After more than a year of virtual interactions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are thrilled to welcome you back on campus!!

To ensure the safety of our students and staff, the LARES office will be providing services virtually and in person. Consistent with revised public health guidelines, face masks will continue to be required indoors for everyone on campus – this includes the LARES office.

We encourage you to call (312) 996-3356 to schedule an appointment with a LARES Academic Advisor for any questions regarding orientation, registration, financial aid, or any other related issue. Our phone line is open Monday-Friday, 8:30am-3:00pm. If you are a current student, you can also schedule your appointment with a LARES Academic Advisor on iAdvise via your my.uic student portal.
