Fun Area – Located just outside the heart of downtown Aurora, next door to the city of Naperville, and just a short trip from Chicago, Aurora University is an ideal place to attend school. Students can enjoy unique restaurants and a pretty rive walk right in downtown Aurora just minutes from campus. Aurora University is also just minutes away from Chicago Premium Outlets and Fox Valley Shopping Mall. Students may also want to venture to downtown Naperville to enjoy another river walk as well as some unique shops and a fun night life. Aurora University is also just minutes from Hollywood Palms Theater, a unique dinner theater that also hosts many special events with well known Hollywood Celebrities. Finally, students are also just minutes from the Aurora transportation center in which they can hop on the metra train and take a short ride down to the City of Chicago to enjoy museums, Navy Peir, unique restaurants, shopping and much more!

The food here sucks! There are only two places to eat, the third option is a cart that is part of the commuter plan, and it's probably the most decent place to get a good snack. The cafeteria food is questionable, and there's not too much variety. There is no fresh cut fruit available, you must purchase separately with"points". As far as "the spot" goes, the food is bad quality, and the people who work there aren't always friendly. I would never eat any kind of "meat" from there, because once it made me gag. Everything else is pretty much fried, and there are not many healthy options

There are tons and tons of computers on campus! There are at least four computer labs that I can think of right now, in addition to the library loaning out laptops for in-library use. Those computer labs are equipped with two working printers each as well as lab attendants (most of the time) to help with any problems. There is another place on campus called "The Spot" which has four or five really night flatscreen monitors. These are open to students, but they are not hooked up to any printers. Connectivity is usually not a problem, the routers were just recently updated. Labs are busy right before class begins however, but not so much so that it's impossible to get a computer if you need one.
