Campus Life

Your home life on campus is not just about being in class and studying.

IIT students work hard at their studies, but they also find time during their busy weeks for fun and involvement. Many are active among more than 100 available clubs and campus organizations, some join one of IIT's seven fraternities and three sororities, and others compete each year in the IIT Pumpkin Launch.

Athletics at IIT

Let’s talk sports. Varsity athletics has had a strong and proud legacy at IIT. Illinois Tech currently offers thirteen NCAA Division III varsity sports, including: men’s baseball; women’s volleyball and lacrosse; men’s and women’s basketball, soccer, track and field, cross country and swimming and diving.

IIT also offers club sports including badminton, cricket, cycling, fencing, flag football, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, rock climbing, and water polo. Want more? How about our campus disc golf course, and the bowling alley in The Bog?
