A Place to Call Home
Elmhurst University combines the charm of a park-like campus with the endless opportunities of the world-class city of Chicago.
About Our Campus
On campus, our students enjoy all the classic amenities of college life, from the wide-open green space of our University Mall to a cozy student lounge. The 48-acre grounds are an arboretum, with more than 800 trees and woody plants; our traditional red-brick buildings boast smart classrooms and up-to-date computer technology.
What’s more, the University has a long tradition of environmental stewardship. From low-impact lighting and permeable paving to a Gold LEED-certified residence hall, Elmhurst incorporates green principles throughout campus life.
