Student Experience: Life as a Laker

Take it all in – the view of Lake Michigan from your dorm room, the bustle of our thriving student organizations, the green and white pride at athletic events, and the buzz of a booming suburban corridor at our Schaumburg Campus. It’s all here, and it’s all part of life as a Roosevelt Laker.


Campus buildings in Chicago and Schaumburg

Take your place atop (literally) our 32-story vertical campus in the heart of downtown Chicago, or explore the hub for professional programs in northwest suburban Schaumburg.
