Living in Chicago

photo of UIC students and bus

Chicago is more than a line in our address-everyday life at UIC is enriched by the city that surrounds us.

A hub of activity in its own right, the UIC campus is just minutes away from restaurants of every style, cutting-edge music, concerts and events at Millennium Park on Chicago's lakefront, State Street and Michigan Avenue shopping, esteemed art and science museums and so much more.

Convenient transportation and our central location make it easy for students to become part of this friendly, easy-to-adopt city-the perfect combination of big-city opportunity and small-neighborhood quality of life.
