Urbana-Champaign provides the perfect location for students looking for academic rigour with a love of the outdoors. Here, urban engages rural for an unparalleled “college-town” experience: corn and cows, Blue Waters supercomputing, barbeque and blues, and historic neighbourhoods. While the university provides atmosphere and resources conducive to research, project execution, and degree completion, the teaming of campus and regional virtues enhances the liveability, comfort, and zest that makes an excellent student experience.

Academic resources on campus are among the finest in the world. The University Library is one of the largest public university collections in the world with 13 million volumes in its 37 unit libraries. . The University boasts 23 Nobel laureates and another 23 Pulitzer prize recipients, reflective of the fantastic quality of education and resources on offer.
Unique characteristics
The Campus is only a few hours south of Chicago, with its sky-high architecture and superlative museums, restaurants and music clubs. You will be situated close to Hemingway's hometown of 'wide lawns and narrow minds,' scattered shrines to local hero Abe Lincoln, and a trail of corn dogs, pies and drive-in movie theaters down Route 66. A cypress swamp and a prehistoric World Heritage site make appearances in Illinois too, making it the perfect location for students who want the best academic offering and enjoy history, culture and the outdoors.
The University is in the twin cities of Champaign and Urbana (total population 207,000) in east-central Illinois. Situated about 140 miles south of Chicago, 125 miles west of Indianapolis, and 180 miles northeast of St. Louis.
