Come Visit Us

We invite you to discover and learn about our beautiful campus in the capital of Illinois! Plan your visit to the University of Illinois Springfield campus and the Springfield, Illinois community. There’s no better way to find that we’re a good fit for you.

We are located six miles southeast of Springfield, occupying 740 acres of prairie land adjacent to Lake Springfield.

The University of Illinois Springfield is a tobacco-free campus.


We offer special preview days for individual future students and their families including an academic fair, campus tours, lunch, and greetings from the Chancellor. If you are interested in bringing a group to visit our campus, please see information about group visits on the Admissions website.


“I often ask students what the deciding factors were in their choice of the University of Illinois’s Springfield campus as the place where they would pursue their college degree. Though academic reputation, small class size and reasonable cost are often mentioned, students also tell me that they fell in love with the campus itself when they made their first visit.”

– Chancellor Koch
