The Student Organization Complex is located in the Illini Union in room 280. It is on the 2nd floor, south side of the building, quad side. It is conveniently located down the hall from the Office of Registered Organizations.
Registered Student Organizations are able to apply for space in the SOC each spring as tenants frequently change toward the end of the academic year. Organizations that currently hold office and cubicle space in the SOC must meet a required minimum percentage of “space checks” where one of the desk attendants within the Office of Registered Organizations sweeps the complex several times throughout the day, recording which organizations are present and using their space during the hours of operation. Organizations that do not use their space for the minimum requirements may receive a probationary status and possibly face eviction from the SOC. In that event, their space is then made available for applicants to interview to use the space.
The Illini Union Board is responsible for allocating space in the SOC. Because the number of offices is limited, stated guidelines will allow space to be given to those organizations that most need the space.
If your organization is interested in applying for a space please contact the Illini Union Board Office at 217-333-3663, or the IUB Vice President for Policy (Jacques Anderson – firstname.lastname@example.org).
If your organization is interested in any of these resources or if you have any questions or concerns please contact the Student Programs & Activities Office at 217.244.2357.
Organizations must be in compliance with the requirements and procedures in order to gain or retain office space in the Illini Union. Any violation of these rules shall be kept on file as they occur and may result in the loss of office space. The details of the policies may be changed without notice.
