Elmhurst College is located near the geographic center of metropolitan Chicago, 16 miles west of the Loop. A short walk from downtown Elmhurst, the campus is easily accessible by car or Metra commuter train.
The Elmhurst campus combines the high-tech necessities of a modern education with the charm of a classic college campus. The 48-acre grounds are an arboretum, with more than 700 varieties of trees, shrubs and other woody plants; our classic red-brick buildings boast wireless Internet access, "smart" classrooms and more.
The College has a long tradition of responsible stewardship of the environment. From low-impact lighting and permeable paving to a LEED-certified residence hall, Elmhurst incorporates green principles throughout campus life.
