Illinois "Stay at Home" Orders - Woods Update
March 20, 2020 - Jamie Kowalczyk

Hello Woods Residents,

As you may be aware, Governor J.B. Pritzker has issued a “stay at home” order in Illinois until April 7th.  Although the Woods office will not have physical staff, you will be able to reach a Woods staff member by calling the office number at 217-464-8635. We will have a leasing staff member available Monday-Friday 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM and Saturday & Sunday 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM. If you wanting to sign a lease for 20/21 you can email the Leasing Manager, Chrissy, at

We have currently suspended any non-emergency maintenances requests. If you do have a maintenance emergency after-hours, you can reach the on-call technician by calling the office number. After-hours Security will remain in place at the Woods during this time. Please contact Security for any lock-outs or emergency needs.

Please remember that Millikin University is following CDC guidelines regarding social distancing. Gatherings will not be permitted. Please do not have guests during this time. This will keep yourself and others safe within the shared space of your apartment.
