  • These campuses cover 311 acres (125.9 ha) in the Little Italy and the University Village section of Chicago.
  • The East Campus was designed in the brutalist style by Walter Netsch.
  • The plan included second-story walkways that connected all of the buildings Some of the later buildings in Netsch's design were not rectilinear (the Behavioral Sciences Building) and even irregularly shaped (Science and Engineering South, and the never-completed Art & Architecture building).
  • These demonstrated his idea of "field theory": designs which used squares and rotations of squares superimposed on one another. While the buildings are largely intact, the walkways were taken down in phases during the early 1990s to make the campus more welcoming.
  • Considerable effort has been expended to modify the original Netsch campus plan to create the feel of a traditional college campus.
  • For example, the area in front of the main administration building, University Hall, has been the site of several renovations in the last decade; and, the UIC Pavilion (a sports arena) was added in 1982.
  • The colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing, Dentistry, Applied Health Sciences and Public Health, as well as the Library of the Health Sciences are all located on the West Campus.

  • Area 311 Acres
