Welcome to Armory House! I hope you have a wonderful year with us. I have owned and managed Armory House since 1973, and have enjoyed meeting students and their families from around the world. My husband and I are U. of I. graduates, and our children and their spouses are as well. We are truly an Illini family!

Our son, Jon, graduated in Political Science from the U. of I. and earned his law degree from the University of Indiana. His wife, Kim, is a U. of I. graduate in Math Education and she also has a masters in Administration. They are raising three future Illini – Hunter 6, Lincoln 3, and Beckett 2.

Our daughter, Emily, graduated from the U. of I. with a masters in Bilingual Elementary Education, and her husband, Jeremy, earned his masters in Electrical and Computer Engineering.  Their one-year-old daughter, Claire, is another future Illini.

I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, and am actively involved in my church community. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening and creative writing

 I hope your student will choose Armory House as their home on campus and that we will have the opportunity to personally get acquainted.  If you would like to meet other Armory House parents check out the “Parents Comment” section to learn of their family’s experiences with Armory House. In the “What to Expect” and FAQ sections, we provide you with the information you need to keep a step ahead in your planning.  Take a look around Parents Corner and let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

From my Illini family to yours –  We welcome you to the University of Illinois!
