Illini Union dining support

Starting May 2018, the Illinois Street Residence Hall (ISR) will be undergoing renovation that will transform the dining and programming space in the 53-year old building on Green Street. Due to the construction, temporary dining will be offered in collaboration with the Illini Union.
