About Ike Library
The Ikenberry Library is one of six Residence Hall Libraries on the University of Illinois campus. In fact, it is the only Residence Hall Library that is located on the Champaign side, which is why it is significantly larger than the Urbana locations. We serve about 3,500 undergraduate students residing in Ikenberry Commons, which are primarily first and second year students.
"The primary mission of the Residence Hall Library System (RHLS) is to support the residents, staff, and programs of University Housing at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The RHLS provides students with resources that meet their educational, social, and cultural needs. We foster unique learning opportunities through our information resources, collections, and programming. Our collections and programs support all aspects of students’ lives both academically and personally. Our mission complements the missions of University Housing, Residential Life, and works within the framework of the University Library’s mission."
