Located within walking distance of campus, the UIS Field Station at Lake Springfield, provides exciting opportunities for hands-on, field based learning, as well as opportunities for research. For those needing a break, a range of recreation activities are also supported by the Field Station. Additionally, the lake side setting provides an inspiring get-away for those looking to think, write, read, or create.

Renovations are currently underway! The focus has been on the common room. We expect to have the building ready during the Fall Semester. Check out the architects renderings. Want to learn more about the Field Station and how it might be used? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions.
