About

Founded in 1982, University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) is located in the heart of Chicago, one of America’s most vibrant cities, famous for its iconic architecture, numerous museums and diverse economy. Chicago is a national higher education destination, where more than a quarter-million students study at the city’s 50+ colleges and universities. It is also a living laboratory for business, politics, art, architecture, culture, religion, racial and ethnic diversity, urban issues, education and health. It is local and global, urban and green, relaxed and frenetic, cultured and down to earth, big and easy to navigate - full of opportunities for new, enriching experiences.

UIC’s proximity to Chicago’s business center and urban healthcare district (the largest in the nation) gives UIC students an edge when it comes to finding internships and work experiences. Local employers include Google, Boeing, Deloitte, Groupon, Argonne National Labs, Accenture, WGN News, National Public Radio, Steppenwolf Theatre and more. UIC embraces its urban location, with a focus on engaging students in the metropolitan, social and health issues that face Chicago and cities around the world.

As the largest university in Chicago and the only public research university in the city, UIC is a great place to call home for the next few years. It offers more than 70 undergraduate degrees in many fields including architecture, the arts, design, education, engineering, health sciences, liberal arts, life sciences and urban and public affairs. These programs will challenge and inspire students, and may even change the direction of their lives. 

UIC maintains the Hull-House Museum where Jane Addams - the first American woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize - founded a settlement house in 1889 to help immigrants adapt to American life. Addams’ commitment to social reform is integral to UIC’s mission today.
