Chicago: A Global City

Chicago is a city of neighborhoods—77 to be exact. Illinois Tech is located in the neighborhood of Bridgeport, home to the Chicago White Sox, culinary and social hot spots, and a vibrant arts scene. Our campus is located right off of the “L” train, providing students with a direct connection to downtown, which is only a 15-minute train ride away.

Just a mile east is the scenic Lake Michigan, boasting a beautiful Lakefront Trail that connects students to Chicago’s greatest museums, parks, and cultural institutions.

Chicago is a hub for architectural innovation and experimentation, and is the perfect place for future innovators to get real-life exposure across all fields—engineering, architecture, science, and so much more!
