Campus Life and Diversity

150+ student organizations. 17 NCAA teams. A state-of-the-art innovation hub.

All within 3 miles of downtown Chicago.

Some of the most famous buildings in the world, designed by legendary architects, are located on Illinois Tech’s Mies Campus in Chicago. S. R. Crown Hall, an elegant steel-and-glass National Historic Landmark, is a marvel of engineering and simplicity by former Illinois Tech professor and head of architecture Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Elevated trains run through the Rem Koolhaas-designed McCormick Tribune Campus Center. And Helmut Jahn’s State Street Village is one of the on-campus places to live.

Illinois Tech’s Mies Campus is one of the 200 most important works of architecture in the U.S.—and you get to live, eat, learn, and play here. Picture yourself on campus.
