3 College Freshman

Administration: I'm not aware of any adverse policies.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not really into partying so I'm not the best guy to ask about this.

3 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It is good for college food.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I feel the housing is appropriate and fair.

3 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

2 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cleanliness is an easy sometimes.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: In all honesty I haven't tried myself to live off campus. I have some friends that have explained to me their process and how the experience was.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Being the city means so many diverse options. 20 minute train ride from China town not to mention UIC is smack in between Little Italy and Greek town! Prices aren't that bad and the food is great!

3 College Freshman

Administration: They act very strict about some things, but don't actually crack down. I know for sure that on east campus they're very strict about who can get in and out.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I have gone to 3 parties in the last year. They very greatly. They can be awful or not bad.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was not able to receive any financial aid from my school. It's really hard to be a lower middle class white person and receive any financial aid at such a culturally diverse school. Not only that, but the office of financial aid is a pain to work with.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The workers can be friendly. Sometimes the food in the cafeteria is really good and sometimes it's really bad. It's also way over-priced.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is really nice and convenient. There are a lot of down side to living on campus at UIC. The residence halls tend to be very dirty. The ceilings and walls have holes. Everything is stained, rusty and past it's prime.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: i hear alot about them, but am not part of them

3 College Junior

Athletics: Our rec centers are diverse and quite spacious and very accessible

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: i dont live in on campus housing but there are some nice looking places around

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many little affordable places as well as more fancier places nearby, and quite the variety.

3 College Junior

Administration: I haven't been involved in too many things to know how strict they would be about them, but overall it looks like they do keep things in check

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The academic curriculum, the opportunities for research and international collaboration, and the cultural richness of the city are all things students come to love over the course of their experience at the University of Illinois at Chicago. From artists such as Ed Uhlir (who designed Millennium Park in Chicago) to professors conducting research in technologies that have come to affect people's everyday lives, UIC has and continues to produce many leaders in numerous areas of study. And although it has its flaws, UIC is always seeking to grow economically and academically.

Apart from its Research I Institution status, rigorous academic programs, and numerous internship and job opportunities, what further makes UIC unique is its ample diversity. Diversity in the student body and faculty, coupled with programs such as study abroad and student exchange, continue to propel UIC into becoming a world leader in technology, business, and politics, as well as in humanitarian and cultural affairs. Also, the opportunity to explore Chicago through the UIC Experience program allows students and staff to have fun and amazing adventures that create long-lasting friendships and memories. In the end, the success of UIC graduates in their future endeavors will always have its roots in the motto of the University: “A world class-education, in a world-class city.”
