You Belong Here
Join a club, run an event, get involved—at Elmhurst, you’ll find a welcoming community and a world of opportunities.
We believe that a college experience should be more than what happens in the classroom. It’s also about joining a community, stepping out of your comfort zone and discovering what sparks your passions.
That’s why we offer more than 100 ways to get involved. It’s also why we provide the support you need to thrive.
Living on campus offers all the comforts of home, plus the convenience of a five-minute walk to classes, the gym and the coffee shop.
Join Greek life, serve in student government or play in the jazz band—we offer endless ways to explore your interests and discover new passions.
Borrow a College bicycle and take a five-minute ride to downtown Elmhurst, or head to downtown Chicago—just 30 minutes away on the Metra!
Our Wellness Center offers the health and counseling services you need to thrive.
We’re dedicated to protecting your safety and providing a welcoming, secure environment.
