Living in Chicago

Our Home

Chicago. The Windy City. The best big city in the United States. Whether you want to enjoy a local delicacy, visit one of its many world-class museums, take in a White Sox baseball game, or just explore the city and its multitude of hidden gems, Chicago has it all. Illinois Tech is in the heart of it all, just minutes from the downtown Loop and less than a mile from the beaches and waters of Lake Michigan. It’s why Illinois Tech offers our students the best of both worlds. Plus all full-time students receive a U-Pass, which allows unlimited rides on any CTA bus or train during the fall and spring semesters. Get ready to explore!
