Bromley Hall is equipped with a wet fire sprinkler protection system throughout the building. There are sprinkler heads in all the residents' rooms and public areas. The sprinkler system is tied directly into the Champaign Fire Department.
Yes. If you wish to be roommates or suitemates with certain people, you need to indicate this in Part II of your Room and Board Agreement Addendum. Bromley Hall will only honor mutual roommate and/or suitemate requests. The other person(s) with whom you would like to live must also request you as a roommate or suitemate in his or her Addendum. Room assignments are made on a first-come-first-served basis. The sooner you get your Addendum submitted the more likely you are to get your room type and/or desired room.
Yes, Bromley Hall requires the student to pay a $300 security deposit and a $50 non-refundable processing fee at the time the Addendum is signed. The $300 security deposit will be retained by the agent (Bromley Hall) until the end of the academic year. If the student fulfills all the obligations under this agreement, their security deposit will be refunded within thirty (30) days following the expiration of the term of the contract less deductions for any damages to the agent's personal property, furniture, furnishings, and equipment in excess of normal wear and tear, plus any unpaid financial obligations established by the agreement. The $50 processing fee will not be refunded.
Bromley Hall has a special agreement with the University, which allows residents in the University Residence Halls to transfer into Bromley Hall without any financial penalty whatsoever; similarly, we reciprocate and allow our residents to transfer into the University Residence Halls without any penalty. Our reciprocal housing agreement with the University does not apply to other privately owned housing facilities at the University of Illinois.
Article C.2. of the Room and Board Agreement outlines the circumstances and provisions under which residents may cancel their contract. Some circumstances do not require any penalty and some have financial penalties. It is very important that you read these provisions carefully so that there are no misunderstandings later.
A professional catering company, Tice Food Service, provides Bromley Hall residents some of the finest food on campus. We serve three meals per day Monday through Friday and brunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday. Meal service begins on the first day of classes and ends on the last day of final examinations in each semester. Our food service program consists of two board plans:
The All Meals Served Plan allows a resident to enter the dining room one time at each meal offered. Meals served are breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday. A brunch and dinner are served Saturday and Sunday.
The Any Two Meals Served per Day Plan allows a resident to enter the dining room twice a day (i.e., breakfast and lunch, lunch and dinner, or breakfast and dinner).
All meals are served in our spacious dining room located on the first floor. Please see the My Bromley section for the weekly menu and dining hall hours.
Simply put, Bromley Hall does not allow smoking, alcohol, or illegal drugs anywhere in the building.
A number of our residents have allergies to smoke and their needs must be accommodated, and so smoking is not allowed anywhere in Bromley Hall. Smoking has been determined to be a health hazard as smoking-related illnesses endanger smokers directly and non-smokers indirectly.
Because a large number of our residents are under the age of 21, we have adopted the policy that no alcoholic beverages are permitted anywhere within Bromley Hall, regardless of age.

Ft. microwave oven with touch pad controls. These units are specifically designed to efficiently fit in our rooms and are shared by the residents in the room.
Bromley Hall does not allow waterbeds or other liquid-filled furniture because of the excessive weight and potential for leakage. Some of our residents do bring bunk beds or "lofts" from home.

The top of the uncompressed mattress must be a minimum of thirty (30) inches from the ceiling above (8 foot ceilings).
The top of the uncompressed mattress must be a maximum of seventy-two(72) inches from the floor.
A loft may not be larger than the length of the mattress plus frame dimension by forty-eight (48) inches.
Lofts must be a minimum of thirty-six (36) inches clearance between the top of the mattress of the lower bunk and the bottom of the upper bunk.
All beds must be accessible by not less than a floor to ceiling opening as wide as the long side of the loft or bed. Beds and sleeping areas must not be concealed in any way that will hinder emergency responders from locating occupants.
Combustible materials (including but not limited to: posters, curtains, paneling, etc.) may not surround or be attached to the loft. Fire resistant material that is approved by an independent testing company may be allowed.
Only listed low voltage or fluorescent lighting fixtures installed to prevent contact with bedding may be attached to a loft, as approved by the code official. Halogen fixtures of any type are not approved.
Lofts must not obstruct sprinkler heads or interfere with proper sprinkler coverage.
The minimum distance between parallel lofts/bunks must be thirty-two (32) inches. A minimum thirty-six (36) inches wide clear path of travel to the room door must be maintained.
Lofts and other furniture in the room must not obstruct access to or operation of windows and doors. Doors must be able to fully open. A minimum of thirty (30) inches of clear space must be maintained in front of required egress windows.
