Discover Why Illinois Tech is Right for You

Illinois Tech's Mies (Main) Campus, minutes from downtown Chicago, is on the National Register of Historic Places and was named as one of “America’s most beautiful college campuses” by Forbes magazine. We invite you to come see it yourself!

We have a variety of visit types for you to choose from. You can meet with an admissions recruiter and speak with faculty or staff from your academic department of interest. Our future students consistently emphasize the helpful nature of these visits, and we trust that you also will find them informative.

If you’re not able to visit us in Chicago, click here to see if we’ll be traveling to an event near you. If an Enrollment Advisor will be near you, email to contact us and hopefully we’ll be able to connect and see if Illinois Tech is a fit for you and your career aspirations.

Individual Weekday Visit Opportunities

We encourage graduate students to visit and explore their program of interest. Through our visit program, you can meet with an admissions recruiter or speak with someone from your academic department of interest, whether it be faculty or knowledgeable staff. These are not interviews and are not required as part of the admissions process, although they may be extremely beneficial to you as you research and choose among potential graduate schools or programs. You view availabile dates below*.

Campus Tours are led by our undergraduate student ambassadors who will show you around campus. Tours include various academic buildings, residence halls and the McCormick Tribune Campus Center. The walking tours last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
