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.


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.

“The Willis Tower is in my backyard and the ‘Bean’ is in my front yard and I get to look at Lake Michigan every day. I’m in the heart of Chicago, not just Chicago... Being in the city means you can go to volunteer opportunities, learn how to interact with people professionally, be independent and get where you need to go without relying on someone else.”
