“One of America’s Most Beautiful College Campuses”
Illinois Tech's Mies Campus represents the best of Chicago living: inspiring architecture, gorgeous views of downtown Chicago, tree-lined pathways, and convenient access to Lake Michigan (less than a mile away). An architectural gem just minutes from downtown, the campus' many accolades include recognition as one of the 200 most important works of architecture in the United States by the American Institute of Architects. Named after famed Modernist architect and longtime head of the university’s architecture program Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, it is home to the world’s largest collection of Mies-designed buildings in the world.
Located in the historic Bronzeville neighborhood, Mies Campus quickly connects you with one of the fastest-growing tech hubs in the U.S. via the Red Line “L” and Green Line elevated “L” train, the Metra Rock Island line trains, Chicago Transit Authority buses, Divvy bikes, and much more.
